Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Paul Walker’s brothers CAleb and Cody are all set to fill in the shoes of the late actor in order to complete his remaining scenes in “Fast and Furious 7,” it was announced Tuesday.
A statement on the film’s official Facebook page reads, “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.”
It continued, “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.”
The statement concluded, “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.”
The filming for the project was put to a sudden halt upon the death of the film’s star Paul Walker, 40, due to a car crash last November 30 in Santa Clara, California.
“Fast and Furious 7,” which has resumed production last month, is set for release in theaters on April 10, 2015.
