Paul Walker’s Character Won’t Be Killed Off In ‘Fast & Furious 7,’ But Will Be Retired

While there was some talk of scrapping and restartingFast & Furious 7” following the tragic death of franchise star Paul Walker, when Universal announced the new 2015 release date for the film, the press release quietly emphasized that “Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead the returning cast.” So how will they do it?

According to THR, the footage that Walker shot before his death will be utilized, and the script by Chris Morgan tweaked, so that the character of Brian O’Conner can exit the film, but he won’t be killed off. In short, they are trying to find a respectful way to handle the loss of Walker, without removing him entirely from the sequel and still working within the framework and story of the film. Makes sense, though we understand why the movie was pushed, as it’s not something you want to rush to make work.
