In the weeks following the tragic death of Paul Walker, Universal and the crew of 'Fast and Furious 7' have been forced to drastically course correct the direction of the blockbuster franchise. With little time to mourn and countless jobs and dollars on the line, sources reveal director James Wan, writer Chris Morgan and executive Jeffrey Kirschenbaum will gracefully "retire" Walker's Brian O'Conner from the series using footage already shot for the film.

As we reported this past weekend, 'Fast and Furious' star Paul Walker died tragically at the age of 40 after a terrible car crash. While his family and friends, including his 'F&F' brethren, continue to mourn his passing, the once fast-tracked 'Fast and Furious 7' had been delayed. Though Universal seemed keen on continuing on with production, new reports claim the studio might scrap the project all together and start anew.

While 'Fast and Furious 7' is revving up production in Georgia, with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson heading there straight from working on Brett Ratner's 'Hercules,' we still have the 'Fast and Furious 6' DVD and Blu-ray release to look forward to. You can own all the action when it hits home this December, just in time for the holidays!
When it comes to 'Fast and Furious 7' -- or, rather, all of Vin Diesel's projects -- there's no better source for up-to-date intel than the man himself. After revealing a slew of behind-the-scenes and set photos from the seventh installment of the franchise, Diesel has unveiled our first look at Mr. Kurt Russell.
Dangerous car chases through heavily populated urban environments has always been a cornerstone of the wonderfully ludicrous 'Fast and Furious' series and the latest film is certainly not going to be an exception. Filming is currently underway on 'Fast and Furious 7' and the production is looking for some fans to fill out some key scenes.
With the impending release of 'Riddick,' we're once again introduced to the character who truly put Vin Diesel on the map. You might even say he's the quintessential Diesel role, except you'd then have to be reminded of how perfect the actor is in the 'Fast & Furious' movies as Dom Toretto. So who is more badass, Toretto or Richard B. Riddick?
A few weeks ago, we reported that Denzel Washington had turned down a role in the upcoming 'Fast and Furious 7.' Now, Variety is reporting that the great Kurt Russell is in talks to step into the part instead. Goodbye, Mr. Washington. We love you, but this is a case where you will not be missed.
As the 'Fast and Furious' series has progressed, the cast has steadily increased in size and star power. Just look at the line-up of this summer's 'Fast and Furious 6,' which somehow managed to wrangle up every cast member from across the franchise while adding a few more faces. Well, it looks like another character will be joining the crew for 'Fast and Furious 7,' but he will not be played by Denzel Washington...because he turned down the role.
