The last time we checked in with “Fast and Furious 7” updates, production was set to continue back in February this year, with an anticipated released date set for April 10, 2015. The film is now planned to hit theaters a week earlier on April 3. The movie was delayed following the tragic death of Paul Walker on November 30, 2013. Walker’s untimely passing left the production team with some challenges with the movie halfway done and a script that requires reworks.
Walker’s Brother Cody was rumored to stand in for the remaining scenes to finish the seventh installment, but reports suggest that Walker’s character Brian O’Conner will be retired in the upcoming flick. The James Wan directed film stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, and Jason Statham among others.
Additional changes have been made due to “Fast 7” sliding up the schedule for next year. Horror franchise “Insidious” will unleash their third chapter on May 29, 2015, originally planned for April 3.
