It’s been a mystery about what will happen with Paul Walker’s character for Fast & Furious 7, but it had been stated that the actor would be in the film and not killed off. It turns out Paul Walker’s two brothers, Caleb and Cody have actually joined the F&F7 production and will act as physical fill ins to complete the remaining action scenes that their brother cannot.
The Fast & Furious franchise has, since the beginning, heavily promoted the importance of family and I think this is a really nice move on the company’s part to reflect that. The Fast & Furious Facebook page made a long post about this decision but it all seems to be summed up with one sentence, “Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us, too.”
It’s still sad to have lost Walker at such a young age, but moving forward, fans can at least look forward to his final appearance in the franchise and know that he will receive an honorable sendoff.
