Sadly, the remaining three sequels will have to make do, of course, without one of the series' main stars, Paul Walker. Diesel's co-star in every one of the installments to date was killed in a high-speed crash in a Porsche Carrera GT nearly two years ago. The last movie was finished at extensive cost by using computer animation and body doubles to fill in for Walker.
Diesel promises to announce the director for the next movie in due course. No timeline was given at this point for the filming, production, or theatrical release of the eighth installment or the two that will follow.
