Production has wrapped on the set of Fast and Furious 7. The film's director, James Wan, and the production team released an official statement in lue of the anticipated April 3, 2015 release date. After production delay and script changes due to the untimely and tragic passing of Paul Walker, the Fast and Furious 7 team acknowledged fans as the inspiration for this installment.
"We wanted to take this moment to express how thankful we are for your support. We felt the love and strength from our fans throughout this journey, and it's because of you that we got here.
There was a time when we didn't know how we could go on, or even if we should. But we listened to you, and you inspired us not only to keep going but to try and make the best FAST & FURIOUS movie yet." - The Fast and Furious Family
Filming for the project was postponed by the studio to allow the cast, production team, friends and family to grieve for Paul Walker. However, production resumed in April 2014 to continue the Fast and Furious legacy and pay tribute to Walker. Despite much speculation, Paul Walker's brothers join the team to finish their brother's work with Vin Diesel at the helm.
"Our FAST family has been together for almost fifteen years now and has grown a lot in that time. From the start, Vin has been our leader who feels what's right for FAST in his gut and in his heart. When we had to stop production last year, Vin gathered us back together and moved us forward when we needed it most. He led us to this day.
Some of us have been here from the very beginning. Vin, Michelle, Jordana and our producer Neal all go back to that first little movie we shot on the streets of LA. We came back to LA in FAST 7, and it was an especially emotional homecoming for those who've grown up with each other since that first shoot.
There are those we count as brothers who we gathered along the way and are with us again: Dwayne, Tyrese, Luda, Lucas and our writer, Chris. We've got some new additions this time in Jason, Kurt, Djimon, Nathalie and our director, James. Caleb and Cody joined us to honor their brother and help complete his work." - The Fast and Furious Family
Fans can start the countdown to April 2015 to see if Ian Shaw (Jason Statham) is successful in his attempt to exact revenge on Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) the death of his brother.However, the cast and production team acknowledge nothing has been quite the same without beloved Paul Walker.
"Our family is big and strong but it won't ever quite be whole again without Paul. All of us - those who've been here from the start and those whose first FAST film is 7 - wanted to create a special film for him and for you. We believe we have.
Thank you for being there for us. You are the biggest part of our family, and we couldn't have gotten here without you. The countdown to April 3 begins.
Your FAST & FURIOUS Family"
