In the wake of Paul Walker’s shocking death over the weekend, producers on the star’s forthcoming projects have been forced to make tough decisions.
Walker was filming “Fast & Furious 7” before the car crash that took his life, though the film had taken a short hiatus for the Thanksgiving holiday.
According to “The Hollywood Reporter,” Universal has decided that production will move forward after a delay, and the “Fast 7” is still expected to hit theaters on July 11, 2014.
Even sooner, however, is the release of Walker’s Hurricane Katrina drama, “Hours.” The Pantelion Films-Lionsgate film was due out in limited release and video on demand on December 13, and the release will go ahead as scheduled.
“After lots of back and forth, this is our decision. It’s Paul’s tour de force. He’s in every frame of the movie,” Pantelion’s CEO told “THR,” adding, “Paul would have very much wanted us to move forward. He was incredibly proud of this project.”
