Justin Lin, long time director of the 'Fast and Furious'
franchise, has decided to step down as director for the upcoming "Fast X." His reasoning to do so remains unclear, although in a statement the director stated that he will remain a part of the franchise as a producer, and he thanked the 'Fast and Furious' family for welcoming him in with open arms.
Perhaps some clues can be found in a video posted to Vin Diesel's social media, where the star actor is enthusiastically hyping up the movie with Lin. Lin on the other hand, seems less than enthused. He even says that the movie is the "beginning of an epic end," and implies that the movie will be the best "in his heart," but maybe not on the screen. Just by looking at his face, you can tell that he has had enough of the franchise, and it's no surprise he decided to leave soon after. Ten movies in, you'd think maybe the 'Fast and Furious' franchise would too.
