Fast & Furious 7 to go ahead as planned
PAUL Walker's final Fast & Furious film remains on course for a cinema release, despite the death of its 40-year-old star in a road accident on Saturday.
According to the guardian.com, that production on Fast & Furious 7 would be delayed, with the shoot in Atlanta unlikely to resume until tomorrow at the earliest. There were no plans to abandon the film, for which Walker had shot the majority of his scenes. However, the cast were due to travel to Abu Dhabi in January for an additional shoot and the movie was likely to be delayed beyond its planned July 2014 release date.
The Atlanta shoot had been on hold for the Thanksgiving holiday. Walker, who played Brian O'Conner in the Fast & Furious films, had returned to southern California during the hiatus. He died on Saturday afternoon when the limited-edition Porsche he was travelling in crashed and burst into flames in Valencia, Santa Clarita. The driver of the vehicle has been identified as financial advisor and fellow car enthusiast Roger Rodas, CEO of Walker's company Always Evolving.
