Showbiz can be shady and rife with feuds, arguments, and creative differences. It's true that not all stars can get along in Hollywood, and many celebs actually leave projects because of other people.
Justin Lin has been one of the defining figures of the 'Fast & Furious' franchise for years, directing films four through six before taking a break, returning to co-write and direct the final installment: 'Fast X.' He has been deeply involved with the franchise for more than a decade, and even more so with the final film. This is why it came as a huge surprise when Lin announced he was stepping down as director just two days into production. In a statement released on April 26, Lin wrote, "With the support of Universal, I have made the difficult decision to step back as director of FAST X, while remaining with the project as a producer." He went on to express his gratitude to the cast, crew, and studio, praising them for the incredible work they've done over the years.
Reports say that Lin came to this dramatic decision due to creative differences with the studio, although the separation is believed to be amicable.
