The Universal Pictures film was set to resume shooting in Atlanta after a holiday break — with Walker slated to appear in key scenes throughout the week — but the cameras stayed down.

It is unknown when shooting will resume as filmmakers consider how to adjust the storyline.

Director James Wan, lead producer Neal Moritz and Universal executives have been convening to figure out how to recalibrate the movie without Walker, who shot only some of his scenes as ex-cop Brian O’Conner before he was killed in a car accident Saturday in Valencia.
