Director Justin Lin, who is currently busy filming the sixth entry in the Fast & Furious franchise, is lining up a bit of a departure for a future project. Per Vulture, the Fast Five helmer is in talks to direct the racially charged drama L.A. Riots.

Now it appears that Lee is off the film altogether, and Lin may be the guy to finally get this thing into production. Hit the jump for more.
