On Sunday, Fast & Furious star Vin Diesel announced on his Facebook page that the new release date for Fast 7 will be April 10th, 2015, following the tragic death of star Paul Walker back in November.
Fast 7 was originally slated for a Summer 2014 release date. Due to the sudden passing of Paul Walker, the movie was put on hold, but director James Wan confirmed it was not cancelled. The film will reportedly include the late actor, but to which extent has yet to be determined.
Vin Diesel posted the following message on his Facebook page, along with the above photo of him and his late friend and co-star:
“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!
P.s. He’d want you to know first… “
Fast & Furious 7 is set to hit theaters April 10th, 2015, directed by James Wan and starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Paul Walker, and Jason Statham.
