Production on this upcoming film
Fast and Furious 7 was originally intended to film back-to-back along with Fast 6 and was already confirmed even before Fast 6 aired. Development began before Fast 6 went into production and Diesel stated it would release in July 2014. Filming began for Fast 7 in September, though schedules were interupted however, when lead Paul Walker died on November 30th. Filming was delayed and continued in April. The production ended in July 2014, the original slated release date. Fast 7 is officially going to hit cinemas on April 3rd, 2015.
It was revealed that James Wan would replace Justin Lin and would direct the next trilogy. Following Walker's death, production was delayed and the budget increased due to amount of incomplete scenes needed for CGI and stunt doubles. The budget was estimated nearly $250 million. Several co-stars express their grief and sadness over Walker and losing a member of their 'family'. This film will be dedicated to the loving memory of the late, and great, Paul Walker.
