Fast & Furious 6 director Justin Lin is moving on to another Universal Pictures franchise, by signing on to direct The Bourne Legacy sequel.

We reported in August that the sequel is moving forward with Anthony Peckham (Sherlock Holmes, Invictus) writing the screenplay. Jeremy Renner is expected to return as Treadstone agent Aaron Cross, although no other cast members have been confirmed at this time.

Justin Lin will also produce alongside Frank Marshall, Jeffrey M. Weiner and Ben Smith. No production schedule was given at this time, but the project is still considered a high priority at Universal. The Bourne Legacy took in more than $275 million worldwide last year.

It's also worth noting that, back in August, a rumor circulated that Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass were in talks to return to the franchise, although the filmmaker debunked the story shortly thereafter.
