‘Fast And Furious 7’ To Be Released In 2015, Paul Walker Still In Film


After weeks of rumor and conversation, Vin Diesel took to Facebook over the weekend to inform fans about the fate of Fast And Furious 7.

In an open letter to fans, which included a photo of Vin and recently deceased co-star Paul Walker together on set, Diesel revealed Fast and Furious 7 will now be released on April 10, 2015. He also added that Walker would want fans to know this news first, which is why Vin spoke up before a press release was created. You can read the letter below:


“The last scene we filmed together…

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…”

Speaking of Fast 7, The Hollywood Reporter recently revealed that inside sources have told them Paul Walker will appear in the film. Director James Wan and writer Chris Morgan are allegedly working on ways to write his character out of the story using the footage that was filmed prior to the star’s death in late November. This is somewhat different than news from The Daily Mail, which claimed Paul Walker’s brother (a stuntman) could take his place to assist in filming any additional sequences needed to finish the story of Walker’s character (Brian). Paul’s face and body could be digitally added to the sequences as needed.

How do you think Paul Walker’s role in Fast 7 should be handled? Comment below and let us know your thoughts.
