The future of the seventh installment in the series which is penciled to hit theaters in July next year is unclear at this time. According to reports, filming of the movie was more than halfway done at the time of Walker's passing. Shooting of the film started back in September. However, Universal Pictures has released an official statement saying that production of Fast and Furious 7 has been halted indefinitely.

Here's an excerpt from the statement by Universal Pictures:
"Right now, all of us at Universal are dedicated to providing support to Paul's immediate family and our extended Fast & Furious family of cast, crew and filmmakers. At this time we feel it is our responsibility to shut down production on Fast & Furious 7 for a period of time so we can assess all options available to move forward with the franchise. 

We are committed to keeping Fast & Furious fans informed, and we will provide further information to them when we have it. Until then, we know they join us in mourning the passing of our dear friend Paul Walker."
