Universal has confirmed it won't cut Paul Walker from 'Fast & Furious 7'. The studio also confirmed it will now release the film on April 10, 2015.

Paul Walker will remain in 'Fast & Furious 7'.

The late actor, who died in a fiery car crash in November 30, won't be edited out of the film, Universal Pictures has confirmed.

Walker and co-star Vin Diesel will "lead the cast" of the seventh movie, which will now be released on April 10, 2015, after production was postponed following Walker's death.

Universal said in a statement: "Continuing the global exploits in the franchise built on speed, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead the returning cast of 'Fast & Furious 7', which will be released by Universal Pictures on April 10, 2015. James Wan directs this chapter of the hugely successful series, and Neal H. Moritz and Vin Diesel return as producers."

The studio previously abandoned its July 2014 release date after Walker died in a tragic car crash in Santa Clarita, California, along with his friend Roger Rodas last month.

Diesel also shared the news on his Facebook page, posting a picture of himself and Walker filming the upcoming instalment.

He wrote: "The last scene we filmed together...There was 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... Fast and Furious 7 will be released... April 10th 2015! P.s. He'd want you to know first... (sic)"

Fast & Furious 7

  • 3 stars
  • 2015
  • US
  • 140 min

  • Written by: Chris Morgan
  • Cast: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Lucas Black, Jason Statham

Deckard (Statham) is a Special Forces assassin determined to get revenge on the team after his brother has been left in a coma. With the shark rapidly receding in the wake of the franchise's waterskis, the latest instalment is insane but has a puppyish desperation to please, and doesn't take itself too seriously.
