He's getting busier...
Variety reports that director Justin Lin (Fast and Furious) is set to helm the crime thriller Times Square for Focus Features. Chernin Entertainment, Perfect Storm (including Lin and Troy Craig Poon) and Far Hills Pictures will produce.
The script was written by Taylor Materne and Jake Rubin. It appeared on the 2012 Black List. The story follows the transformation of Times Square from a "seedy neighborhood" to the way it is now. A man's loyalties are divided between his neighborhood boss who raised him and the former cop that swore to protect him.
Lin is currently directing Scorpion for CBS and is attached to Universal's next Bourne film.
