Justin Lin ("Fast Five") is slated to direct the crime thriller "Times Square" for Focus Features, Chernin Entertainment, Perfect Storm Entertainment and Far Hills Pictures.

Taylor Materne & Jacob Rubin penned the Black List script set in the last days of pre-gentrified Times Square.

A young man must choose between a neighbourhood crime boss that raised him, and a grizzled ex-cop who swore to protect him.

Lin and Troy Craig Poon are producing.
