Fast & Furious 7 to resume production this month after Paul Walker’s death
HOLLYWOOD: The Fast & Furious 7 movie was put on hold following the death of actor Paul Walker in a car accident in November 2013.However, Universal Studios is getting the production back on track and according to reports, shooting on Fast and Furious 7 is set to resume in April 2014.
Last year, cast and crew working on the movie were left devastated when Paul Walker and his friend, Roger Rodas, were killed in a fiery car crash.
Studio executives have now reassured fans that the movie will get back on track with filming to resume early in April, according to Hollywood Reporter. The shooting will take place in Atlanta and is scheduled to last about 6 to 8 weeks, and should see filming completed on the latest installment of the franchise.
Many fans have been wondering what moviemakers would do with Paul Walker's character Brian O'Connor – who is a former FBI agent-turned criminal.
Walker was mid-way through filming his scenes as Brian O’Conner when he died aged 40.
His character will reportedly be retired from the film franchise rather than killed off.
Fast & Furious 7 is scheduled for release on April 10, 2015.
