Production on Fast & Furious 7 is reportedly set to resume in April (14).

Filming on the big-budget movie was put on hold in November (13), when franchise star Paul Walker was killed in a fiery car crash in California.

Prior to the tragedy, the cast was scheduled to return to Georgia to finish the film and on 1 April (14) they will head to the state for six to eight weeks to complete the movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

At the time of his death, Walker was more than halfway through filming his scenes as Brian O'Conner and studio bosses at Universal are said to have decided to retire his character so the franchise can continue.

Fast & Furious 7, which also stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez and Dwayne Johnson, is set to hit U.S. theatres in April, 2015.
