With the passing of Paul Walker, fans were wondering what would happen to his character of Brian O’Conner in Fast & Furious 7. The film was initially supposed to be released this summer, but has been pushed back to April 2015. Well, it seems that Universal has come up with a solution after bringing in Chris Morgan to flesh out the script.
Walker’s character will “retire” from the franchise instead of being killed off in the film; which would have been inappropriate and heartless. Universal hopes this will be handled “in a way that the studio hopes will satisfy fans of the franchise and make use of the exciting footage of Walker.”
Hollywood was hit pretty hard after the loss of Walker. I love all the FF films, but my favorite movie os his is Running Scared. It was a super crazy action film that really had put his character through the paces, and Walker got to express his acting chops. It’s still really sad to think about him going at such a young age.
The film also stars Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Kurt Russell, Djimon Hounson, Tyrese Gibson,Ludacris, Lucas Black, and Dwayne Johnson. Fast & Furious 7 opens April 10th, 2015.
