Paul Walker’s brothers will fill in for their late brother in some action scenes in Fast & Furious 7, the producers of the film announced this week.
“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,” producers wrote to fans in a Facebook post Tuesday.
“We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our ‘Fast’ family,” the post 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.”
Walker, the oldest of five siblings, had shot most of his dramatic work before he was killed in a fiery car crash in Valencia, Calif., over the Thanksgiving break.
After the accident, Universal put production of the film on hold for several months. After director James Wan, writer Chris Morgan and Universal pored over existing footage and tweaked the script, production resumed in April.
Fast & Furious 7 will open in theaters on April 10, 2015.
