It’s an incredible honor to join this franchise and this family."
Recently in an interview with Entertainment Weekly podcast, Binge, Vin revealed that he was not sure of being a part of this franchise as he said, “Universal ended up being involved in the release of ‘Pitch Black’, the only other movie I had done of that size, and so they said, ‘We got this movie that’s about illegal street car racing, and we want you to play this character, who’s a tough guy, outlaw, with a heart and a code’. “Then they describe that scene you see in the first movie, where the camera goes through my eye and down my arm and into the engine, and that’s the only thing they described. And I said, ‘Yes, I’m in!'” He added, “The next day, I’m supposed to go the premiere in Australia for ‘Pitch Black’, and I read the script, and I go — I’m conflicted here because this script is not what I thought it would be.”
The film is directed by Justin Lin, who previously helmed The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, Fast Five and Fast & Furious 6. There are reports that even the 10th instalment will be directed by him.
