Paul Walker’s brother Cody Walker, the next Fast and Curious 7 cast member? Well, I can tell you this, there has been great consideration for Cody to step in and film the final scenes for Fast and The Furious 7.
Interestingly enough, Cody has worked as a movie stuntman so he does have some movie experience.
After Paul’s death, everyone has been wondering how Universal Pictures is going to handle this tremendous loss. The shutdown had production crew wanting everyone to know that they were NOT focused on finishing the film, but rather being “dedicated to providing support to Paul’s immediate family and our extended Fast & Furious family of cast, crew, and filmmakers.”
But you better believe there was massive discussion following the loss of Paul.
A source close to production said that “Producers had a string of meetings right after Paul’s death. They soon realized they needed someone who looked like Paul to finish the movie and that’s when they approached his nearly identical brother, Cody.”
At this time Cody as been staying with his mother Cheryl in Los Angeles and helping to comfort her since his brother’s death. If Cody agrees to take on this role, the source said that, “They can shoot Cody from behind and at distance and if it’s a shot they need Paul’s face in close up they can CGI it later on. If Cody agrees it’s because he wants to honor his brother’s memory. There are many details that still need to be worked out, but right now the family and cast and crew are all still grieving.”
But Universal is not just going to do anything without the family’s guidance. They are said to be working with the Walker family on a fitting exit for Paul’s Fast & Furious character, Brian O’Connor.
