Justin Lin Had Departed Fast X Reportedly Due To Vin Diesel’s Behaviour
Justin Lin, who has directed five films in the series previously, was originally supposed to direct Fast X but had to exit the production not very long after the film’s shooting started. Although claimed by Universal that Lin left over a few internal creative differences, many industry insiders close to the Fast X production hinted that Lin left as he couldn’t handle Vin Diesel’s behavior as an actor and producer on the movie. Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk) later signed on to replace Lin as the movie’s director this month.
The returning cast of Fast X consists of Vin Diesel, Charlize Theron, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Michael Rooker, Sung Kang, and Scott Eastwood. Though it is unconfirmed as of now, Cardi B and John Cena are also expected to return as Leysa and Jakob Toretto from 2021’s F9.
Currently filming in London, Fast X is scheduled to hit the theaters on May 19, next year.
