Justin Lin is going back to his indie roots with The Last Days Of John Allen Chau, and here are the first details.

Justin Lin may be best known for steering the Fast & Furious franchise to heady heights, however creative differences led to him walking away from the upcoming Fast X, replaced by Louis Leterrier at the very last minute.
Now, Lin has set his next film, and he’s going back to his indie filmmaking roots with The Last Days Of John Allen Chau.

The plot will follow the titular character as he attempts to connect with the notoriously isolated inhabitants of North Sentinal Island – a community completely cut off from the outside world and who are known for killing anybody who attempts to initiate contact.

No casting is confirmed as of yet, but Lin will direct from a screenplay by Source Code writer Ben Ripley.

We’ll keep you updated as we hear more.
