Jeff Wadlow ("Kick-Ass 2," "Never Back Down") is reportedly at the top of the list to take over the helm of the upcoming seventh "Fast and Furious" feature at Universal Pictures.

Justin Lin, who directed the previous four installments, opted out of the next one this week due to the film's compressed production schedule which sees it being readied for a release next Summer.

As a result, Universal has been on the hunt for replacements and have reportedly managed to cut the list down to three potentials, with Wadlow at the top.

Next on the list is Brad Furman ("The Lincoln Lawyer," "Runner, Runner"), and at the bottom is Harald Zwart ("The Karate Kid," "The Pink Panther 2"). Universal is expected to make an announcement early next week.
