Production on Fast & Furious 7 had been stalled for several months following star Paul Walker's untimely death but is now up and running again.

Director James Wan confirmed that filming has resumed (in Abu Dhabi) by posting this image on Instagram, alongside the caption 'First day back filming. Better and stronger. #Fast&Furious7'.

Walker died in a car crash last November. While the production company have not yet revealed how they are going to handle his absence, the New York Daily News report that his character Brian O'Conner - who had appeared in every film of the series apart from Tokyo Drift - will be retired rather than killed off and that scenes featuring the character will be completed by using body doubles and CGI.
