FILMING THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS 7 WITHOUT PAUL WALKER
The 2015 Summer action movie The Fast and the Furious 7 faced a huge problem. Paul Walker played Brian O'Connor in five out of the first six installments of the mega popular The Fast and the Furious movie series franchise. The problem is that Paul Walker (Pictured above with Hispanic born actress Jordana Brewster) was burned alive after only filming barely half of his scripted scenes. The easiest path to take is to murder Brian O'Connor and have the role recasted right there on the spot. The hardest path to take is to hire stunt doubles for both the action scenes and the drama scenes with the use of CGI computer animation to remove the stunt doubles with cartoon animations of Paul Walker instead of his brothers Cody Walker and Caleb Walker. The filmmakers of the upcoming Summer 2015 film The Fast and the Furious 7 took the hard way and hired stunt doubles to handle both the action scenes and the drama scenes that were never filmed. Never the type of girl who would shy away from a paycheck, Jordana Brewster completed her scenes by making out with both Cody Walker and Caleb Walker the same way she made out with Paul Walker before he was burned alive in a horrible car wreck.
Vin Diesel was seen interacting with Jordana Brewster before and during the film shoot. Vin Diesel also was forced to interact with CGI animated cartoons of Paul Walker when the real deal died when he was burned alive in a horrible car wreck. Filming half of The Fast and the Furious 7 without Brian Walker was hard on him too.
Here comes the clones. Cody and Caleb Walker are the stunt doubles filming the action and the drama scenes and then replaced by CGI cartoons of their legally dead brother Paul Walker. Here we have either Cody Walker or Caleb Walker interaction with both Vin Diesel and Jordana Brewster.
The good news: Brian O'Connor doesn't die in the end of the film despite Paul Walker being burned alive halfway through the filmshoot. The bad news: Brian O'Connor retires at the end of the film. Here we have either Cody Walker or Caleb Walker walking into the sunset with Jordana Brewster and the actor playing the son that Brian O'Connor made with Jordana Brewster's fictional character in a previous film installment.
Cody Walker has been hired to play Brian O'Connor's brother and replacement in The Fast and the Furious 8. If Jordana Brewster is still employed by the series, then she'll get to make out with Cody Walker without it being replaced by CGI cartoons of Paul Walker making out with her anymore. But she'll get to make out with Cody Walker with Cody Walker getting to remain as Cody Walker.
