After halting production on Fast & Furious 7 following the tragic death of leading man Paul Walker back in November, Universal Pictures has now enlisted Walker’s brothers Caleb and Cody Walker to assist in completing some of the action shots and other scenes left incomplete. The news was announced on the film’s official Facebook page, with the following statement….
The Fast & Furious saga is about family. The characters are connected by the bond of family, and it is how all of us who have worked together for more than thirteen years feel about each other. It certainly defines how we feel about our fans.
Our family experienced an unthinkable shock in November. We had to take time to grieve Paul, the brother we love and lost, and to figure out if we should move on with our film.
We came together and all felt the only choice was to continue. »
