Los An­ge­les: Justin Lin may be back di­rect­ing fi­nal “Fast and Fu­ri­ous” movie. Vin Diesel said he wants to bring the di­rec­tor back to the “Fu­ri­ous” fran­chise af­ter helm­ing the third-through-sixth films in the di­verse ac­tion fran­chise. When asked if Justin will di­rect the fi­nale, Diesel said, “I’m go­ing to bring him back. When­ever we had a day off-even on Thanks­giv­ing, his fa­vorite hol­i­day-it was Justin and me work­ing on how far we could take it. Suc­cess comes from 10 years of that men­tal­ity.” Diesel is cur­rently film­ing “Fast

and Fu­ri­ous 8” with Michelle Ro­driguez, Jor­dana Brew­ster, Tyrese Gib­son, Lu­dacris, Elsa Pataky, Lu­cas Black, The Rock, Kurt Rus­sell and Char­l­ize Theron. Di­rected by “Straight Outta

Comp­ton” di­rec­tor F Gary Gray, “Fast 8” will be re­leased in the US on April 14, 2017. “Fast 8” will be fol­lowed by a ninth film to be re­leased on April 19, 2019 and a tenth film planned for an April 2, 2021 re­lease. Univer­sal also plans both

“Fast and Fu­ri­ous” spin-offs and pre­quels.
