Though Rob Cohen started the franchise with the first film and various helmers have handled the numerous entries over the years, no filmmaker is more synonymous with the "Fast and Furious" franchise than Justin Lin.

Having helmed the third through sixth of the films, including the critically acclaimed apex of the series in "Fast Five," Lin sat both the seventh and currently in production eighth film of the series out to work on other projects.

Universal Pictures has already announced plans for a ninth and tenth film in the series to be released in 2019 and 2021 respectively, with that tenth film is set to serve as the finale for the main story of the franchise and likely Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto character. Spinoffs and prequels are planned, but 'Fast 10' is the effective being seen as the "end" of the main thrust of the series.
