ANNAPOLIS

JUSTIN LIN's (Director) solo directorial debut, the critically acclaimed "Better Luck Tomorrow,” premiered at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival, garnering a nomination for the Grand Jury Prize. At the 2004 Independent Spirit Awards, "Better Luck Tomorrow,” which he co-wrote, co-produced and edited, was honored with a John Cassavetes Award nomination. The film went on to make box-office history as the highest-grossing (per-screen average) opening-weekend film for Paramount Classics/MTV Films when it was released in April 2003. Renowned film critics, including Ebert and Roeper, listed "Better Luck Tomorrow” as one of the top five films of the year.

Justin Lin's second solo feature is ANNAPOLIS. He is currently in production for Universal on the third installment of the "Fast and the Furious” franchise to be released in June 2006. He is also attached to direct "Strangers,” which Vertigo Entertainment is producing for Focus Features, as well as the Vertigo Entertainment/Universal Pictures' film "Oldboy,” a remake of a Korean-language action thriller. In addition, he is independently developing "Crickets,” a bittersweet drama, as his next feature film.

Born in Taipei, Taiwan and raised in Southern California, Lin was recently named one of Variety's "Top 10 Filmmakers to Watch.” In July 2003, Lin was named the "It Auteur” on Entertainment Weekly's annual "It List,” citing the 100 Most Creative People in the entertainment industry. He holds a B.A. and M.F.A. in film directing from the UCLA School of Film and Television, where he began writing, directing and producing numerous award-winning short films.

Early in his career, Lin served as the Production Coordinator of the Media Arts Center for the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles. During his tenure there, he created several educational television pilots and documentaries, such as "Passing Through,” which was featured on PBS. His multimedia projects at the Japanese American National Museum include "J-Town Rhapsody,” an eight-screen video installation, which received several awards, including the Crystal Communicator Award of Excellence.

More recently, Justin Lin established Trailing Johnson Productions, his own production company, which has already completed "Spotlighting,” a documentary about a long-running Las Vegas lounge act that is soon to be broadcast on national television. Trailing Johnson Productions is presently in the midst of developing several new film and television projects, including "Finishing the Game,” a satirical feature set in the recent past.
