Fast X may have found its new director. Universal Pictures has reportedly hired Lewis Leterier to replace Justin Lynn in the Fast X director’s chair. Furious. This will be the first trip for Leterrier to head a movie about Fast and Furious. However, he is best known for directing The Incredible Hulk (2008), Now You See Me and the first two Transporter films.
Soon report from Variety suggests that Leterrier was Universal Pictures’ first choice to direct Fast X after Lynn left as director. It is reported that the deal has not yet been finalized.
This revelation would be good news for the studio, as it is claimed that the director’s absence cost him up to $ 1 million (approximately Rs 7.65 crore) per day to keep the cast and crew. The report also suggests that Universal Pictures will seek to conclude negotiations as early as possible to prevent future conflicts in the planning of stars such as Jason Momoa, Charlize Theron and Brie Larson, who are also part of other established film franchises.
Letterie is expected to have a difficult job, as the film has been in production for a week under Lynn. Vin Diesel, Theron and Momoa are reportedly already on set, but production has been suspended in the main block. It is assumed that the second part continued to be filmed in the UK. In addition, Fast X is reportedly originally written as the first part of a two-part conclusion to the Fast & Furious franchise. It is unclear whether this will change.
Lynn announced her departure on April 26, citing “creative differences.” He has directed five films in the Fast & Furious franchise and co-authored Fast X with Dan Maso. Lynn remains on board as the producer of this film.
Fast X is due out on May 19, 2023.
