"Brian O'Conner," the character portrayed by Paul Walker who died in a tragic car accident before the film's completion, will be allowed to retire from the crew. He will be given a fitting, peaceful send off from the franchise. His unfinished scenes in the movie have already been shot using CGI for his face and voice and his brothers Caleb and Cody to stand-in for his body.
Filming for the movie wrapped up Thursday and a definite theater release date has been set. Universal Pictures' press statement in part says, "...Our family is big and strong but it won't ever quite be whole again without Paul...All of us - those who've been here from the start and those whose first FAST film is 7 - wanted to create a special film for him and you. We believe we have...The countdown to April 3 begins."
Aside from the late Paul Walker, Fast & Furious 7 will also see stars Vin Diesel ( as Dominic Toretto), Dwayne Johnson (Luke Hobbs), Michelle Rodriguez (Letty Ortiz), Jordana Brewster (Mia Toretto), Lucas Black (Sean Boswell), Tyrese Gibson (Roman Pearce) and Ludacris (Tej Parker) returning to reprise their original roles. They will be joined by an additional cast which includes Jason Statham, Kurt Russel, Ronda Roussey, Ali Fazal, Tony Jaa and Romeo Santos.
Directed by James Wan from a screenplay by Chris Morgan, the movie will show events unfolding as a result of a revenge plot hatched by Ian Shaw (played by Statham) for the death of his brother Owen (as seen in Fast & Furious 6) against Dominic and the crew. True to its trademark and brand, there will be those spectacular fight scenes, breathtaking car chases and car crashes, much carnage and mayhem for the fans to look forward to.
