When news broke that Paul Walker had died tragically in a car accident on Saturday, thoughts and prayers immediately flew to his family and close friends. But, of course, there is a practical side of things, even death, and upon hearing about his tragic passing many immediately wondered what would happen to "Fast & Furious 7," the next installment of his high-grossing, high-octane franchise.
The follow-up to this summer's blockbuster sequel had begun filming in early fall, with production well under way as the cast and crew raced toward the summer 2014 release date. While major questions still linger, like what will happen to Walker's character, Brian O'Conner, and whether or not he can feasibly be written out of the movie (as well as subsequent films), The Hollywood Reporter notes that a big powwow was convened on Sunday at the behest of Universal pictures to figure out how much of the movie could »

The death of actor Paul Walker on Saturday leaves a major hole in Universal’s “Fast and Furious” series, the studio’s most successful active film franchise, which had been in production on its seventh installment since September for release next summer.
The film, which had been shooting in Los Angeles and Atlanta recently, had been scheduled for release on July 11, 2014, but a delay now seems likely.
Director James Wan reportedly held a conference with Universal execs Sunday morning to discuss the future of the film.
As of now, it is unclear how much of Walker’s footage had been shot, though judging by action photos posted on Twitter by the cast, it’s likely that the majority of footage lensed was costly action sequences. That makes it uncertain what creative solutions Wan and Universal are left with as they consider scenarios for Walker’s character, undercover Los Angeles police officer Brian O’Conner. »

For those wondering about the secret sauce that makes Universal’s “Fast and Furious” franchise such a crowd pleaser, there it is — it’s a crowd pleaser. It’s a rather catchy and simple formula — the movies give fans what they want, which in this case happens to be fast cars, hot girls, tough guys, crazy amounts of action, and family, both literally and figuratively. It’s no wonder the series is already working on a seventh (and to hear star Vin Diesel tell hit, an eighth) installment, even as the box office busting sixth part “Fast and Furious 6″ gets ready to blaze its way onto DVD/Blu-ray this December 10th. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez lead a cast of returning all-stars as the global blockbuster franchise built on speed delivers the biggest adrenaline rush yet in this explosive extended version. Hobbs (Johnson) has been tracking »
