Paul Walker Scenes To Remain In '€˜Fast & Furious 7'


Paul Walker had been in the midst of filming Fast and Furious 7 when he tragically died in a fiery car crash last month. Universal has recently announced that they’ll be keeping Walker’s scenes in the film, which is now due in theaters in Spring of 2015.

Paul Walker 'Fast & Furious' Scenes To Stay In Film

When Walker died on Nov. 30, some speculated about how the car racing franchise would move forward with the movie that was currently in production. In fact, upon the actor’s death, production was indefinitely shut down and the projected release date was voided. Not only was Walker a pivotal part of the franchise, but also a great friend to the cast and crew.

The studio put some of the speculation to rest over the weekend in an official statement: “Continuing the global exploits in the franchise built on speed, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead the returning cast of Fast and Furious 7, which will be released by Universal Pictures on April 10, 2015. James Wan directs this chapter of the hugely successful series, and Neal H. Moritz and Vin Diesel return as producers.”

Vin Diesel Confirms New Release Date

Fast and Furious star Vin Diesel also shared the new release date on his official Facebook page, where he included a picture of the last scene he filmed with Walker.

Production had been about halfway done on Fast & Furious 7. It’s unknown whether the other half of the script will be rewritten to exclude Walker, or if CGI or a double – such as Walker’s younger brother Cody Walker – will be used to complete the script as written or edited.
