Justin Lin to Return for Fast and Furious 6

ON

Following a record-setting box office weekend, Fast Five director Justin Lin has confirmed to USA Today that he’ll be back for a sixth entry in the high-octane franchise.

“It’s pretty much 100 percent,” Lin says, “It’s going to happen.”

Lin’s comments match those made by Vin Diesel to ComingSoon.net last year on the Georgia set of the latest adventure.

“This is a trilogy,” the star announced, “…When I was thinking of this ‘Fast & Furious,’ I thought of it as three stories. The one that you saw [4], this one [5] and the final one [6].”

Lin’s comments today, however, are a bit more ambiguous regarding the ultimate future of the franchise:

“At five, we’re just hitting our stride,” he says, “We’re growing. People want to continue this journey.”

Indeed, plans may have changed since Diesel spoke or the star may personally have plans to exit the franchise after one more big-screen outing. What is certain is that the locale will be updated next time Dom and his team return to theaters. While Lin only says that a change of scenery will happen, Diesel was, last year, a bit more specific.

“I think we’ll be in Europe in the last one,” he announced.
