Along with the picture, the famous actor wrote a personal note about the passing of his dear friend Paul Walker.
“When I heard the news, I left the production, grabbed a plane and took my family and Michelle back to LA… drove directly to his parent’s house…
His Father said, Paul loved you Vin… I awkwardly and nervously said, aw come on… then he said… you don’t have to get along every second to love each other… so true.
P.s. After spending time with his biological brothers, I must say to the parents, you raised some great kids.”
Again, last week Universal revealed via Facebook that they will be welcoming Walker’s brothers, Caleb and Cody to the Fast and Furious team: “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.” But besides this, little is known about how director James Wan and screenwriter Chris Morgan plan to retire Walker’s character. But the seventh entry in the series seems to be moving forward, with a planned release date of April 10, 2015. Until more information is released, we can only speculate on the fate of Brian O’Connor or the exact use of Walker’s brothers.
For now, the movie has resumed shooting on April 1 and boasts an enormous returning cast: Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Lucas Black, Tyrese Gibson, Bow Wow, and Ludacris. On top of this, the seventh installment will see the inclusion of several new faces, including Kurt Russell, Djimon Hounsou, Ronda Rousey, Tony Jaa, and Jason Statham as Ian Shaw, the villainous brother of Shaw (Luke Evans).
