Lin broke several pandemic-era box office records with “F9,” the ninth entry in the “Fast and Furious” franchise and the fifth with him directing after James Wan and F. Gary Gray handled the seventh and eighth films, respectively. “F9” opened in June 2021 and went on to grossed $720 million globally, with Universal booking Lin for the final two planned installments in the stunt-heavy series. Since bursting onto the scene in 2003 with the edgy low-budget indie “Better Luck Tomorrow,” about bored Asian-American teens who embark on a crime spree, The Taiwanese-born, California-reared director has also tackled mainstream sci-fi (2016’s “Star Trek Beyond”) and prestige TV (HBO’s “True Detective” in 2015).
