Vin Diesel has confirmed that Fast & Furious 7 will be released on April 10th, 2015. The movie was originally set for release in July, 2014, but its fate was in question after the death of star Paul Walker. Diesel — who will produce and star in the film — used Facebook to announce the date, posting it alongside a picture of the last scene he and Walker filmed together with the comment "P.s. He'd want you to know first..."

Sources had originally suggested Universal Studios would continue with production on the seventh Fast & Furious film after Walker's death in a car accident. Shortly afterwards, the studio said it would be shutting production down to "assess all options available." A week later, The Hollywood Reporter said production was back on, with work to continue in January using a rewritten script that would give Walker an "honorable" send-off.
