It’s been five days since Justin Lin pulled the brake lever on Fast & Furious 7, opting not to direct the movie thanks to general exhaustion and the breakneck pace at which Universal wanted the next entry in the speedy series made. No cynics and haters, the executives didn’t decide it should be “no one,” *Tongue Out* they’re in negotiations with “Saw” man James Wan. According to Deadline, Lin apparently let it be known a while ago that he was out, which has given Universal time to find someone new. Among those considered were Kick-Ass 2’s Jeff Wadlow, The Karate Kid’s Harald Zwart and Contraband’s Baltasar Kormakur. But Wan won the job despite his CV containing almost exclusively horror.
Fast & Furious 7, written once more by Chris Morgan, is gearing up to shoot this summer for a 2014 release.
