The tragic death of actor Paul Walker last year though a gigantic wrench in the works for Universal Studios, who had to rethink the script for Fast and Furious 7 in a way that would keep the fans happy.
The movie was supposed to be ready to debut in July this year, but has been delayed for April 10th, 2015. Reports suggest the new script required additional filming to compensate for the death of leading actor Paul Walker, who plays Brian O'Conner.

This next clip posted by shows footage taken during alleged FF7 shooting that took place in Abu Dhabi, the capital and the second largest city of the United Arab Emirates. The video has been captured from high up in an apartment block or maybe using an aerial drone in some cases. It shows a red Ferrari 458 Italia, a camera car and police cars chasing.

According to, Abu Dhabi’s media zone twofour54 denied that filming was for Fast and Furious 7, though this might be a simple coverup. They also report that police did not allow passage through a tunnel on the approach to Sheikh Zayed Bridge, until filming finished at about 1PM last Friday.
