The Fast and Furious series, which is closely followed by millions of fans around the world today, came to the fore with the name of its 10th film last week. The name of the 10th movie in the series was officially determined as ‘Fast X’. There is news that will break the hearts of the fans today about the movie, which we learned will also feature names such as Brie Larson and Jason Momoa.
According to the information conveyed by Deadline, Fast X director Justin Lin has decided to leave the director’s chair. With this decision, which came just a few days after the production of the film began, it was announced that the production process of the film would stop until a new director was found. With this development, it is considered certain that the previously announced vision date of the film will be postponed.
He will continue as the producer of the film
“With Universal’s support, I’ve made the difficult decision to step back from being the director of FAST X and remain a producer on the project. Over the course of 10 years and five films, we’ve managed to shoot the best actors, the best stuntmen, and the best car chases. On a personal note, as a child of Asian immigrants, I am proud to have helped create the most diverse series in the history of cinema. I will be forever grateful to the amazing cast, crew and studio for their support and for inviting me to the FAST family.”
Justin Lin joined the Fast and the Furious series with the third movie, Tokyo Drift, and played a major role in transforming the series from being race-oriented into an action series. Lin, who was away from the series for a while in the seventh and eighth films, returned in the ninth film. The ninth film in the series became one of the biggest movies to debut after the pandemic, with a revenue of $ 720 million.
