Producers confirmed on Tuesday (15.04.14) that Caleb and Cody Walker have signed on to shoot the remaining scenes featuring the late star's character, Brian O'Connor, for the upcoming blockbuster.
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.''
A source first revealed in December that producers had approached his ''nearly identical brother'' Cody, who worked as a stuntman in the past, to help them to finish the project, explaining: ''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.
If Cody agrees it's because he wants to honour his brother's memory.'' The movie is scheduled to be released on April 10, 2015.
