Fast And Furious 7 set for 2015

Paul Walker's final Fast And Furious film will be released in April 2015, nine months after its planned release.

The future of Fast And Furious 7 had been unclear following the actor's death in a car crash on November 30, with movie bosses putting production on hold. It had originally been scheduled for release on July 11, 2014.

But the franchise's star Vin Diesel announced the new release date on his Facebook, writing: " Fast and Furious 7 will be released... April 10th 2015!" adding: "P.s. He'd want you to know first..."

Following the actor's remarks, Universal Pictures made a formal announcement, hinting that Paul's character will remain a part of the movie. "Continuing the global exploits in the franchise built on speed, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead the returning cast of Fast And Furious 7..." the statement to Deadline.com read.

Vin, who will reprise his role as Dom Toretto in the upcoming film, also posted an image of himself with his late co-star.

"The last scene we filmed together..." the 46-year-old wrote.

"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..."

Production on the seventh instalment of the action-packed franchise began in September and although a large portion has been shot, it is still incomplete.

It is not yet clear how the movie will be adjusted as a result of Paul's unfinished performance.

Paul, who played Brian O'Connor in five of the six Fast And Furious movies, was killed when the Porsche Carrera GT he was a passenger in smashed into a lamppost and tree and burst into flames. The actor's friend and financial adviser, Roger Rodas, who was driving, also died. Authorities have said speed was a factor in the crash.
