Abu Dhabi’s twofour54 media group said Wednesday that the cast of Universal’s Fast & Furious 7 will resume production of the movie there next month. They were reportedly days away from heading to the United Arab Emirates capital in December when co-star Paul Walker was killed in an auto accident, necessitating a suspension of the production and an overhaul of the script. Daily Variety reported today (Thursday) that the script has been “radically written,” but it added that “it has not been revealed whether Walker’s character will be “retired” or killed off, or how this highly sensitive matter will be handled.” Some location filming not involving the cast had already been underway in Abu Dhabi since November when the suspension was announced. The film is now scheduled to be released on April 10, 2015.
