4/10/15 for FF7. Three weeks after the shocking car accident death of Paul Walker, his friend and costar Vin Diesel unveiled the new release date for Fast and Furious 7 via Facebook. Sharing an on-set photo ("the last scene we filmed together"), Diesel wrote to his followers, "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 . . . "
The action superstar continued: "Fast and Furious 7 will be released . . .April 10th 2015! P.s. He'd want you to know first . . ."
Walker and his costars had been in the midst of filming the latest installment of the mega-franchise when, following a charity event, he and friend Roger Rodas were killed in a fiery car crash Nov. 30 in Santa Clarita, Calif.
Production on Fast and Furious 7, originally slated for a July 11, 2014 release, had been put on indefinite hold earlier this month as cast, crew and fans reeled from Walker's untimely passing.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Walker will indeed appear in the latest sequel — using footage shot before he died — but no other details were available.
