In case you missed it, Paul Walker’s brothers, Caleb and Cody will be joining the production team for Fast and Furious 7 to help wrap up Brian O’Conner’s role in the long standing franchise.
Universal confirmed the news in a Facebook message, writing:
“A Note to the Fans of FAST & FURIOUS: 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.”
Vin Diesel later took to Facebook to also confirm the news by posting a photo of himself with Walker’s brothers. In the image, the threesome can be seen in deep conversation. Check out how much Caleb and Cody really resemble their late brother:
“When I heard the news, I left the production, grabbed a plane and took my family and Michelle back to LA… drove directly to his parent’s house … His Father said, Paul loved you Vin… I awkwardly and nervously said, aw come on… then he said… you don’t have to get along every second to love each other… so true.”
“P.s. After spending time with his biological brothers, I must say to the parents, you raised some great kids.”Continue Reading
