‘Fast and Furious 7′ to resume shooting in April

- February 27th, 2014

After a lengthy delay following the death of Paul Walker, Fast & Furious 7 is getting ready to resume shooting.

Sources are telling The Hollywood Reporter that the sequel will restart production in April. Walker had only completed approximately half his scenes when he was killed in a car crash outside of Los Angeles on Nov. 30. Production was immediately shut down and screenwriter Chris Morgan and director James Wan were forced to rework the storyline to retire Walker’s Brian O’Connor character from the series.

O’Connor will not be killed in the film and the series is expected to continue with Fast 8, 9 and 10.

In a recent interview with IGN, Kurt Russell talked about his role in Fast 7, which was supposed to expand in the eighth instalment.

“That’s going to be interesting,” Russell said when he was asked if his character would be back for Fast 8. “Because the character has been purposely been treated in a certain way so that he can or can’t. The ‘can’ will be an interesting stretch. It works, because I understand what it is and we came up with it. It’s like, ‘Oh, wow! That’s cool!’ If he doesn’t, then he doesn’t. If he gets killed, he gets killed. That will be for them to determine. I just wanted to be able to work with them making the best possible character to either be sad he doesn’t move on or say, ‘Yeah, I want this character to move on — we need this character to move on.’ That sort of thing. I don’t know what the situation, with Paul dying, does to that. I don’t know.”

And Walker’s Fast co-star Vin Diesel posted a video on his Facebook page Wednesday night showing him playing a video game with a friend who he hints could be the late Paul Walker. Diesel has been sharing photos and video of the late star on the social media site for the past several months.

Fast & Furious 7 opens April 10, 2015.
