Los Angeles - Paul Walker will remain in Fast & Furious 7.
The late actor, who died in a fiery car crash in 30 November, won't be edited out of the film, Universal Pictures has confirmed.
Walker and co-star Vin Diesel will "lead the cast" of the seventh movie, which will now be released on 10 April 2015, after production was postponed following Walker's death.
Universal said in a statement: "Continuing the global exploits in the franchise built on speed, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead the returning cast of Fast & Furious 7, which will be released by Universal Pictures on 10 April 2015. James Wan directs this chapter of the hugely successful series, and Neal H. Moritz and Vin Diesel return as producers."
The studio previously abandoned its July 2014 release date after Walker died in a tragic car crash in Santa Clarita, California, along with his friend Roger Rodas last month.
Diesel also shared the news on his Facebook page, posting a picture of himself and Walker filming the upcoming instalment.
He wrote: "The last scene we filmed together...There was a unique sense of completion, of pride we shared... in the film we were now completing... the magic captured... and, in just how far we've come... Fast and Furious 7 will be released...April 10th 2015! P.s. He'd want you to know first... (sic)"
