The trailer for Fast & Furious 7 is set to drop soon, and it will be in honor of Paul Walker.
“Fast & Furious fans worldwide…. The new Fast7 trailer is gonna drop Nov 1st,” Tyrese Gibson revealed recently.
“We did this in Paul’s honor. This movie is going to shock the world.”
“We did this on behalf of our family and our brother Paul Walker……. My entire heart miss you P!!! We hope we made you proud,” Gibson added later.
Walker, who plays Brian O’Conner in the Fast & Furious franchise, died in a car accident in November 2013, in the middle of filming.
Fast & Furious 7 will transition the character out of the franchise and introduce a new character played by Walker’s younger brother Cody Walker.
Cast members have been sharing pictures of Walker recently, including Vin Diesel and Ludacris.
No footage from the upcoming film has emerged other than a short clip that showed some of the characters at Han’s funeral. The characters–which included O’Conner, Diesel’s Dominic Toretto, Gibson’s Roman Pearce, and Ludacris’s Tej Parker–quickly noticed that they were being watched. The video was later taken offline.
Owen Shaw (Jason Statham) will be introduced in the seventh installment of the popular series as the main villain, looking to avenge his brother’s death. Ian Shaw was killed in Fast & Furious 6. Han’s girlfriend Gisele also died in the film.
Meanwhile, James Wan, who will come in as a new director replacing Justin Lin, said that “Fast 7 is definitely the hardest movie I’ve had to do in my career.”
“And it’s not just me. Neil Moritz [the film’s producer] has been doing this for a long time and is a very successful, seasoned producer and he said that to me too. That Fast 7 is the hardest movie he’s ever had to make as well in his entire career. And it’s very true,” he told Collider.
“But I think the final product will surprise a lot of people. It’s that hardest film I’ve ever had to make but it’s also the one I’m proudest of. I’m really proud of this film.”
Fast & Furious 7, starring Jordana Brewster, Dwayne Johnson, and Michelle Rodriguez, among others, will hit theaters on April 3, 2015.
