Fast and Furious 7

Fast & Furious 7: Vin Diesel, who serves as a producer for the Fast and Furious franchise as well as one of its stars, announced that Fast & Furious 7 will be released on April 10, 2015. He also noted that the previously released photo above is from the final scene he shot with costar Paul Walker, who died in an automobile accident late last month. The film was originally scheduled to be released on July 11, 2014; production has been shut down while the script is refashioned. [Facebook]

X-Men: Days of Future Past: Rogue, a mutant character played by Anna Paquin, was set to mark her return to the series in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, but director Bryan Singer says that the only sequence in which she appears has been cut from the movie. Singer notes that the scene was shot early in production and "through the editing process, the sequence became extraneous." The movie is still being edited, but is on track to meet its release date of May 23, 2014. []

Jonny Quest: The short-lived yet fondly remembered mid-1960s animated adventure show Jonny Quest is slowly making progress toward a big-screen, live-action version. Director Peter Segal (Grudge Match) is still attached to the project, and he says a new writer has been hired to give the screenplay "another pass." After that, it sounds like the budget will play a role in whether it gets made anytime soon. [Coming Soon]

Sabotage Trailer: Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in Sabotage as the leader of a DEA team in Atlanta. A new trailer presents a classic good news/bad news scenario. The good news? They bust a big drug cartel. The bad news? Millions of dollars are missing, and the DEA team is suspected. Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Mireille Enos and Olivia Williams also star; the action movie, directed by David Ayer (End of Watch), is heading to theaters on April 11, 2014. [Yahoo!]
