The big rumor today is that Justin Lin, the director on the previous “Fast and The Furious” installment, “Tokyo Drift”, may be back for the fourth installment, said to mark the return of Vin Diesel to the franchise that made him famous (and he abandoned for (not so much) greener pastures). The news comes from a memo released by someone in the know that the guys at ComingSoon got their hands on. Basically, it’s a mammoth list of every movie and the cast/crew attached to them (including stars and directors) that the studios are prioritizing to get made before the writers strike hits next year and all movie production is expected to come to a stand still. (Personally I don’t think this is going to happen; can you imagine the money people will lose if it does happen?)
Among the many movies on the list, is the news that Justin Lin will return to direct the fourth installment in the “Furious” franchise, which may or may not be a good idea depending on how you liked (or didn’t like) the previous one. I found it to be entertaining and Lucas Black a welcome addition to the franchise. Then again, I’m easily pleased.
