"Furious 7" has been on our watch list since two years and it is finally releasing in India on 2nd April. We are more attached to this film from the franchise as it is the last film of one of our favourites, Paul Walker. The handsome actor died in a tragic car crash in 2013 so it is the last time to see an all new film of the late actor on the big screen and we would not miss the chance at all.
However, we have sad news for Thailand fans of 'F&F'. Furious 7 was supposed to release on 1st April, but its screening has been stopped for now. The Civil Court on Thursday prohibited the screening of American action film "Furious 7" due to pending settlement of a breach of contract dispute between a local company (Sahamongkol Film) and the movie's star, Thai martial artist Panom Yeerum, better known as Tony Jaa, reports Bangkokpost. The action was brought by Somsak "Sia Jiang" Techaratanaprasert, the founder of Sahamongkol Film International.

Lawyer Suwat Apaipak filed the case with the Civil Court. Panom aka Tony Jaa, also known as Tachakorn, is accused of breaching a 10-year contract with Sahamongkol valid until 2023 by working for another company.
The movie was supposed to release in 2014 but due to the tragic death of Paul Walker, the movie was delayed. Paul Walker died in a tragic car accident on 30 November, 2013 while the shooting of "Furious 7" was underway. Universal Pictures had to stop the production of the movie as a mark of respect to the actor, thus causing delay.
