Excellent news for "Fast & Furious" fans: after weeks of speculation, "Fast & Furious 7" will be released on April 10, 2015.

The announcement comes after studio heads spent weeks brainstorming on how to move forward with the film after Paul Walker's death in a fiery car crash in Valencia. TMZ reported back in November that integral scenes involving the late actor were scheduled to shoot in Atlanta and Abu Dhabi in the weeks after Walker's death.

Vin Diesel, Walker's co-star in all of the "Fast & Furious" films, broke the news via Facebook:

The last scene we filmed together… There was a unique sense of completion, of pride we shared… in the film we were now completing… the magic captured… and, in just how far we've come…

Fast and Furious 7 will be released…

April 10th 2015!

P.s. He'd want you to know first…

telling the Hollywood Reporter that Walker will appear in the film, but in an unknown capacity.

The original release date for the film was in July of 2014. The extended release date will give time for director James Wan and writer Chris Hughes to work with the scenes the actor already shot for the film to give Walker's character a proper send-off.
