They really are fast. The latest sequel of the famous action-packed franchise “Fast & Furious” will be available on the big screen one week before the schedule.
The movie was actually supposed to be aired this month, but after the tragic death of the Fast & Furious star Paul Walker who died in a car crash last November, the big-budget movie was pushed back to April 10, 2015.
However, Universal studio confirmed today that the latest sequel of the highly anticipated tire-squealing action will be released worldwide on April 3rd.
This will allow the studio to book more international theaters.
Just when you thought the franchise couldn’t get anymore furious, the regular movie cast comprised of Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez, will be strengthened by none other than Jason Statham and Djimon Hounsou.
Walker has completed only one part of his scenes before the tragic accident, and he is going to be replaced by his brothers Cody and Caleb. So, the fans shouldn’t be worried about the Walker’s role in the sequel.
Production on the sequel was finished last week and Johnson made sure that the rest of crew, including director James Wan received some love and some credit for all of their hard work.
The pro-wrestler shared a behind-the-scenes photo from the set and wrote: “My last day. I’m truly touched by the farewell love my film crew has shown me. It’s been an honour to work with such an incredibly hard working and brilliant crew.”
The caption continued: “They may not be household names, but they’ll ALWAYS be stars in my book. With great love and respect to all of you… see ya down the yellow brick road. Another place. Another time.#ThankUForAllYourWork.”
