Fast & Furious 7 is moving ahead with Paul Walker as one of the film’s leads. After the actor’s untimely death, the film’s release pushed while producers decided how to deal with the loss. It’s now been decided that they will use the footage Walker had already shot and, with script changes, retire his character in some kind of way.
Though we don’t know how this will be handled in the final film, it’s a matter that needs to be handled with sensitivity. This news brings relief that Brian O’Conner will not be killed off or replaced with a mannequin that they manipulate Weekend at Bernie‘s style.
