Managing Director Mitch Neuhauser made the announcement of Lin’s award, stating: “When Justin Lin calls for action on the set, you don’t just get action, you get ACTION, clearly evidenced by the three blockbuster Fast & Furious films already under his belt. And come Memorial Day, Lin is set to take movie audiences for another thrilling, action-packed ride with the newest installment in the hit franchise. CinemaCon couldn’t be happier to be honoring Justin Lin as its 2013 ‘Director of the Year.’”
Universal Pictures’ Fast & Furious 6 will open in theaters on May 24, 2013. In addition to that upcoming action film, Lin’s resume includes Better Luck Tomorrow, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, and Fast Five.
