HomeCinemaWhile the previously scheduled director, Justin Lin, has left the ship, it is the Frenchman behind The Incredible Hulk who will replace him on the fly. We did not see it coming: while Justin Lin left the production of Fast & Furious X when filming had started for a week, Universal had to urgently seek a new filmmaker – it is said that the break in production would have cost a million dollars a day. And, in less than a week, a replacement was found. In this case, Frenchman Louis Leterrier, Hollywood’s handyman, capable of directing a Marvel blockbuster (The Incredible Hulk) like a false peplum (Clash of the Titans), an action film with an XXL cast (Elusive) or even a comedy with Sacha Baron Cohen (The Brothers Grimsby). It was with Netflix that he made a name for himself again internationally, with his stop motion series The Dark Crystal: The Age of Resistance, but also with Lupine and the sequel to On the other side of the periphery with Omar Sy and Laurent Lafitte. In short, Louis Leterrier has more than one string to his bow and the studio’s decision to enlist him seems logical. On the other hand, it does not look easy for the guy: he arrives on a set where all the creative decisions have been made by Lin, and where the filming would have obviously continued with the secondary production teams. It must be said that, given the calendars of the franchises of Jason Momoa, Brie Larson, Vin Diesel and Charlize Theron, the puzzle of adding days of filming seems impossible to solve. agrees. Case to follow.
