Fast & Furious 7 Release Date, Vin Diesel & Cast Writes Heartfelt Letter about Paul Walker to Fans, Read Here [PICTURE]
Fast and Furious 7 has finished filming and the cast and crew decided to post a message to the fans sharing their journey through finishing the movie after the death of their co-star and friend, Paul Walker. You can read the full message below.
The cast is still dealing with mixed emotions about finishing the movie series without co-star Paul Walker who tragically died late last year. Diesel and the rest of the cast have been having difficult time handling emotional set and are still feeling pain over Paul loss. The team had to work with doubles and using facial-replacement technology for the remainder of Walker's scenes. Walker's two brothers, Caleb and Cody, have been added to the Fast family as stand-ins for Walker to complete remaining action scenes.
Walker died on Nov. 30 in Santa Clarita, Southern California in a tragic car accident while the cast and crew were on a hiatus period. His shocking death has sent shockwaves through Hollywood. He was 40 years old.
Fast and Furious 7 is scheduled to hit theaters on April 3, 2015.
"The saga continues on April 3. #FF7" they tweeted with the picture above.
Here is the full Message from the Fast and Furious 7 Cast and Crew:
"Today we completed the last shot in the production of FAST & FURIOUS 7.
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.
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.
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"
