Justin Lin may be back directing final ‘Fast and Furious’ movie. In an interview with Wired, Vin Diesel says he wants to bring Justin Lin back to the “Furious” franchise after helming the third-through-sixth films in the diverse action franchise.
When asked if Justin will direct the finale, Diesel said, “I’m going to bring him back. Whenever we had a day off-even on Thanksgiving, his favorite holiday-it was Justin and me working on how far we could take it. Success comes from 10 years of that mentality.”
Justin laughs when asked about Vin’s remarks. “Vin says you finish what you started,” the “Star Trek Beyond” director says, “and he’s very persuasive.”
Vin is currently filming “Fast and Furious 8” with Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Elsa Pataky, Lucas Black, The Rock, Kurt Russell and Charlize Theron. Directed by “Straight Outta Compton” director F. Gary Gray, “Fast 8” will be released in the U.S. on April 14, 2017.
“Fast 8” will be followed by a ninth film to be released on April 19, 2019 and a tenth film planned for an April 2, 2021 release.
