Fast & Furious 7 sets date for filming to resume

February 28th, 2014 by Marc Comments

After the death of Paul Walker at the end of 2013, filming on the latest Fast & Furious movie was dropped into freefall… and for a while it looked possible that the movie may never happen.

However, we were assured it would still be coming and now we have a date for filming to commence. According to darkhorizons, Fast Seven will recommence filming in early April: “The production was just over halfway complete when the shut down took place. Screenwriter Chris Morgan and director James Wan have since gone through the footage already shot and tweaked the script which allows for Paul Walker’s character Brian O’Connor to ‘retire’.

“The remainder of the shoot is scheduled to last between six and eight weeks in Atlanta and gives Wan a full year to complete the film. Previously reported locations that were scheduled to be used for filming like Dubai and Los Angeles are still unconfirmed.”

This is great news as we at FTN are (almost) all big fans of a the franchise that just gets better and better…

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….
