Several thousand fans have signed a petition circulating online to name the street where Paul Walker died after the late "Fast & Furious" star.

The petition asks the city of Santa Clarita to change the street's name to "Walker Rodas Memorial Parkway." Which is something many residents of the area are against, according to TMZ.

City councilman TimBen Boydston told the website the street can only be renamed with support of the community, so it doesn't look like it's going to happen.

Meanwhile, Vin Diesel has confirmed that "Fast & Furious 7" will now be released in 2015 after studio execs stopped production after Walker's Nov. 30 death in a fiery car crash. Walker and other cast members were scheduled to return to Atlanta the next day to resume filming.

Producers came up with a plan on how to resume filming without the franchise's main star. According to MSN.com, Diesel has said on Facebook the movie will come out in April 2015, almost a year after its planned release date of July 2014.

He wrote "There was a unique sense of completion, of pride we shared ... in the film we were now completing ... the magic captured ... and, in just how far we've come ... Fast and Furious 7 will be released April 10th 2015! P.S. He'd want you to know first."
