Paul Walker’s Brothers to Help Fill in ‘Small Gaps’ in ‘Fast & Furious 7’ Production

In the wake of Paul Walker’s unexpected death in November, his brothers Cody and Caleb will step in for him and help finish some remaining shots for Universal’s “Fast & Furious 7.”

According to a statement made on the film’s Facebook page on Tuesday, the two Walker brothers will help with some “remaining action” and other shots that were not completed before Paul Walker’s death. The statement reads that he had already shot his dramatic scenes and most of the action, which they called “among the strongest work of his career.”

“Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too,” the statement on the film’s Facebook page reads.

“We are just under a year away from the release of ‘Fast & Furious 7,’ and this film is the most important we’ve ever done together. It will allow the character of Brian O’Conner to live on and let us celebrate Paul in his most defining role.”

Paul Walker was one of two people who died in a car crash in Valencia, Calif., on Nov. 30. He was 40.

Production was put on hold for several months after the accident as the cast and crew decided in which direction to take the film. It resumed this month after director James Wan and scribe Chris Morgan tweaked the script.

“Fast & Furious 7” is set to bow April 10, 2015, and stars Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez and Chris “Ludacris” Bridges.
