Universal Suspends Filming Fast & Furious 7 In Wake Of Paul Walker’s Death

With Paul Walker’s death, Universal Pictures said Wednesday it’s suspending production on The Fast & Furious 7 “for a period of time so we can assess all options available to move forward with the franchise.”

The filming of the seventh chapter in the $2 billion franchise began this past Sept., and was on Thanksgiving break when Walker and his pal Roger Rodas perished in a fiery crash in Santa Clarita, Calif. Saturday.
