Paul Walker’s brothers Caleb and Cody to help finish filming on ‘Fast & Furious 7’
Paul Walker’s brothers Caleb and Cody are set to help finish filming on ‘Fast & Furious 7’. The Fast & Furious franchise released the news via their Facebook Page in a heartfelt letter to their fans yesterday. The page stated that Paul had already shot all of his dramatic scenes, most of his action scenes and the brothers would be helping to fill in some of the remaining action scene gaps left in production.
Paul, 40, was on a break from shooting the film when he died in a car crash in November and filming was put on hold until recently.
A note on the movie’s official Facebook page stated: “The Fast & Furious saga is about family. 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. We believe our fans want that, and we believe Paul would want that too. Paul had already shot his dramatic scenes and most of his action for ‘Fast & Furious 7,’ and it’s among the strongest work of his career.
“We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our Fast family. Caleb and Cody are helping us complete some remaining action for their brother and fill in small gaps left in production. Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too.”
Paul’s younger brother Cody is nearly identical. As reported by Bang Showbiz, “they can shoot Cody from behind and at distance and if it’s a shot they need Paul’s face in close up they can CGI it later on.
The movie is scheduled to be released on April 10, 2015.
