Justin Lin

After signing on to direct a couple of episodes from season 2 of HBO's True Detective, Fast and Furious filmmaker Justin Lin is now the man that will take over from JJ Abrams on Star Trek 3. Lin helmed four of the action-petrolhead movies which grossed $1.9 billion in worldwide box office receipts.

Though Abrams was never really in the running for the third sci-fi movie - given his allegiances to Star Wars - Lin does replace the high profile Roberto Orci, who climbed from the director's seat a couple of weeks ago.

Deadline reports that Lin has been lined up to direct the first two episodes of the new season of the hit HBO show which walked away with five Emmy awards last week. Rumours have been swirling for months about the plot and casting details for the next outing which helped bring Matthew McConaughey back into public favour. Previously more known for his appearences in terrible rom-coms such as How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days and Failure to Launch, McConaughey blew audiences away with his gritty portrayal of Detective Rush Cohle.

Justin Lin To Follow Up 'Fast & Furious' Success With 'Bourne Legacy' Sequel


Justin Lin Jeremy Renner Vin Diesel Dwayne Johnson Paul Walker Matt Damon

Justin Lin has been signed on to direct the next instalment of the Bourne franchise, which will see Jeremy Renner return as the star of the show. Filming for the fifth Bourne film is due to begin next year, with the movie expected to arrive in cinemas in summer 2015.

Lin, who masterminded the Fast and Furious franchise - which has become one of the most successful film series in history - was announced as the director of the next Bourne film via Deadline, who also revealed that Renner will be returning as Aaron Cross. The 2015 release is being written by Invictus and Sherlock Holmes writer, Anthony Peckham.

The fifth Bourne film will be Lin's first project since stepping down as the head of the Fast and Furious franchise - which grossed over $1 billion from the last three films alone - in place of James Wan. Universal have enlisted the help of Lin to hopefully propel the Bourne series to similar heights enjoyed by F&F.

Fast And Furious 6: High Octane Thrill Ride, Or Car Crash? [Trailer & Pictures]

The final trailer for Fast & Furious 6 is finally here, featuring Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson and Vin Diesel driving cars really, really fast. Ok, so it's a little more than that, though not too much. Essentially, the latest trailer is the best bits from the previous clips that have made their way online.

If you're a fan of the franchise you're probably aware that Justin Lin's swan song in the series follows Dwayne Johnson's Luke Hobbs tracking down Dom Toretto (Diesel) in order to ask for his help in taking down a much more dangerous criminal gang, led by Owen Shaw (Luke Evans). Johnson's character needs to recover Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) whom he assumed was dead. Of course, nothing is ever that simple in the world of the Fast and the Furious and Shaw has his own team of experts pulling off dating heists.

Fast & Furious 6 Trailer


Dom, Brian and Mia may be living it up with $100 million dollars in their back pockets, but living the fast life hasn't been entirely beneficial as a hole in the lives has been left by the fact that they cannot return home after the trouble they got in with the law. When DSS agent Luke Hobbs approaches Dom to ask for his help nabbing a gang of highly-trained drivers who are leaving a trail of destruction everywhere they go, Dom is less than tempted by the offer. However, when Hobbs shows him a week old photograph of Dom's former love Letty who he thought was dead, he takes on the job with his friends, determined to find out the truth even if it's the last thing he wants to hear. In return for the capture of this gang of road miscreants, the trio are offered a full pardon for their own crimes. However, with the stakes this high, survival becomes the most sought after prize for their latest challenge.

Fast & Furious 6 Trailer


Dominic, Brian and Mia maybe $100 million richer following their daring heist at the expense of crime lord Hernan Reyes in Rio de Janeiro, but their lives have been left somewhat ruptured by the fact that they cannot return home despite DSS agent Luke Hobbs letting them go after they saved his life. However, they are given a chance to be pardoned in full when Hobbs enlists them and their team to help him take down a group of deadly mercenary drivers with their own formidable street racing skills. Things aren't as simple as that though, especially when Dom discovers that his former love Letty who he believed to be dead makes a return as the brutal and self-serving assistant of the criminal kingpin behind the organisation. Will the Fast and Furious team succeed in the dangerous mission with their lives and their chance to go home hanging in the balance?

Following the events of the Fast franchise's fifth instalment 'Fast Five', our favourite street racers are back with the upcoming 'Fast & Furious 6'. With a full all-star cast return, the movie looks set to be a hit following the trailer's debut at the Super Bowl XLVII. It has been directed by Justin Lin ('Annapolis') and written by Chris Morgan ('Cellular', 'Wanted') of the last three instalments and is scheduled to be released in the UK on May 24th 2013.

Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Luke Evans, Gina Carano, Elsa Pataky, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Elsa Pataky, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Joe Taslim, Rowena Diamond, Kim Kold,

Arnold Schwarzenegger Breaks Silence On ‘Terminator 5’ Speculation


Arnold Schwarzenegger Justin Lin

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s ‘Terminator 5’ ambitions may be on hold, after the action star revealed there are no firm plans for another movie. A fourth film ‘Terminator Salvation’ came out in 2009 but did not feature the Austrian, though a report in 2011 suggested Arnie was teaming up with ‘Fast & Furious’ director Justin Lin.

In a new interview with Empire magazine, Schwarzenegger was asked whether the franchise still had life, replying, “They have been trying to put a script together but I've not seen it, so I've no idea. There's nothing on the board at this point. Nothing on the plan.” It’s likely that film studios would welcome a fifth movie – especially considering the success of The Expendables franchise – though a poor script would do nobody any favours. Arnie, now 65, also discussed how his increasing years will affect his forthcoming performances, explaining, “In the end you perform for the people. When you're not believable as the guy doing high kicks and flying through the air, then you have to punch up other areas and rely more on drama. This change and what happens in the near future with all my movies is all going to be a good experience for me. I have to broaden myself, expand and concentrate on the acting and on the characters.”

His next movie ‘The Last Stand’ is due out in early 2013 – his first leading role in over 10 years.

Shopping For Fangs Review


Excellent
Truly bizarre, this collaboration between Quentin Lee (Drift) and Justin Lin (Better Luck Tomorrow) traces werewolfism amongst the Los Angeles Asian community, while a wallflower housewife is stalked by a blonde, sunglasses-clad waitress. The connection between the two stories is less inspired than it should be (and the werewolf piece is far more compelling), but this super low-budget indie stands out as one of the best unseen flicks in recent years.
