The message said that they had made it. The final scene in the direction and production of Fast & Furious had been shot and so in away the movie was complete.
Thanks went to all the fans that had supported the franchise. It was due to their unstinted camaraderie and great cheering on that the whole scheme had seen the light of day.
"Today we completed the last shot in the production of FAST & FURIOUS 7. We wanted to take this moment to express how thankful we are for your support. We felt the love and strength from our fans throughout this journey, and it’s because of you that we got here," reads the post on Fast & Furious Facebook page.
The movie series had had a leader from the start in the form of Vin Diesel. And although they all missed a vital element in the form of the late Paul Walker, he would have wished them to go on and finish Fast & Furious 7.
"There was a time when we didn’t know how we could go on, or even if we should. But we listened to you, and you inspired us not only to keep going but to try and make the best FAST & FURIOUS movie yet," states the post.
Vin Diesel is living testimony to the fact that it was very, very difficult to complete the movie without Paul Walker. That he had died was something that not many could get over.
Fast & Furious series started 15 years ago with Vin as leader of the FAST family. Vin decides what’s right for FAST through his gut and heart.
Vin, Michelle, Jordana, producer Neal and off course Paul was a part of the Fast Family from the very beginning. The first Fast & Furious movie was shot in LA and now the Fast & Furious 7 has also been shot in LA and "it was an especially emotional homecoming for those who’ve grown up with each other since that first shoot," says the FAST family in Facebook post.
Dwayne, Tyrese, Luda, Lucas and the FAST writer Chris are just like brothers to each other. Jason, Kurt, Djimon, Nathalie and Fast 7 director James are the new additions for 7th sequel along with Paul Walker's brothers Caleb and Cody, who joined Fast family "to honor their brother and help complete his work" in remaining part of Fast 7.
Paul Walker was such a lovable guy and his presence was dearly missed on set. But things had to go on since time stops for no man. And so the crew gathered all their things and started acting impromptu and soon everything was back to normal.
The movie is a living testimony to the fact that Paul Walker still lives on in the hearts and minds of so many. He was a hero and an extremely competent actor.
The A-list celebrity, Paul Walker never for a single second shirked the work he had to do towards making Fast & Furious 7. It is a great tragedy that he died before he could complete the movie.
Yet his spirit lives on in the form of millions of fans who sent their messages of love and adoration for Paul on Facebook. They are proof if any is needed that Paul is larger than life and he was not just a hero but a superhero that was the star attraction of the franchise.
Without him things will just not be the same no matter what. Maybe he is still seeing all this going on from heaven above and smiling in a relaxed manner.
After the completion of shooting Fast & Furious 7, the post-production of the film begins. And the movie will be released worldwide on April 3, 2015. This will be the last movie of Paul Walker. The countdown begins for the Paul and Fast fans.
