Justin Lin


WIRED has called filmmaker Justin Lin “a spectacularly skilled [craftsman] with a perplexingly low profile that belies his blistering box office track record.” Lin is the director and creative force behind four films in The Fast and the Furious franchise. He has reinvigorated the series with fresh storytelling, clever stunts and the strength of a diverse and talented cast. Most recently, Lin directed Star Trek Beyond, the latest film of the rebooted series, and serves as executive producer on CBS’ popular procedural Scorpion. Lin got his big break directing 2002’s Sundance-favorite, the groundbreaking Better Luck Tomorrow, which was acquired and distributed by Paramount/MTV Films.
