Tyrese Confirms Fast & Furious 7 Will Film in Dubai
Tyrese Gibson has confirmed that the Fast & Furious cast will finally come to Dubai in January to continue filming the successful high speed saga.
After the shocking death of the film’s star Paul Walker, doubt was cast over whether the movie would be able to carry on with its production, but Gibson confirmed that the whole crew, including Vin Diesel, Ludacris and Jordana Brewster, would be in the UAE soon.
Tyrese, 35, told tabloid: “Right at the top of the year, we’ll be here for Fast 7”. He added: “At this point, it’s all about being inspired by Paul. I mean, he started the franchise, literally, one of my best friends ever, man.
“Sometimes I find it hard to enjoy life because he’s not here, but me knowing him, he would want us to keep smiling, keep having fun.”
Walker, who was in five of the six films about illegal street racing and bank heists, was riding as a passenger in a friend's Porsche after having lent his support to a charity event for the Philippines typhoon relief effort when the unnamed driver lost control of the vehicle during a charity event in Santa Clarita, California.
The sports car is said to have collided with a tree and burst into flames killing both the driver and Walker instantly. A statement posted on the actor's official Facebook fan page at the time reads: "It is with a truly heavy heart that we must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide. He was a passenger in a friend's car, in which both lost their lives. We appreciate your patience as we too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news. Thank you for keeping his family and friends in your prayers during this very difficult time."
