Fast and Furious 7 postponed indefinitely following Paul Walker’s death

December 4th, 2013 by Marc Comments

With the death of Paul Walker at the weekend, it was only to be expected that the next Fast and Furious movie would suffer set backs, especially with the news that several of the cast had said they wouldn’t be back anytime soon as they deal with the tragedy.

Well, it seems that, according to the New York Times, as expected, things are put on hold. According to the paper the movie, which started filming in September,was about halfway through filming with Walker still set to complete several crucial scenes at the time of his death. Now Universal and the cast and crew must come to terms with the loss and determine just how the movie, and franchise, should move forward.

It goes without saying that the original July 11, 2014 release is now looking very, very unlikely.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
