Fast and Furious 7

Fast & Furious 7: As we learned yesterday via star and producer Vin Diesel, the release of Fast & Furious 7 will be delayed from July 2014 to April 10, 2015, due to the unexpected death of Paul Walker late last month. Now Universal Pictures has confirmed that Walker will still appear in the picture, quashing the idea that the script might be revised so as to eliminate his character entirely. The official statement says that Diesel and Walker will "lead" the returning cast. [EW.com]

Houdini: Citing scheduling issues, Hugh Jackman has dropped out of Houdini, a musical in development for Broadway. The play, revolving around the legendary magician and escape artist Harry Houdini, has been in the works for several years, with Jackman attached to star, and was aiming to debut next year. Jackman previously played a magician in Christopher Nolan's The Prestige in 2006. [Variety]

Deliver Us from Evil: A New York City cop and a renegade priest work together to solve a possibly "demonic" case in Deliver Us from Evil, directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister). The first image looks perfectly normal -- except for the mysterious and bloody words carved into a man's chest. The movie, formerly titled Beware the Night, stars Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, Joel McHale and Olivia Munn, and is due in theaters on July 2, 2014. [Shock Til You Drop]

Kevin Costner stars as the general manager of the Cleveland franchise, who grabs the opportunity to select first in the draft and (possibly) save the team… and his job. Jennifer Garner, Frank Langella, Denis Leary and Ellen Burstyn also star; Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) directed. The drama opens in theaters on April 11, 2014. [Yahoo!]
