'Fast & Furious' Director Justin Lin Inks Deal with Universal, Lines Up Eight Upcoming Projects

Business has been good for Justin Lin. Fresh off of directing Fast Five, the fifth installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise (of which Lin has directed three) to $605 million worldwide, the director is certainly in demand. Yesterday, Lin inked a two-year first-look deal for his newly formed production company Barnstorm Pictures with Universal Pictures. Barnstorm will be based on the Universal lot. There, Lin will be working on what’s being called an “elevated tentpole” aimed at global audiences.

But that’s not all. He’s already put together a rather busy slate of directing and producing gigs that include an action-adventure spy film called Leading Man, an adaptation of the comic released in 2006 written by B. Clay Moore. The story centers on a Hollywood hunk who also happens to be the world’s greatest super spy.
 
Then there’s his feature about the 442nd Infantry Regiment, the all-Japanese American regiment that also happens to be the most decorated WWII unit. Lin will also serve as producer for an untitled sci-fi crime thriller to be directed by Robert Glickert. Glickert served as Lin’s assistant on Fast & Furious. Lin is expected to helm Fast & Furious 6 which has pegged May 24, 2013 as its release date.
 
Lin is also attached to several projects currently in development, including a fifth Terminator movie, a Western titled Brigands of Rattleborge and a psychological drama based on the acclaimed novel by Scott Heim.
 
As if that wasn’t already a full plate, Lin is also working in conjunction with Marissa McMahon, daughter-in-law of WWE CEO Vince McMahon, on an update of the acclaimed samurai manga epic Lone Wolf and Cub. The manga was adapted into a Japanese film series in the early ‘70s starring Tomisaburo Wakayama and became known as the Sword of Vengeance series, based on the first film’s title. The first three films were produced by Shintaro Katsu, Wakayama’s brother who is best known for his portrayal of blind samurai/masseuse Zatoichi in 26 films. The series also received two Japanese TV adaptations, once between 1973-76 and most recently between 2002-2004.
 
With so many different projects upcoming, do you think Lin is taking on too much? Which of these projects looks most interesting to you?
