Paul Walker's Fast and Furious character will retrire

Jan 6 2014, 10:36am CST | by

Paul Walker's character in 'Fast & Furious 7' will retire.

The late actor played undercover police officer Brian O'Connor in the franchise, but hadn't finished shooting the seventh instalment when he died in a nasty car crash on November 30 last year.

However, according to the Hollywood reporter, bosses have decided the star's alter-ego will not be killed off and will instead be written out of the script using existing footage of Walker in a bid to keep fan's satisfied and allow for the franchise to continue.

The future of the movie loomed in the balance last month after production was postponed following the devastating news, but Universal Pictures confirmed a few weeks ago that Walker and his co-star Vin Diesel will ''lead the cast'' of the seventh movie, which was initially set for a July 2014 release date but will now be released on April 10, 2015.

Walker, who starred in five of the six 'Fast & Furious' movies, was killed along with his friend Roger Rodas when the Porsche Carrera GT they were travelling in smashed into a tree and a lamppost and burst into flames in Santa Clarita, California.

A report from the Los Angeles County Coroner released last week states Roger was driving at an ''unsafe speed'' of over 100 miles per hour on the road - which has a designated limit of 45 miles per hour - and lost control of the car ''for unknown reasons''.

However, the report also states neither Roger, 38, nor Walker, 40, had alcohol, cocaine, marijuana or other impairing drugs in their systems.

Filmmaker James Wan is returning to the horror genre.  While the director behind Saw and Insidious hit a high mark with last year’s terrific The Conjuring, he subsequently opted to try his talents outside the horror genre by taking over the Fast & Furious franchise.  Fast & Furious 7 proved to be an incredibly tough shoot due to Paul Walker’s unfortunate passing in the middle of production, with Wan recently tell ...

James Wan to Direct ‘The Conjuring 2′

Oct 21 2014 12:29pm CDT | Source: slash film

Last night the news broke that New Line had pushed The Conjuring 2 out of 2015 and into an un-dated 2016 release window. We wondered if that had anything to do with the success of Annabelle, and if New Line might be thinking of making more spin-off movies based on the Warren case files, instead of doing a proper sequel. Turns out we were totally wrong — the delay is so that New Line could accommodate the Conjuring 2 director: a returning James Wan.  You migh ...

Since The Notebook quotes have become almost iconic since the film arrived in 2004, a wider audience that treasures that sweeping decades-spanning romance have waited for something from Sparks’ books to leap to the big screen that at least comes close. They have it with The Best of Me. It is by far the best page-to-screen effort from t ...

Back in 2004 Eric Heisserer was just a normal guy who liked a good scary story.

This collection would eventually be known as The Dionaea House, and its viral popularity eventually landed Heisserer a movie deal at Warner Bros., though the st ...

Sep 26 2014 8:57pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

If we had to choose one movie car to spend a few hours with it would have to be the Tumbler. Though the 1970 Dodge Charger driven by Vin Diesel in several of the Fast & Furious films would come a very close second. The brutal looking, ear-popping loud muscle car is the focus of “The Aficionauto” hosted by Christopher Rutkowski. Driven by Paul Walker in F&F 5 and set to return in Fast & Furious 7, the blacked-out ...
