Paul Walker's Bros to Complete Film - "The Fast & Furious Saga is About Family"

Paul Walker’s tragic death following a high-speed car accident - which also claimed the life of Roger Rodas – threw his most high-profile movie to date into question; how would Fast & Furious 7 reach completion without one of its key stars?

Well now it seems as though Walker’s close family are stepping in to get the high-octane franchise back on track, helping to finish the last scenes still needing to be shot. "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," the franchise posted on Facebook on Tuesday.

Walker’s car crash in November last year stunned the film world, and sent shockwaves through the mass media as speculation was rife as to the exact circumstances surrounding his death. "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."

The post continued, "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."

Atlanta's 11Alive recently confirmed that shooting has started up again and "will include automotive stunts, simulated combat, and special effects," including explosions and simulated munitions fire. Before his death, Walker had shot numerous scenes for the film. His character Brian O'Conner will not die, but will be "retired" from the franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
