"Fast & Furious 7" continues filming in metro Atlanta today, with scenes being shot at Oakland Cemetery. Apparently the fast and furious lifestyle does not work out so well for everyone in the cast? Could this prevent a "Fast & Furious 8?" Perish the thought!

Anyway, if you're in that area it's possible traffic could be impacted, so take care.

The movie already has filmed at an in-town elementary school and at the correctional facility on Sylvan Road in Southwest Atlanta. The project also is due for a bit of OTP filming as well.

So far Paul Walker has been spotted at a number of locations. Details here.

We'll keep an eye out for Vin Diesel, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Deepika Padukone, Jason Statham and the rest of the cast. Atlanta's own Ludacris was on the set yesterday. 

Stay tuned!
