Toward the end of April, fans were ecstatic to find out that production officially started on the highly anticipated 10th film “Fast X.” Unfortunately, that excitement was short-lived after director Justin Lin announced he would be stepping down. “With the support of Universal, I have made the difficult decision to step back as director of FAST X, while remaining with the project as a producer,” he wrote via The Fast Saga’s social media channels. Lin then reflected on his impactful time directing five of the nine films before quickly highlighting the franchise’s diversity. “I will forever be grateful to the amazing cast, crew and studio for their support and for welcoming me into the FAST family,” he concluded.

Even though Lin refrained from spilling the reason for his departure as director, sources told Deadline that it was due to not seeing eye-to-eye on the artistic vision. The aforementioned sources also told the publication that due to the shakeup, production would be put on a short hiatus while a replacement is selected.

Lin’s departure comes a few weeks after several casting announcements were announced for the upcoming film. On April 9, Vin Diesel revealed that “Captain Marvel” actor Brie Larson would be joining the “Fast” family. “You have no idea how timeless and amazing she will be in our mythology,” he wrote on Instagram. A few months before Larson’s casting reveal, “Justice League” star Jason Momoa was announced as the new villain of the long-running franchise.
