“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 stated.
“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.”
Michelle Rodriguez, Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson and Chris “Ludacris” Bridges are expected to remain in the film. Also, Dan Mazeau is expected to remain the film script’s co-writer. However, it is still unclear who will direct the film moving forward.
