At the end of April, Justin Lin’s departure as director of ‘Fast & Furious 10’ was announced after more than 10 years in the saga. It is said that this mishap has caused Universal Pictures some very large extra expenses, specifically between 600 thousand and 1 million dollars a day. Therefore, those of Universal have not lost a second when it comes to the search for a possible replacement. Finally and after considering some possibilities such as David Leitch or F. Gary Gray, previous directors of the saga, the chosen one has been Louis Leterrier (‘Transporter’).
On the other hand, although the exact reason for Lin’s departure was not revealed, There are rumors that point to Vin Diesel’s bad attitude on the set. According to a source from the NY Daily News, the actor “He shows up late on set. He doesn’t know his lines. And he shows up in poor shape.” In addition, The Hollywood Reporter tells that the still producer and writer of ‘Fast & Furious 10’ affirmed that “the movie is worthless” his “mental health.”
The tenth installment of the road and action lovers will bring back Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto along with the rest of his family: Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, plus an appearance from Charlize Theron. Finally, the new additions of Jason Momoa (‘Aquaman’) and Brie Larson (‘Captain Marvel’) will join the cast.
One of the most expensive movies in history
The intense search for a replacement for Lin has led to extraordinary expenses for Universal, adding to what is already becoming a massive budget. And is that ‘Fast & Furious 10’ could easily become one of the most expensive movies ever made.
According to ComicBook, the film would be approaching 300 million dollars right now, and that’s not counting advertising and marketing expenses that they will have to face.

Despite the obstacles, ‘Fast & Furious 10’ maintains its release date for May 19, 2023.
