Well, isn’t this some good and happy Monday news!
Taiwanese director Justin Lin, best known for directing Fast and Furious 3 through 6, is returning to direct the ninth and tenth installments of the franchise, actor Vin Diesel confirmed via a Facebook Live stream last week.
The actor also revealed that Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster), who was absent in the Fate of the Furious, will also make a comeback in the upcoming films. And because Paul Walker’s death in real life was never really addressed in the franchise, we can only wait to see what the writers do with Brian O’Connor’s character.
Lin was introduced to the franchise over 10 years ago with The Fast the Furious: Tokyo Drift. I can only pray that Fast and Furious 9 and 10 will have just as many shots of cars seen through cell phone screens. Because that shit was ace.
