We’ve been wondering what would happen to Fast 7 after the tragic death of star Paul Walker and today we got an answer. According to Vin Diesel, the production will eventually resume and the release date has been pushed back to April 10, 2015.

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!

P.s. He’d want you to know first…

The Hollywood Reporter has stated that the movie is going through rewrites at the moment in order to retire Paul Walker’s character of Brian O’Connor for good.

This doesn’t mean that his character will be killed off, rather it sounds like Walker’s character will be retired in a kinder way using existing footage that Walker has already shot. Killing off Walker’s character is too real and would be a terrible look for the franchise. But it sounds like they want to be respectful of the situation and character retirement is going to be the route, and an appropriate one at that.

We won’t find out what send off the character gets until 2015 but James Wan and writer Chris Morgan are taking their time to pick the right way to do it.
