After months of delays following the tragic death of Paul Walker in November last year, James Wan's Fast & Furious 7 is revving back in to gear.

Following the four-month hiatus after the unexpected death of the star, director Wan shared a photo on Instagram recently of a placard from set, writing: "First day back filming. Better and stronger."

Fast 7 was about half finished with shooting when Walker - who played ex-cop Brian O'Conner - was killed in a car crash in California.

Justin Lin, who is responsible for four parts of the super-successful franchise, declined to direct Fast & Furious 7. The filmmaker cited the accelerated production timeline as the main reason for not doing Fast 7. But with Saw and The Conjuring director Wan on the case, Universal made an interesting replacement choice that could result in Fast & Furious 7 being the darkest part of the series yet.
