Producers put the movie on hold after Paul Walker’s tragic death last month, but now “Fast and Furious 7” has a release date.
Vin Diesel posted on his Facebook page Sunday that the movie will be released April 10, 2015.
The star also posted the last scene he and Paul filmed together for Fast and Furious 7.
Vin Disel wrote, “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”.
“Fast and Furious 7” was originally scheduled for release in July of 2014, but production was stopped after Paul’s death.
The 40-year-old actor was killed November 30 in a car crash after his friend, Roger Rodas, lost control of a Porsche GT which smashed into a pole and a tree in Valencia, California.
Investigators are now focusing on the car’s speed at the time of the crash. A law enforcement source said, “We’re looking at speed and speed alone”.
Accident investigators have found no evidence that the Porsche carrying the actor had mechanical problems before it crashed. They also ruled out debris or other roadway conditions as causing the car to slam into a light pole and tree.
CNN reports, “Investigators from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will meet with engineers from Porsche next month to analyze the data retrieval system. That system could shed light on the car’s speed, throttle opening, air bag deployment, seat belt use and possibly other information from the time of the crash.”
The car, a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, is notoriously hard to handle.
