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.

According to Vin Diesel.

Last we heard, Universal was taking some time to figure out how to move ahead with filming the almost completed seventh film in the Fast and the Furious series after Paul Walker‘s untimely passing. Via Vin Diesel’s Facebook page we now know the film has been pushed back to April 2015.

Diesel posted a picture of he and Walker from the film with the caption: “The last scene we filmed together… There was a unique sense of completion, of pride we shared… in the film we were now completing… the magic captured… and, in just how far we’ve come… Fast and Furious 7 will be released… April 10th 2015! P.s. He’d want you to know first…”

What remains unseen is whether Universal will use the existing footage shot with Walker or scrap it and him entirely from the film. I’m still thinking they’ll have his car transform into a space ship which unexpectedly returns him to his home planet.

Kurt Russell Cast In Next ‘Fast And Furious’ Film, But Probably Not As Stuntman Mike http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/kurt-russell-cast-in-next-fast-and-furious-film-but-probably-not-as-stuntman-mike/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/kurt-russell-cast-in-next-fast-and-furious-film-but-probably-not-as-stuntman-mike/#comments Thu, 26 Sep 2013 15:49:43 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=257244 Click for my theory on "Why not Stuntman Mike?"

I only say that Russell won’t be reprising his role as Stuntman Mike in the seventh installment of The Fast and the Furious because Stuntman Mike died at the end of Deathproof. And the producers of Fast take their mythologies and origin stories very seriously.

We have no idea what role he will play, but it’s unlikely he will slide into Vin Diesel’s character, Dominic Torretto, only because this picture has both of them in it. Unless Kurt Russell is playing a future version of Diesel, which makes perfect sense if you think about it, because Russell is much older, and they look pretty much identical. There’s a ton going on here, so please put your postulates and theories in the comments.

Thanks, and enjoy the next fourteen Fast and the Furious films.
