‘Fast & Furious 7’ Wraps Production With Heartfelt Message to Fans


The cast and crew of Fast & Furious 7 just finished production and sent out a heartfelt message to fans thanking them for their support.

This production was definitely tougher than the previous ones due to Paul Walker’s tragic death in a car crash last November.

Paul’s passing caused the film to be postponed, but with the support of fans, it was not cancelled.

The message, posted Thursday on the Fast & Furious Facebook page, with a photo of Vin Diesel, started off with “We made it. Today we completed the last shot in the production of FAST & FURIOUS 7.”

“We wanted to take this moment to express how thankful we are for your support. We felt the love and strength from our fans throughout this journey, and it’s because of you that we got here. There was a time when we didn’t know how we could go on, or even if we should. But we listened to you, and you inspired us not only to keep going but to try and make the best FAST & FURIOUS movie yet,” the post reads.

The message goes on to thank fans of the franchise for their love and support through this emotional journey.

The lead actor’s death seemed to be the driving force behind the message and they made a point to mention him briefly. “Our family is big and strong but it won’t ever quite be whole again without Paul.” They added that Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, joined the team to help complete the film in honor of their brother.
