“Fast & Furious 7” Delayed Until April 2015

NEW YORK (December 23, 2013) Universal Pictures is delaying the release of "Fast & Furious 7" for almost a year after the death of star Paul Walker.

The studio announced Monday that the "Fast & Furious" sequel will be released in April 2015, instead of July.

Shooting on the film was about halfway finished when Walker, 40, died in a car crash outside of Los Angeles.

Walker will still appear in the film, though Universal has not said exactly how it will handle his unfinished performance.

Co-star Vin Diesel first posted the news on Facebook, telling his fans that, "He'd want you to know first."

The franchise has been one of Universal's most lucrative, grossing almost $2.4 billion worldwide since 2001.

The last film, "Fast & Furious 6," made $789 million.
