Fast & Furious 7 is keeping it in the family!
In the aftermath of Paul Walker's death last year, the producers of the Fast & Furious 7 have enlisted the help of the late star's two lookalike brothers in order to complete the film's final scenes.
The announcement was made via a note on the film's Facebook page, explaining, "The Fast & Furious saga is about family. 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."
After Walker's death on Nov. 30, the production on the franchise's final film was put on indefinite hold. Originally, the movie was to be released in July 2014, however a delay occurred so that the cast and crew could figure out how to continue on with production after the death of their leading man.
"We came together and all felt the only choice was to continue," explained the Facebook note. "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."
The producers continued, "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 think that it's a great idea that the producers have chosen to include Paul's brothers in the franchise that made him a star.
The final Fast & Furious drives into theaters on April 10, 2015.
