As you know production of Fast and Furious 7 was put on hold following Paul Walker’s death in a car accident. And then the film release date was postponed to April 2015… There’s now a new update: the production team has decided to keep the scenes with Paul Walker as Brian O’Connor that were filmed before he died. But the script of Fast and Furious 7 has been tweaked so as to somehow “retire” his character.
Brian O’Connor will likely have a safe exit from the Fast and Furious franchise: I guess the angle will be that Brian has to take care of his wife Mia and their newborn kid.
Now how are they going to bridge the gap between Paul Walker’s footage and the new plot? Will Paul Walker’s brother or another look-alike film the last scenes? Or are they going to use CGI? What do you think would be best?
More information about Fast and Furious 7 soon!
In theaters: April 10, 2015.
