Fast and Furious 7 delayed indefinitely

This isn't a surprise.

Due to the sudden death of Paul Walker which occurred yesterday, production of Fast and Furious 7 has been delayed indefinitely. Shooting was set to resume tomorrow in Atlanta, but Universal and the production crew have canceled the shoot and have not set a resume date at this time. The production wants to allow enough time for the cast and crew to grieve the loss of Walker as well as allowing time to complete inevitable re-writes to the script. Walker's character, Brian O'Conner, was a main character so obviously his role will need to be put in a different direction. The only Fast and Furious film Walker did not appear in was The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.

However, director James Wan and Universal have not determined if the July 11, 2014 release date will need to be changed. Wan stated that more than half of the actual filming has already been completed and they were set to go to Abu Dhabi after filming in Atlanta wrapped. I personally won't be surprised if this movie is delayed by a couple months.
