Fast & Furious 7 Cast 'To Return To Set'

Filming for Fast & Furious 7 will reportedly resume at the end of this month after being delayed following the death of its star Paul Walker.

Universal Studios said production will pick up where it left off on March 31, according to The Wrap website.

Walker was killed when the Porsche his friend was driving crashed into a tree in Santa Clarita, California, last November.

Vin Diesel, who plays Dominic Toretto in the franchise, hinted that a return to the set was imminent.

Writing on his Facebook page, he said: "The transition into that Dom state of mind has always been an interesting one ... only this time there is added purpose, a collective goal to make this the best one in the series. PS, the long awaited completion of Seven begins."

It is understood filming was more than 50% complete when Walker died.

The cast and crew have been given time off to grieve, as well as time for producers to work out how to proceed with the movie.

Filming could take up to eight weeks.

Fast & Furious 7 was due to be released this year but it has been pushed back until 2015.
