With the Fast & Furious franchise in his rear-view mirror, Justin Lin has signed on to direct Times Square for Focus Features.

The story centers on a young man who is torn between the neighborhood crime boss who raised him, and the ex-cop who swore to protect him. The plot is set during the transition period where Times Square was transformed from a seedy neighborhood to the highly-commercialized tourist destination it is today.

Taylor Materne and Jake Rubin wrote the script, which landed on the 2012 Black List. Justin Lin is also producing with Troy Craig Poon for Perfect Storm, alongside Chernin Entertainment and Far Hills Pictures. No production schedule was given.

Justin Lin is attached to direct the Untitled Jason Bourne Sequel for Universal Pictures. He is currently directing the pilot episode of Scorpion for CBS.
