Universal has a plan for “Fast & Furious 7”
Universal has finally announced what they will be doing with the “Fast & Furious 7” film in the wake of Paul Walker’s untimely death.
According to ComingSoon, Universal has already poured around $150 million into the production, and they are hopeful that they can still use most of what they shot.
Screenwriter Chris Morgan is said to be doing revisions that executives hope can retire Walker’s character from the series using already filmed plot points, and if he is successful the entire cast will return to set in January to finish filming.
If he can’t then the current version of the film could be scrapped, and would lead to the largest insurance claim in the history of Hollywood.
The $150 million would have to be paid by the studio’s insurance firm, Fireman’s Fund.
