Justin Lin has Fast Six finale finished

In an interview with Box Office Magazine, Fast and Furious Five director Justin Lin revealed he has “boarded … pre-vised … and cut” the final 12-minute sequence to sequel Fast Six.

Although a sixth film of the series wasn’t a certainty when Lin was shooting the fifth instalment, he took the opportunity to plan an end-point for the tale.

“[In] many ways, some of the big pieces of Fast Six have already been discussed: I already have a 12-minute sequence done. I did it just as an exercise. I had it done before we were finished with Fast Five, actually… But I felt like I really wanted to make sure that the last scene, which I had talked to Vin about countless times—I wanted to make sure that was done. So actually I boarded it, I pre-vised it, and I cut it. So it’s funny, when we were in Atlanta shooting it, I already had the end sequence to Fast Six done. And that was what I wanted to work towards.”

Lin is now working with screenwriter Chris Morgan – and apparently, star Vin Diesel? – about the direction of the sixth film. It will arrive in cinemas May 2013. Lin also announced last week he will follow up Fast Six with Terminator 5.

In other Lin news (and there seems to be a lot of that lately), The Hollywood Reporter has revealed he will no longer helm Summit’s remake of Highlander.

Discuss: Would you have rather seen Lin take on the Terminator sequel or a Highlander remake?
