Paul Walker Vin Diesel Fast and Furious 7 Set

Fast and Furious 7 will be released in 2015 with Paul Walker. The major questions surrounding the delayed production and release of the seventh The Fast and the Furious movie after the death of Paul Walker have been cleared up. Universal Pictures will release the car crime film on April 10, 2015, nearly a year from its original release date of July 11, 2014. The other major news regarding the film is that Paul Walker’s scenes will not be cut from the film or his part in it marginalized. Paul Walker’s character will remain a central character in the film. How that will be handled with half of his scenes unfilmed and his story arc uncompleted are anyone’s guess.

Universal Pictures had this to say about Paul Walker’s place in Fast and Furious 7:

Continuing the global exploits in the franchise built on speed, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead the returning cast of Fast & Furious 7
