Universal Pictures has shut down production on Fast & Furious 7 indefinitely following the death of its star, Paul Walker.

The studio announced Wednesday that the film will shut down "for a period of time so we can assess all options available to move forward with the franchise."

The seventh installment of the street racing series had begun shooting in September. While much of Fast & Furious 7 has been filmed, it's far from complete.

When Walker died in a fiery car crash Saturday north of Los Angeles, the film was on break for the Thanksgiving holiday. Shooting had been planned to resume Monday in Atlanta, but production was put on hold following Walker's death.

Universal had been trying to fast-track Fast & Furious 7 for a July 11 release, a date that's likely to now be postponed. Universal hasn't yet announced any release date change.
