Today, Variety announced that director Louis Leterrier will indeed return to direct the final Fast & Furious film for Universal Pictures. The director was brought on after Justin Lin left the franchise shortly after Fast X began filming. He quickly helped rewrite the entire script on his way to the set.
“Louis joined the ‘Fast & Furious’ team seamlessly, with an innate understanding of the franchise that is stronger than ever after two decades. Under his direction, ‘Fast X’ is a high intensity thriller with all the spectacular action, emotion, and twists that the fans have come to expect – and then some. We are thrilled that he will continue to work his magic in the director’s chair.”- Universal Pictures president Peter Cramer.
The Transporter director has always been courted to direct a Fast film over the last two decades but never got his chance until Fast X. He joins Lin and the previous film directors that included Rob Cohen, John Singleton, James Wan, and F. Gary Gray.
Fast & Furious 11 has no set release date
