by | June 9, 2005 | Comments

Justin Lin, director of the acclaimed indie "Better Luck Tomorrow," has been signed by Universal to direct the third entry of their "Fast and the Furious" franchise. The Hollywood Reporter indicates that "the new film will be set in Tokyo amid the underground world of Japanese drift racing," and that none of the principals from the previous entries will be needed for this follow-up

"Furious" producer Neal Moritz has tapped "Cellular" scribe Chris Morgan for the screenplay, which will focus on a guy named "Shaun Boswell, who, to avoid jail, goes to live with his uncle, a military officer, in a cramped apartment in a low-rent section of Tokyo." Universal plans to shoot in the U.S. and Asia before the end of the year.
