Paul Walker Post-Death Updates: 'Fast And Furious 7' Shooting Resumes, Confirmed By Tyrese Gibson

By on

"Fast & Furious 7" filming has been finally resumed. The stars of the film have headed back to the sets in Atlanta after a long hiatus. The production of the film was shut down on Nov. 30 due to Paul Walker's sudden passing away in a car accident. 

Walker died when his car hit an electric pole causing the cat to burst into flames. This had happened while Paul was coming from a charity event.  Walker's death had come as a shock to his co-stars especially to Tyrese Gibson who was like a brother to him.

"This is the only movie I ever worked on where we are all real close even after the movie is over," says Tyrese Gibson to TooFab of the Fast & Furious crew (via USWeekly), adding," It wasn't just losing a costar, he was family for real. That's why it took so long to recover."

Gibson even said that Paul Walker's death has changed him as a person and he wishes that no one gets hurt during the shoot of the film.

"God's grace is all we have," said Gibson, adding,  "Before we start filming we are going to have a strong prayer. That will be the start, before we film anything. That's what is needed for us to do Fast & Furious 7."

Meanwhile, Vin Diesel took to Facebook to express his motivation to make "Fast And Furious 7" one of the best in the series.

"The transition into that Dom state of mind has always been an interesting one. Only this time there is added purpose, a collective goal to make this [movie] the best one in the series."

Diesel even shared of photo of himself with Walker and captioned it as: "We are going back in this month, Pablo...I know you are with me."

"Fast and Furious 7" script is apparently being rewritten. However, there is no revelation regarding Paul Walker's character in the film. It has been speculated that his character will retire in the film. The film will be hitting theaters on April 9, 2015.
