Paul Walker's brothers helping filmmakers
NEW YORK — Paul Walker’s brothers are stepping to help finish filming on “Fast & Furious 7,” the film Walker was in the midst of making when he died in November.
Caleb Walker and Cody Walker have been enlisted to complete their brother’s action scenes and “fill in small gaps left in production,” Universal Pictures said in a statement Tuesday on the film’s Facebook page.
“Having them on set has made us feel that Paul is with us too,” read the statement.
Production on “Fast & Furious 7” recently resumed after it was suspended following Walker’s death.
Walker, 40, died in a car crash on Nov. 30 outside Los Angeles along with his friend Roger Rodas. A police investigation found the Porsche that Rodas was driving was traveling up to 94 mph when it went out of control.
The release of “Fast & Furious 7” was delayed until April 2015 following Walker’s death.
