Los Angeles: Director James Wan has confirmed `Fast & Furious 7` will be completed following star Paul Walker`s untimely death.

Wan said that the action movie will finish filming and be released in due course, despite previous speculation the leading man`s death will result in the film being scrapped, reported TMZ online.

Production on the film was halted in the aftermath of Walker`s death in a fiery car crash on November 30.

Wan confirmed the movie will go ahead and added the cast and crew are gathering their bearings following their friend`s demise.
