Paul Walker’s Brothers Will Finish ‘Fast & Furious 7’ for Him

Hoping hologram Paul Walker would be used to finish filming his scenes in Fast & Furious 7? Sorry to disappoint but the team behind the movie is going old school. They’re bringing in brothers. The familial kind. Not the black kind. His two siblings, Caleb and Cody, will stand-in for him for scenes that he didn’t finish filming. In a statement on Facebook, they said having Caleb and Cody also made them feel like Paul was there.

The FAST & FURIOUS saga is about family. The characters are connected by the bond of family, and it is how all of us who have worked together for more than thirteen years feel about each other. It certainly defines how we feel about our fans.

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.

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.

We wanted to take a moment to speak to our fans directly and thank you for the love and support you always show us as we resume our work.

His brothers do look vaguely similar to him but do they have the same range as Paul? Eh, probably. Contrary to popular belief, acting like a laid back guy who just got out of bed isn’t that difficult.
