Universal Pictures confirmed that Fast & Furious 7 will star Paul Walker after writers have tried revising the script for the movies in the wake of the lead actor's death. 

Last night on Facebook, Vin Diesel attached a photo of the last scene he filmed with Paul Walker, saying, "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."

A Universal Pictures spokesperson confirmed that the film will now be released on April 10, 2015 -- that's a delay of nine months, due to a production halt to rework scenes that were already shot.
