Universal Pictures has announced that Paul Walker's brothers, Caleb and Cody, signed on to help complete the seventh installment in the 'Fast and Furious' franchise. Paul was in production on the film when he died in a car crash in L.A. in November.
"We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our FAST family," the announcement said. "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."
The announcement from the producers went on to say that their series of films are made by a group of people who are like family and that the loss of Paul Walker was devastating and it was a difficult decision to complete the film. Walker died at 40 when a Porsche driven by his friend, Roger Rodas, crashed going 150 km an hour; Rodas also died.
"The FAST & FURIOUS saga is about family," the announcement also said. "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.
"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," it added. "We came together and all felt the only choice was to continue."
The producers say they are arranging sequences which had already been shot in a manner that will say goodbye to Paul Walker's character, Brian O'Conner, in a positive way. "It will allow the character of Brian O'Conner to live on and let us celebrate Paul in his most defining role," the statement reads.
Fast and Furious 7 is expected to hit the theaters in April of 2015.
