After four instalments, Justin Lin left the Fast & Furious franchise behind, and quickly filled his schedule with all sorts of possible films, none of which have panned out so far. However he’s still trying to get something into production and now he’s signed up for another possibility, Times Square, according to Deadline.
The movie is about a young man who is torn between the local crime boss who raised him and the ex-cop who swore to protect him. The film is set during the time when authorities decided to clean up new York’s Times Square, transforming from a dangerous, seedy area to the tourist destination it is today.
Taylor Materne and Jake Rubin wrote the script, which landed on the 2012 Black List. Lin is also attached to direct a currently untitled Bourne movie, but it’s not known whether that or Times Square might come first.
