    NEW YORK (AP) - Universal Pictures has delayed the release of "Fast & Furious 7" for almost a year following the death of star Paul Walker.

    The studio announced Monday that the "Fast & Furious" sequel will be released in April 2015, instead of July 2014. Shooting on the film was about halfway finished when the 40-year-old Walker died in a car crash outside of Los Angeles.

    Walker will still appear in the film, though Universal has not said exactly how it will handle his unfinished performance.

    Co-star Vin Diesel first posted the news on Facebook, telling his fans that, "He'd want you to know first."

    The franchise has been one of Universal's most lucrative, grossing almost $2.4 billion worldwide since 2001. The last film, "Fast & Furious 6," made $789 million.
