Fast & Furious 7 fans, here’s the latest on the production:

For years, folks have said that computers were going to replace us. And they may be right. Especially at the cinema. With the technological advances in CG face-mapping, complex voice-replicating software, and motion capture…we may soon find ourselves in a cinematic landscape where actors can be replicated by digital counterparts. Such is the case with Paul Walker and Fast & Furious 7. According to a source for THR, the sixth sequel to The Fast and The Furious may have found its answer to “How do you solve a problem like Paul Walker dying mid-production?”

“They have hired four actors with bodies very similar to Paul’s physique and they will be used for movement and as a base. Paul’s face and voice will be used on top using CGI,” says the unnamed source who works within the Fast & Furious 7 production. »
