'Fast & Furious 7' release date announced
Vin Diesel took to Facebook on Sunday to tell fans that Fast & Furious 7 will be released on April 10, 2015.
Diesel posted a photo of himself and the late Paul Walker in their final scene together. With it, these words:
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!
He added: P.s. He’d want you to know first...
Right, because aside from the entire Internet, who else is there to tell?
The film was originally set to be released on July 11, 2014, Entertainment Weekly reports, but production stalled after the death of Walker, who was killed on Nov. 30 in a car wreck in Southern California.
“At this time we feel it is our responsibility to shut down production on Fast & Furious 7 for a period of time so we can assess all options available to move forward with the franchise,” a rep said on Dec. 4.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, changes were made to the movie’s script after Walker’s death. He will be retired from the series using scenes he already had filmed.
