Director Justin Lin quit ‘Fast X’ after ‘major disagreement’ with Vin Diesel, says report

  • Vin Diesel’s behavior on set was reportedly partly to blame for Justin Lin’s departure from “Fast X.”
  • Last week, Lin announced via the film’s official Instagram account that he is no longer directing the 10th installment of the “Fast & Furious” franchise. 
  • Citing multiple sources, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Lin had had enough of the constant script revisions, Vin Diesel’s behavior and the overall filming process.
  • Earlier, an unnamed source with “knowledge of the situation” told New York Daily News: “Diesel shows up late to the set. He doesn’t know his lines. And he shows up out of shape.
  • Lin, who helmed five “Fast & Furious” films, is set to be replaced by “The Incredible Hulk” director Louis Leterrier for “Fast X.”

Reports have claimed that director Justin Lin left “Fast X” due to star Vin Diesel’s purportedly difficult behavior on set and after a “major disagreement” with the star during a meeting.

On April 26, the Taiwanese American filmmaker announced via the film’s official Instagram account that he is no longer directing the 10th installment of the “Fast & Furious” franchise.
