'Community''s infamous "Six Seasons and a Movie" mantra has proven increasingly accurate with each surprise renewal, and while NBC has yet to formally decide on a sixth, and likely final season for the Greendale gang, new movie rumors suggest 'Fast and Furious' (and former 'Community) director Justin Lin may be eyed to helm a theatrical venture.
Before he went on to direct four entries in the lovably ludicrous 'Fast and Furious' series, Justin Lin was known for his small, personal film, 'Better Luck Tomorrow' (and, uh, 'Annapolis'). The latest project on his plate looks like it could be a return to the smaller, more character-driven films of his early work: producing a feature adaptation of the acclaimed documentary 'The Battered Bastards of Baseball.'
Just when we thought 2015 couldn't be more tightly packed with big-time blockbusters, Universal Studios goes and sets the next 'Bourne' movie for release that August.
If there's one thing that we know for sure, it's that there is no way that 'Fast and Furious 6' won't be one of this summer's biggest crowd pleasers. A new featurette about the latest entry in this seemingly unstoppable franchise has arrived and it's only managed to get us more excited about seeing this crew get back together.
'Fast and Furious 7' has been fast-tracked for a summer 2014 release, which is great news for us movie fans. This was not such great news for director Justin Lin, who is still working hard to finish up 'Fast and Furious 6,' which opens next month. Because of that scheduling conflict, Lin - who has now directed four of the 'Fast and Furious' movies - will not return to direct 'Fast and Furious 7'...which is also not such great news for us movie fans.
Though Justin Lin has been attached for a while, it appears that his adaptation of 'Lone Wolf and Cub' is moving forward, and David and Janet Peoples are set up to write it for Kamala Films. Lin is currently working on his sequel to 'Fast Five,' so this has some time before it could possibly hit the big screen.
