Vin Diesel and other members of the Fast & Furious 7 cast are heading to the Mideast city of Abu Dhabi after months of uncertainty about the fate of the movie.

Abu Dhabi's government-backed twofour54 media hub said in a statement on Wednesday that the film's shooting will take place in the city in April.

Filming of Fast & Furious 7 was put on hold in December following the death of its star Paul Walker in a car crash.

A crew filmed some helicopter shots, stunt footage and other scenes in Abu Dhabi in November. Cast members including Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez and Chris "Ludacris" Bridges are expected to arrive when filming resumes next month.

Walker, appeared in all but one of the six movies in the popular franchise, and was a leading protagonist along with Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez.
