While Justin Lin will not be helming the latest Fast and Furious film, that doesn’t mean that he’ll just be sitting around twiddling his thumbs. Universal Studios has just announced that Lin will be directing the next Bourne film starring Jeremy Renner.
Deadline reveals that Lin will be calling the shots for the next film in the franchise, which will continue to be centered on Aaron Cross (Renner). Anthony Peckham (Sherlock Holmes) has written the story. The studios is hoping to have this film released by summer 2015.
If you ask me, Lin is the real star of the last couple Fast and Furious movies, as his action direction plays a big role in the series’ reborn success. I don’t have any doubts that Lin will have trouble transferring his talents to the Bourne series.
