Paul Walker’s Replacement in Fast & Furious 7

Paul Walker’s Replacement in Fast & Furious 7

It was the question we were all thinking… but nobody really wanted to sound rude by asking what would happen with his character since he died part-way through the filming of the movie. But now we have an answer! And it’s pretty dang cool if you ask me. [TIME]

Filming on Fast & Furious 7 will continue with Paul Walker’s brothers filling in for the late actor.

A statement published on the official Fast & Furious Facebook page revealed that Caleb and Cody Walker have helped the production complete the action scenes that were not shot before Paul Walker died in a car accident in November.

“We came together and all felt the only choice was to continue,” the statement reads. “We believe our fans want that, and we believe Paul would want that too.”

Universal Pictures suspended production on Fast & Furious 7 in December following Walker’s death. According to The Hollywood Reporter, his character will retire in the upcoming film, not be killed off.
