Following Paul Walker’s tragic death, Fast & Furious 7 Director James Wan has talked with Universal executives to discuss the future of the film.

Sources told Hollywood Reporter that while production is to be delayed, it won’t be scrapped. Fast 7 was already on a tight deadline to meet its July 11th release date, which looks likely to be missed now. The hard work now begins for the writers as they figure out the best way to move forward.

The circumstances of Walker’s death provide them with a challenge. For a series based around high speed, high-performance stunts, working out how to respectfully acknowledge the incident will be tough. It is complicated further by reports that a large part of the film has already been recorded.

While filming Fast 7, Walker was also doing promotional work for his film Hours, following a man’s struggle to provide for his newborn child in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The film was close to Walker’s heart, and its producer has confirmed that it will go ahead with its December 13th release date.

At the time of the crash, the Fast 7 crew were taking a break from filming for Thanksgiving. Their return this week has been put on hold as the cast and crew are naturally too devastated to work.
