-- Production has been shut down on The Rock's new film "Fast & Furious 7" following the tragic death of actor Paul Walker over the weekend. After rushing to get the movie completed in time for a July 2014 release, producers are now considering scrapping the entire film and starting over. Fast & Furious 7, which has a $200 million budget, was more than halfway finished at the time of Walker's death.
The Rock tweeted on Wednesday morning:
"Losing a loved one jolts our hearts to the core... It also has a way of helping us move forward to live & love as greatly as possible. #PW"
