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.
