New York - Universal Pictures has delayed the release of Fast & Furious 7 for almost a year following the death of star Paul Walker.
The studio announced on Monday that the Fast & Furious sequel will be released in April 2015, instead of July. Shooting on the film was about halfway finished when the 40-year-old Walker died in a car crash outside of Los Angeles.
Walker will still appear in the film, though Universal has not said exactly how it will handle his unfinished performance.
Co-star Vin Diesel first posted the news on Facebook, telling his fans that, “He'd want you to know first.”
The franchise has been one of Universal's most lucrative, grossing almost $2.4 billion worldwide since 2001. The last film, Fast & Furious 6, made $789 million. - Sapa-AP
