Nearly three months after the tragic death of actor Paul Walker, it has been revealed that FAST AND FURIOUS 7 is ready to continue production. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal Pictures and director James Wan will resume shooting on the sequel this April in Atlanta, Georgia.

The remainder of the shoot will last from six to eight weeks, according to THR's sources. That's a significant amount of shooting time, but the film has a year before it hits theaters.

Work on FAST AND FURIOUS 7 was approximately halfway completed when Walker died in a car crash on November 30th. The film's original release date of July 11, 2014 had to be cancelled so that the producers and writer Chris Morgan could figure out their next move. It has been said that Walker's character, Brian O'Connor, will be "retired" and not killed off, but neither Universal nor Wan have officially commented on the matter.

FAST AND FURIOUS 7 will open April 10, 2015.

Chris Morgan actually commented on the matter.

He said, albeit almost right after that original article, that they hadn't made that decision yet.

Retiring the character just doesn't work...given what we know of this guy. He's a guy who takes a car...and jumps right in to a moving boat...he'll jump off a cliff in a car...he'll go in to a country where he's wanted...and then in to a jail where some of the current occupants were put there because of him - he'll then beat the crap out two heavy wait gangsters in a small prison cell like the badass he's been from the first movie. Retiring does not work for this guy. The character would
Retiring the character just doesn't work...given what we know of this guy. He's a guy who takes a car...and jumps right in to a moving boat...he'll jump off a cliff in a car...he'll go in to a country where he's wanted...and then in to a jail where some of the current occupants were put there because of him - he'll then beat the crap out two heavy wait gangsters in a small prison cell like the badass he's been from the first movie. Retiring does not work for this guy. The character would fight till he can fight no more which in this case means death. It's very tragic what happened to Paul Walker but I would imagine he'd be okay with that resolution and it is the one that makes the most sense from a story point of view....especially when we know there’s a ruthless villain looking to take out each member of his team. Incidentally, what are the chances that Walker's character was going to be killed off in this movie from the beginning.... but they never got to filming that scene?

Is there a chance Hollywood Reporter's alleged sources are wrong about retiring? I know it's a legit trade, but where do they get off reporting such a crucial plot development when it doesn't come from an actual statement from the studio or filmmakers?
