Louis Leterrier to Direct ‘Fast & Furious 11’

The Fast Saga will come to a close with Louis Leterrier at the helm.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, Universal Pictures has announced that Leterrier will see the street racing franchise to the finish line, with the filmmaker set to direct the 11th Fast & Furious film.

“Louis joined the Fast & Furious team seamlessly, with an innate understanding of the franchise that is stronger than ever after two decades. Under his direction, Fast X is a high intensity thriller with all the spectacular action, emotion and twists that the fans have come to expect — and then some. We are thrilled that he will continue to work his magic in the director’s chair,” Universal Pictures president Peter Cramer said in a statement.

Leterrier boarded Fast X after the film’s original director Justin Lin departed the production shortly after filming had commenced. The upcoming film pits Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) against Dante Reyes (Jason Momoa), the son of the villain of Fast Five.

Fast X opens in theaters on May 19, 2023.
