It’s been almost a month since that Paul Walker and Roger Rodas tragically lost their lives , and while pangs of sadness remains in a lot of us, we can’t even begin to imagine how those people close to Walker are coming to grips with his death.
Fast & Furious co-star and real-life buddy, Vin Diesel, seems to be doing as good a job as you can expect, given the circumstances. Just a few hours ago, Diesel took to his Facebook page to share a photo of him and Walker in one of the climactic scenes of Fast & Furious 6, describing the moment as one that had a "unique sense of completion, of pride we shared… in the film we were now completing… the magic captured… and, in just how far we’ve come…"
But the real important news that Diesel announced was the movie’s new release date, which he said is going to be April 10, 2015.
The movie was initially scheduled to be released in July next year, but Walker’s death pushed the production back with questions on who is going to continue his scenes. Rumors have spread that his brother, Cody, will be hired to do the job , and there probably won’t be a better choice given the similarities the two brothers have with each other.
So yea, April 10, 2015 is the new release date of Fast & Furious 7, according to Diesel. Circle the date on your calendars, fellas.
