It has been a month since actor Paul Walker passed away in a tragic car crash. A fellow actor has revealed that after stalling the production of "Fast & the Furious 7" for a month now, the production will continue in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates at the onset of 2014.

According to the, Tyrese Gibson said, "Right at the top of the year, we'll be in Dubai for Fast 7 and filming will start by next month. At this point, it's all about being inspired by Paul. I mean he started the franchise, literally, one of my best friends ever, man."

Regarding his love for late friend and actor, Gibson further said, "Sometimes I find it hard to enjoy life because he's not here, but me knowing him, he would want us to keep smiling, keep having fun. I've never seen him cry, I've never seen him sad. I've known him for 13 years, so you know, we gotta keep rocking. And we gotta keep this franchise alive. At this point, because it's a multicultural film that has [had an impact] around the world, I know he would want us to continue doing this on his behalf."

Universal Studios has already announced that the film will be release in April 2015 and Paul Walker's scenes will be very well a part of the film. Before his death, Paul Walker shot some scenes for "Fast & the Furious 7" and as a tribute to the late actor the makers want to keep his scenes in the film.

It has been rumored that Cody Walker will be replacing Paul Walker in the film as he has a close resemblance to his brother. 

According to statistics, "Fast and the Furious" is one of the most profitable ventures of Universal Studios and it has made almost $2.4 billion worldwide since 2001. "Fast & the Furious 6," made $789 million and the makers of the film expect that "Fast & the Furious 7" will do similar or more profit.

We hope that "Fast & the Furious 7" proves to be a smash hit and breaks records of the previous version of the franchise.
