Vin Diesel shares Paul Walker, "Fast & Furious 7" set pics

With "Fast & Furious 7" now on track for its April 2015 release date, we're getting a closer look behind the scenes.

Franchise star Vin Diesel shared several photos on social media Tuesday -- images taken from the set of the new sequel.

Production on the film had been delayed following the death of Diesel's co-star Paul Walker -- killed in a November, 2013 car crash in California at the age of 40.

On Facebook, Diesel described the release of his upcoming film co-starring his late friend as "emotional and bittersweet."

"We all went above and beyond to make Pablo proud, but man, I wish he could see what we have created and just how far we have come," Diesel wrote.

In April, Diesel was spotted in a photo taken from the film's set featuring Walker's brothers, Caleb and Cody, who filled in for their late siblings as body doubles in several scenes.

In addition to Diesel and Walker, "Fast and Furious 7" will also star Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Lucas Black, Kurt Russell, Jason Statham and Iggy Azalea.

The action sequel races into theaters on April 3, 2015.
