The tragic events of Paul Walker’s death are nothing new to Hollywood. There have been numerous films that were in production which their stars taken all too soon. At the time of Walker’s death Universal Studios was on holiday hiatus on production of Fast and the Furious 7. The cast was scheduled to return to Atlanta to resume production, now they are on hold until later this week.
Since the film was already on a quick shooting schedule, to meet the film’s July 2014 release date, “Insiders say a large part of the film had been shot, although in January, Walker and the rest of the Fast 7team were scheduled to travel to Abu Dhabi to film additional scenes”.
Yet the Hollywood Reporter did learn that “The studio declined to comment on the future of Fast 7”.
Walker does have two other films waiting for release: a Hurricane Katrina drama Hours, due out in December, and Brick Mansions, now in postproduction. Brick Mansions, which is an English-language remake of the 2004 French action movie District B13.
What do you think Maniacs? It really all does depend on how much of Walker’s footage was finished.
