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 film.

Abu Dhabi’s government-backed twofour54 media hub said in a statement Wednesday that shooting in the United Arab Emirates capital is scheduled to take place in April.

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