After a delay caused by the sad, untimely death of star Paul Walker, the seventh movie in the “Fast and Furious” franchise has launched.
“Furious 7” filmed largely in Atlanta.
The movie stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Sung Kang, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Luke Evans, Gina Carano, John Ortiz, Gal Gadot and Elsa Pataky.
Things were put on hiatus temporarily when Walker died in a Los Angeles car crash while the movie was mid production. Ultimately Walker’s brothers, Cody and Caleb, signed on to portray their brother in some scenes to complete the filming.
“Our family is big and strong but it won’t ever quite be whole again without Paul,” a message on the film’s official Facebook page read. “All of us — those who’ve been here from the start and those whose first FAST film is 7 — wanted to create a special film for him and for you. We believe we have.”
