The production of Fast & Furious 10 (Fast X) started the previous week, as planned. However, just a few days after starting, an unexpected obstacle crossed his path. Justin Lin, director of the film, left his postalthough it will remain as a producer.

According to dead linethe most worrying thing is that Justin Lin left the address of Fast & Furious 10 by a series of creative differences. Although he is not the first filmmaker to walk out on a feature film, and he will certainly not be the last, it is not common for it to happen a few days after filming begins. This suggests that there was a serious disagreement with no possibility of finding a solution.

“With the support of Universal, I made the difficult decision to step down as director of Fast Xalthough I remain in the project as a producer. For 10 years and five movies, we’ve been able to shoot the best actors, the best stunts and the best car chases.” expressed Justin Linand I add:

“On a personal note, as the son of Asian immigrants, I am proud to help build the most diverse franchise in film history. I will forever be grateful to the incredible cast, crew and studio for their support and for welcoming me to the family Fast.”

A second work unit is in charge, but activities are expected to be suspended very soon while they look for another director. In fact, the production is already evaluating possible candidates. The problem, of course, is that finding a suitable replacement is not so easy in these circumstances.
