Fast & Furious 7 will resume filming in April, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Filming was halted in November following the tragic death of Paul Walker.
Sources say Universal will restart production on the action franchise on or near April 1, giving the studio and director James Wan almost one year until the film is due to hit theaters April 10, 2015. The remainder of the shoot will last from six to eight weeks, according to insiders. Cast and crew will be called back to Atlanta, where filming had been scheduled to resume after Thanksgiving.
They were halfway through filming when Walker was killed in a car accident in Valencia, Calif. on November 30. According to THR, insiders have said that they believe Walker’s character can be “retired” instead of killed off, which could allow the franchise to continue.
