Just in time as action stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Tony Jaa are seen taking photos with director James Wan and the cast and crew of Fast And Furious 7 upon wrapping their scenes, April 3, 2015 is the new date Universal Pictures is announcing for the film’s release. The announcement marks the third change in dates since the film, which also features lead actor Vin Diesel, shifted its original July 11, 2014 date to April 10, 2015 last December, following the off-set accidental death of lead actor Paul Walker last November.
Many of the cast members have already wrapped their scenes, including co-stars Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges and Tyrese Gibson just a few weeks ago. There’s no official word yet on how the film will transition into its new trilogy regarding the script changes that were required since the film’s temporary hiatus in January, although recent months have revealed some coverage pertaining to the addition of one of the brothers of the late actor for additional films in the franchise; Both brothers, Caleb and Cody Walker, stood in earlier this year with two other body doubles to finish Paul‘s scenes for a proper send-off of the iconic character, “Bryan O’Connor”, with post-production to include a digital rendering of Paul’s face and voice.
Aside from movies, Paul Walker was also best known for his acquatic research, as well as philanthropic and charitable work as co-founder of the non-profit organization Reach Out Worldwide back in 2010, engaging in disaster relief efforts around the world. A portion of the proceeds of his film sales go directly to ROWW in honor of his memory.
