'Fast and Furious 7' Gets New

Vin Diesel posted a photo of himself with the late Paul Walker on his Facebook fan page Sunday, announcing that “Fast and Furious 7″ would be released April 10, 2015. It had originally been set for July 11, 2014, but production was postponed after Walker’s death in a car crash Nov. 30.

Diesel’s Facebook post read:

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…

UPDATED: A statement from Universal about the change in release date suggested that Walker will still appear in the next installment of the “franchise built on speed.”
