Fast & Furious 7 to Resume Production in April


Universal Pictures is getting ready to resume production on or near April 1 for Fast & Furious 7, says The Hollywood Reporter. The production has been on a long hiatus since the November 30 death of Paul Walker.

According to the trade, “the remainder of the shoot will last from six to eight weeks… Cast and crew will be called back to Atlanta, where filming had been scheduled to resume after Thanksgiving.” Filming was about halfway finished when Walker died.

Starring Vin Diesel, Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Tyrese Gibson, Tony Jaa, Kurt Russell, Nathalie Emmanuel, Djimon Hounsou, Lucas Black and John Brotherton, the James Wan-directed seventh installment will hit theaters on April 10, 2015.
