The next installment in the Fast & Furious series will arrive in theaters ahead of schedule. Universal has revealed that Fast & Furious 7 will now open on April 3 (Easter weekend) instead of April 10.
Now that the Fast & Furious sequel will open the first Friday of April 2015, it'll be competing against Fox's romantic film The Longest Ride. And the James Wan pic will now have two weeks to generate lots of money before Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 swings into theaters on April 17.
The seventh installment of the Fast & Furious series will bring several of the series cast including Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, and Dwayne Johnson. Writer Chris Morgan and director James Wan are both reprising their original positions on the pic, and Neal H. Moritz will also be back as producer.
