has confirmed that Fast & Furious 7
, originally set for release in July, 2014, will now be released on April 10th, 2015. This update comes straight from Diesel’s Facebook page
, where actor also revealed his last shot with the late Paul Walker
, and also commented: P.S. He’d want you to know first
We previously learned that Universal Pictures had shut down production for a period of time, and that screenwriter Chris Morgan
will be doing revisions that Universal executives hope can retire Walker’s character from the series using scenes already shot.
Also, we had a chance to hear some rumors that the studio is considering using Walker’s younger brother Cody Walker
to fill in for the late actor when shooting begins. Nothing official about that, though.
