Paul Walker's brother asked to finish off remaining scenes of Fast & Furious 7

Vin Diesel has reportedly approached Paul Walker’s brother, asking if it would be possible for him to perform the character of his brother in upcoming Fast and Furious sequels.

Paul Walker, the Fast & Furious superstar who met with a tragic and untimely end, is sorely missed. Now remembered for his role in Fast & Furious, where he last featured in the FF7, saying good-bye, it seems the character will be making a comeback in the future.

It seems that the movie makers have been thinking of what to do to fill Paul’s part. ETOnline now reveals that Vin Diesel has approached Paul Walker’s brothers – Cody and Caleb, to step into his shoes and help in filming if the need arises in the future.

Cody Walker, 25 is no novice to the movie industry, having previously worked as a movie stuntman. In fact, both brothers had stepped-up and helped Universal Pictures in completing the shoot of Fast and Furious 7.

“I had a phone call with Vin for about an hour and we really discussed this a while back. He wanted [our] blessing,” Caleb said, adding that Diesel asked if and when they thought it “would be acceptable to maybe bring Paul’s character back… to really kind of let his fans know he’s still out there.”

“Universal wants to make sure to be respectful of Paul and his image too, and his family,” Cody added.
