'Fast and Furious 7' retitled 'Furious 7'

NEW YORK (AP) — The latest "Fast and Furious" movie has been retitled "Furious 7."

The new title for the film, previously known as "Fast and Furious 7," was unveiled online Sunday by Universal Pictures. The film, set to open in April, is one of the last films starring Paul Walker, who died in a car crash last November.

Walker died midway through shooting "Furious 7" and the film will still include his performance.

More than perhaps any other franchise, the "Fast and Furious" movies have steered clear of consistent titles. Instead, they have furiously mixed articles and numbers in ever-shifting titles like "2 Fast 2 Furious," ''The Fast and the Furious" and "Fast Five."
