Fast & Furious 7 will be released in 2015 after studio executives put production on hiatus following Paul Walker’s death last month, Vin Diesel confirmed.
Paul Walker died in a fiery car crash in California on November 30, a day before he and his castmates were scheduled to resume filming in Atlanta, Georgia.
Executives at Universal Studios closed work on Fast & Furious 7 while the cast and crew were in mourning, and producers came up with a plan on how to resume filming without the franchise’s main star.
Vin Diesel has reached out to fans on Facebook to reveal the movie will hit cinemas in April 2015, almost a year after its planned release date of July 2014.
The actor wrote: “There was a unique sense of completion, of pride we shared… in the film we were now completing … the magic captured… and, in just how far we’ve come…Fast and Furious 7 will be released April 10th 2015! P.s. He’d want you to know first.”
Vin Diesel also shared a photo of the last scene he and Paul Walker filmed together.
