Fast & Furious 7 is set to be one of the biggest movies of 2015, but it will be tinged with sadness as well as excitement.

Fast & Furious 7 will be the last time that we see Paul Walker on the big screen; he passed away in November of last year during the filming of this latest instalment.

He will reprise the role of Bryan O'Connor, alongside Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jordana Brewster.

However, there are some exciting new additions to the cast list as Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, and Djimon Hounsou are all on board.

It was back in 2001 when we were introduced to this franchise and there characters for the first time, and Fast & Furious 6 hit the big screen back in 2013.

2013 may have been the sixth instalment, but it was the most successful film in the franchise to date - taking that title away from Fast 5.

While there are plenty of familiar faces on the cast list, it is all change in the director's chair as James Wan is on board for the first time.

Wan takes over from Justin Lin, as he returns for his first movie since Insidious: Chapter 2 last year.

Very little is known about the plot for the new film, except that Statham will take on the role of Ian Shaw; brother of Owen Shaw, Fast & Furious 6's villain.

However, we do have to wait a little while before the movie hits the big screen, as it is not set to be released 3rd April 2015.
