Fast & Furious 7 Was A Really Rough Shoot, Here's Why
Even those who have only been vaguely keeping abreast of Fast & Furious 7’s development know that the project has traveled through troubled waters. Originally set to come out this past summer, the production had to deal with tragedy and loss that resulted in delayed schedules and massive script changes. So when director James Wan says that the movie has been the most difficult he’s ever worked on, it’s pretty easy to see where he’s coming from.

Vin Diesel Will Probably Drive This Badass Car In Fast & Furious 7
Of course, for most, Fast 7 will be an opportunity to say one last goodbye to the late Paul Walker. But as Diesel reminds us in this photo, shared courtesy of #TorettoTuesday, the franchise has always been – and always will be – about the cars as much as it is about the people.

How Fast & Furious 7 Will Be Directly Connected To Its Director's Past
When Justin Lin came aboard the Fast & Furious with Tokyo Drift, he pulled off something rather creative. By introducing Han, played by Sung Kang, into the series, the director managed to create a continuity connection between the car racing franchise and Lin’s directorial debut, the indie thriller Better Luck Tomorrow. It was such a fascinating and unique move that it got me wondering if Fast & Furious 7 helmer James Wan would be game to do something similar.

Fast & Furious 7 Just Got Fancier In The Form Of An Iggy Azalea Cameo
The Fast & Furious franchise is supposed to be fun. With fast cars, beautiful women, insane stunts and chaotic action, the movies are supposed to be fun escapes. Unfortunately, the death of co-lead actor Paul Walker flipped the script on Fast & Furious 7 and pushed the production into a much darker territory.

Fast & Furious 7 Gets An Earlier Release Date
April has historically been a good month for the Fast & Furious franchise. While most of the movies have come out in June, the two films in the series that came out in the fourth month of the year currently stand as two of the top three best box office performers. That in mind, it's no surprise that Universal Pictures is planning to go back to that well with the release of James Wan's Fast & Furious 7, but now they're going even earlier than originally anticipated.

Fast & Furious 7's Insurance Claim Will Be The Largest In Movie History
Since the passing of beloved actor Paul Walker, there has been a ton of talk and speculation about what Fast & Furious 7, which was in production when he died, would do to complete the film.

Paul Walker's Brothers Will Help James Wan Finish Fast & Furious 7
Wan is racing to meet an April 10, 2015 release date. I believe that Fast fans will give the sequel the benefit of the doubt when it comes to closing the loop that is Brian’s saga. I like the fact that they are using Walker’s brothers. There’s real symmetry in that.

'Fast And Furious' Theme Park Ride Coming To Universal Studios
Theme parks have a long history with tying into film and television properties, and if there is a king of such marketing practices, it’s obviously The Walt Disney Corporation. As of late, the park has aggressively developed attractions based on their original (and acquired) intellectual properties, and they haven’t been shy about it. This doesn’t sit well with long time, and now recently motivated rival Universal Studios and now there's news that they're doing something about it.

Fast & Furious 7 Will Use CGI, Body Doubles To Replace Paul Walker
Is it the best option? Absolutely not. But large commercial movies have to make complicated artistic decisions to protect their investments in the wake of tragedy. And the producers, according to the Daily News, think that Fast fans will accept the solution if it allows the sequel the chance to give Walker’s character (and the actor, himself) closure on screen.

Fast & Furious 7 Will Resume Production In April
Of all of those franchises, the Fast series is the one that stands to lose the most with the removal of Walker. He might not have brought the same heat as Vin Diesel or, obviously, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to each installment. But Walker was a solid foundation who has carried the series since day one, and moving ahead with new adventures that don’t showcase his talents will be strange.

Vin Diesel Confirms Kurt Russell Is In Fast & Furious 7
I really hope that this well-dressed first impression is nothing like Russell looks for the rest of the film. I truly want him to wear a suit made out of chainmail or knives or something. I know these movies aren’t so far out as The Expendables when it comes to ratcheting up the cheesiness, but it’s getting there, and I think Wan is the guy to blow the ceiling off.
