The Fast & Furious has released the official trailer for the seventh installment of the upcoming action film. The franchise, which is unusually popular with the Jamaican audience, was rocked by tragedy last year when Paul Walker, the film’s beloved hero, was killed in a high speed car accident in Los Angeles. After Walker’s passing the crew showed their solidarity and love for the late actor with a slew of posts on social media and a very public outpouring of grief. Production was also halted since the movie was in the middle of filming when the actor was killed. Along with the trailer the film’s producers posted these words on YouTube:
“Continuing the global exploits in the unstoppable franchise built on speed, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of Fast & Furious 7 James Wan directs this chapter of the hugely successful series that also welcomes back favorites Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black. They are joined by international action stars new to the franchise including Jason Statham, Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa, Ronda Rousey and Kurt Russell. Neal H. Moritz, Vin Diesel and Michael Fottrell return to produce the film written by Chris Morgan."
After Walker’s tragic death, several sources reported that the star’s brother Cody Walker would complete the role of Brian O’Connor. According to the Jamaican Times the franchise will release at least three more films before concluding its legacy.
