Justin Lin, the helmer of the car-racing-themed movie, will serve as one of the producers of an untitled science fiction/thriller project, which is said to be in the vein of 'Heat' and 'Bourne' films.

After gaining success through "" and its previous "The Fast and The Furious" film series, Justin Lin is back with a new movie. This time, he will once again team up with Universal Pictures to develop an untitled sci-fi/thriller project, in which he will serve as the producer along with Scott Stuber.

Bobby Glickert, who was a P.A. in "" and "" as well as Lin's former assistant in "", wrote the outline for the forthcoming film. He will also serve as the helmer and the producer. In the meantime, Universal is still on the hunt for a screenwriter.

Although details are being kept under wraps, Lin has spoken to Heat Vision, "Taking a step back, as a viewer, the tone and the gritty approach to the sci-fi genre taken here is something that hasn't been seen in a while." A source also opened up to the site, saying that the flick will be in the vein of Michael Mann's "Heat" and the "Bourne" movies.
