Paul Walker Will Be Retired in 'Fast and Furious 7'

January 4, 2014, 2:39 am GMT

Brian O'Conner will not be killed off, but will be retired with plan to shoot additional scenes in order to bid proper farewell to Walker's character.



How Universal will move forward with "Fast and Furious 7" after the sudden death of one of its key stars Paul Walker is revealed. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the late actor's character Brian O'Conner will be retired in the upcoming installment.

The studio will "make use of the existing footage of Walker," who passed away halfway through the film's production. Additional scenes are written and will be shot to give Walker a proper sendoff "in a way that the studio hopes will satisfy fans of the franchise."

The film was originally set for July 11, 2014 release, but now has been moved back to April 10, 2015. The production was put on hold as the script was getting revised. James Wan sits the behind the lens, and Vin Diesel is back as Walker's on-screen sidekick.

"The last scene we filmed together...There was a unique sense of completion, of pride we shared... in the film we were now completing... the magic captured... and, in just how far we've come...," the "Riddick" star once wrote on Facebook.

Walker died on November 30 in a single car accident in Santa Clarita. A new report by the Los Angeles County Coroner reveals the Porsche Carrera GT which his friend Roger Rodas was driving was traveling at 100 miles per hour before it went out of control, hit a tree, and went up in flames.
