Fast & Furious 7 Release Date, Vin Diesel Shares Old Paul Walker Picture, See Here [PICTURE]
Fast and Furious 7 is just under a year away from hitting theaters and filming is almost wrapped, but the cast is still dealing with mixed emotions about finishing the movie series without co-star Paul Walker who tragically died late last year.
Cast star Vin Diesel has open with his fans about dealing with Paul not being around still and went to Facebook Thursday night (June 26) to post an old picture of Walker and himself at the 2002 MTV Movie Awards (see picture above). Along with the picture he wrote this, ""A song comes to mind... with this throwback pic....Has anybody here, seen my old friend Pablo... Can you tell me where he's gone... he helped a lot of people, but it seems the good die young, I just looked around and he was gone...
Thank you all for being with us the whole way. Fast Family!"
There has also been open mixed emotions over finishing Paul Walker's scenes with visual effects to finish the movie.
Diesel and the rest of the cast have been having difficult time handling emotional set and are still feeling pain over Paul loss. The team has been working with doubles and using facial-replacement technology for the remainder of Walker's scenes. Walker's two brothers, Caleb and Cody, have been added to the Fast family as stand-ins for Walker to complete remaining action scenes.
"Vin spent a whole day in his trailer one day," said one insider to The Hollywood Reporter. "The next day, they waited four hours for him. He called a meeting [May 28] of studio execs to his trailer for two-and-a-half hours to say, 'What the f*** am I doing here?'"
Diesel went to Facebook on June 17 to write this post:
"There wasn't a scene in the saga he didn't want to discuss, improve... even with just a changing of a line or adding a specific nuance to enrich a moment," Diesel wrote. "Those work ethics and drive to be both truthful, and in his own way, evolve the decade spanning character is what made his character as iconic as it has become."
"He always knew I would fight for him... whether it was to protect his deal or to protect his integrity... and he knew that if it made for a better film, I was going to do whatever it took," Diesel said. "With our new ambitious vfx team, the whole cast and crew has had to adjust to this awkward and uncomfortable process of pixels over people. Aside from the obvious strains it places on the director, the challenge is not to allow it to compromise what makes the character so special."
Walker died on Nov. 30 in Santa Clarita, Southern California in a tragic car accident while the cast and crew were on a hiatus period. His shocking death has sent shockwaves through Hollywood. He was 40 years old.
Fast and Furious 7 is scheduled to hit theaters on April 10, 2015.
