The wait is over, Fast fans! The title of the latest “Fast and Furious” movie will be “Furious 7,” Universal announced Sunday in a Facebook post, which included a slick poster and a promo video in a later post.
“Because of our fans, our saga has grown bigger and better with every chapter. In just 7 days, we will reveal the first trailer for our next installment – FURIOUS 7 – at The Road to Furious 7: Trailer Launch Event at Universal Studios in Los Angeles!”
The film stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster and Tyrese Gibson. Walker died in a car crash in November 2013, before the film wrapped production. His brothers helped complete some of his scenes.
The latest installment of the high-octane franchise is set to arrive in theaters on April 3, 2015.
Below is Universal’s full announcement:
