Justin Lin Exits ‘Fast X’ as Director, Remains in Producer Role – The Hollywood Reporter

Justin Lin on Tuesday announced that he was stepping out of his role as director for the upcoming Fast X of the Fast & Furious franchise days into production.

The sudden, shocking announcement did not give a reason. Production, so far, has been second unit filming, which will remain the focus as an immediate director search is undertaken.

“With the support of Universal, I have made the difficult decision to step back as director of Fast X, while remaining with the project as a producer,” Lin said in a statement posted to the franchise’s official Twitter account. “Over 10 years and five films, we have been able to shoot the best actors, the best stunts, and the best damn car chases. On a personal note, as the child of Asian immigrants, I am proud of helping to build the most diverse franchise in movie history. I will forever be grateful to the amazing cast, crew and studio for their support, and for welcoming me into the Fast family.”

The action film which stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Jordana Brewster, among more.

More to come.
