He played an integral role in the hit film franchise, but "Fast and Furious 7" will go on without its recently-passed star, Paul Walker.

When asked by TMZ whether production would continue on the action flick, director James Wan said, simply, "Yes."'

However, things are currently at a pause as Universal Pictures announced, "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."

In the new movie (originally set for release this July), after Dominic and his crew take down Owen Shaw, his brother Ian seeks revenge.
