Justin Lin stepped down as director of Fast & Furious 10 a few days into production, Deadline reports.

"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. Over 10 years and five films, we have been able to shoot the best actors, the best stunts, and the best damn car chases. On a personal note, as the child of Asian immigrants, I am proud of helping to build the most diverse franchise in movie history. I will forever be grateful to the amazing cast, crew and studio for their support, and for welcoming me into the FAST family," Lin reported.

The production of the tenth part has just begun, and the creators of the project will take a short break to find a replacement for Lin.

The film is due for release in May 2023, and there are no plans to postpone the release date yet.
