Justin Lin Signs Two Year/Two Film Deal With Universal

Universal has signed Justin Lin to a two-year two-picture deal that will see the director make a sixth Fast And Furious film and another, unnamed project for the studio.

Lin has directed the last three Fast And Furious films, keeping the franchise lucrative for the studio. He has already stated that he has a segment of the proposed six installment already planned out.

Although the details of what the second film of the deal will be are still a mystery, there are a couple of prime candidates. The first possibility is The Leading Man, an adaption of the 2006 graphic novel which featured a handsome Hollywood hunk who also was the world’s greatest secret agent. The second is a film about the 442 Regiment, the all Japanese-American army unit that would become the most decorated combat unit of World War II.

Lin also has plans for a fifth Terminator film although no one is certain as to whether that will go ahead. He also recently dropped out of directing the planned remake of The Highlander for Summit Entertainment.
