The real-life death of Paul Walker has taken a serious toll on the upcoming Fast & Furious 7 with talks of Universal Pictures possibly canceling the sequel. With the actor only filming half of his scenes, it only makes sense. Though according to THR, screenwriter Chris Morgan looks to be revising the script to reflect scenes Walker already shot. If that’s the case, then we could see Fast 7 back in production as of January.
THR also reports the film won’t be able to meet its original July 11, 2014 release date, which seems evident since other film studios like Fox recently moved up its summer blockbuster, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, to fill in that slot.
At least Universal is working on getting the film off the ground, however, it will need to make some serious adjustments to ensure the project’s high quality. Kinda hard when the series loses one of its leading characters.
