Justin Lin adds another project in the form of an adaptation of David Henry Hwang’s play, ‘Chinglish’

Over the past couple of years, director Justin Lin has become one of the busier filmmakers around.  Despite being connected to and eventually dropping out of both the HIGHLANDER franchise reboot as well as the forthcoming TERMINATOR film, Lin has still managed to solidify himself as one of the most sought after directors around.

Now, according to Deadline, the director will helm an adaptation of David Henry Hwang’s play Chinglish. The play is described as a cross-cultural romantic comedy, and joins FAST SIX and LONE WOLF AND CUB as projects that Lin is currently set to bring to the big screen.

While I wasn’t too keen on Lin early in his early career, since FAST FIVE, he’s a become director I’m really interested in and am curious to see what he does next. I’m not all that familiar with this play, but I do really think that he’s a talented filmmaker. Lin seems  like an odd choice for a project like this, making it all the more interesting.

What do you think?
