Movie will release in 2015
The Fast and Furious franchise of movies has been incredibly popular since the franchise began years ago. Fans of the franchise were dealt a blow when Paul Walker died in a car crash late last year. The death of Walker left the fate of the seventh movie in the franchise in question.
Walker had reportedly filmed about half his scenes for the movie when he died. Production on the film was suspended while the studio tried to figure out what to do with the movie. Word has now surfaced that Fast and Furious 7 will resume shooting in Abu Dhabi in April according to Variety.
The Abu Dhabi Film commission and Universal pictures announced that James Wan and actor/producer Vin Diesel, as well as stars Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, will join the crew in Abu Dhabi to continue production.
The film went into production in Abu Dhabi in November 2013, but was halted after Walkers death only a few months later. The film had boringly been planned to release in July of 2014.
With Walker's untimely demise, the script for the film had to be rewritten. It's unclear how Walker's character will be written out of the film. Walker has been a central part of the film series from the start. The new release date is April 10, 2015.
