Fast & Furious 6 director Justin Lin has been chosen to receive this year’s CinemaCon Director of the Year Award at the upcoming event to be held at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. CinemaCon, the largest gathering of motion picture theatre industry professionals, is set to take place April 15-18, 2013.
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.’”
