With Half Of The Film Finished, Producers May Scrap ‘Fast & Furious 7’

December 4th, 2013 11:07am EST
Fast & The Furious 6
The death of Paul Walker may force Universal Pictures to start over with Fast & Furious 7, despite the amount of money and time already poured into the project.

TheWrap reports that the high-budget flick is on the chopping block even though half of the movie has already been filmed. Reportedly Paul Walker’s scenes had yet to be finished, so the studio is in the awkward position of attempting to write out Walker’s character or just start over.

The site does note that Universal insured itself for unexpected occurrences such as Pal’s tragic death, so they won’t be losing money if they trash ...

The Morning Roundup: Breast Cancer Claims Angelina Jolie's Aunt, Amanda Bynes Goes A Little Crazier & 'Fast 6' Wins Big

Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie's aunt, Debbie Martin, has died after a long battle with breast cancer. Martin revealed that she began battling the disease for a second time last year after undergoing a lumpectomy in 2004 during her first bout with the disease. She was 61. Jolie underwent a double mastectomy to significantly reduce her own chances of getting cancer, because she carries the BRCA1 gene, which increases a woman's risk of getting the disease. Jolie's mother, Marcheline Bertrand, died of ovarian cancer in 2007, and both women's deaths have been linked to the gene. (story)
