Although production delays could cause the July 11 release date of Fast & Furious 7 to be pushed back, the film will not be canceled entirely following Paul Walker's death in a car accident this past weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Citing sources that said much of the movie had already been shot, THR notes that the studio was already facing an expedited timeline and might now encounter issues marketing the movie given that cars were involved in Walker's death.
