Fast X: Vin Diesel (Reportedly) The Reason Justin Lin Left The ‘Fast & Furious’ Final Movies

Fast X Vin Diesel

A few days after production on the latest installment in the Fast & Furious movie franchise began, news broke out that the director, Justin Lin, who had helmed the affairs of the franchise since 2006’s The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, would no longer be directing the final movies in the long-running franchise. Now we know why.

New reports by an anonymous insider via the New York Daily News suggest that franchise vet Vin Diesel may be to blame for the director’s exit.

The source expressed that Vin Diesel “has become a problem on recent installments in the action series and expressed his shock that Lin is walking away from a lucrative paycheck.

See what the unnamed source shared below:

“I’ve never seen anything like it. Lin’s giving up $10 or $20 million. Diesel shows up late to the set. He doesn’t know his lines. And he shows up out of shape.”

There’s clearly more to the story and time will reveal all.

Justin Lin’s absence is reported to be costing Universal Studios between $600k to $1 million daily to keep the cast and crew locked down. There’s no new update on who will be filling up the empty director’s chair.
