The late Paul Walker’s final movie, ‘Fast & Furious 7,’ WILL hit theaters as scheduled in 2015. RELATED: Paul Walker dead after car crash. His brothers, Caleb and Cody, are on set to help filmmakers complete the film. A note was posted to the ‘Fast & Furious’ Facebook page explaining how they were wrapping the film after Paul’s untimely death last fall.
Here’s part of the Facebook post:
A Note to the Fans of FAST & FURIOUS
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. 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…
I can see why the studio would want to finish ‘Fast & Furious 7’: it was very close to completion when Paul died. His fans will likely enjoy getting to see the movie, but I’m sure it will be bittersweet.
