Paul Walker's Brother Cody to Complete Fast & Furious 7

Posted by Fellonius Munch Thursday, December 19, 2013
As I stipulated recently, it was never going to be easy deciding whether or not Fast & Furious 7 should continue filming, all things considered, such as the fact that the late Paul Walker's scenes were the majority of those as of yet unfinished!

Bear in mind that since the film was midway through production and most of the characters' scenes were reported as having been mostly completed, that would very possibly mean that the majority of scenes yet to be shot were all action/driving footage, so the film could be completed with minimum complications.

But in one of this week's most intriguing twists, it appears that Universal has approached Cody Walker, Paul's baby brother (15 years his junior) and a stunt-man to boot, and asked him to help film those remaining scenes while the studio tries to figure out what can be kept and what must inevitably be rewritten.

I don't think I'm the only one that couldn't have predicted such a bold move on Universal's behalf, but it may not be such a bad one. The Fast & Furious gang have become so much like family over the years and have so much respect for Paul's family, that it seems only fitting that they would want to complete the movie for the sake of the family, and therefore do so by literally keeping it in the family.

Of course, Walker's grieving family may find some positive finality and resolve in one more tribute to the action star, making this news a very possible reality.
