Filming for the next “Fast & Furious” film is well under way in Atlanta and actors Vin Diesel and Paul Walker were both spotted this week shooting what appears to be a funeral scene. Rapper/actor Ludacris was also seen on the set as well according to the Daily Mail.
The funeral scene is believed to be for a friend of Diesel’s character Dom, who died towards the end of “Fast & Furious 6.”
Two key announcements were made this week regarding the casting of “Fast & Furious 7.” The first was that Lucas Black, who appeared in “Fast & Furious 3: Tokyo Drift,” will appear in next film after not being included in the last three.
Black has signed on for three “Fast & Furious” movies according to Yahoo News.
The second announcement came from Universal as they said that Bollywood Star Deepika Padukone has dropped out of “Fast & Furious 7″ due to scheduling conflicts.
“Deepika was offered to be a part of the next “Fast and Furious” movie. She is a huge fan of the franchise and it’s disappointing not to be able to do it,” the actress’ spokesperson said in a press statement.
