Studio Universal is considering employing a combination of body doubles, CGI and voice effects to finish Fast & Furious 7 after Paul Walker's untimely death.

Some scenes starring the late Paul Walker are as yet unfinished, creating a significant challenge for the studio who decided that they would strive to complete the movie shortly after Walker's fatal accident.

An unnamed production source has told New York Daily News that;

They (Studio Universal) have hired four actors with bodies very similar to Paul's physique and they will be used for movement and as a base. Paul's face and voice will be used on top using CGI

Universal has refused to confirm the validity of the report. It was originally believed that director James wan would use the wealth of [Fast & Furious 7](movie:264263) footage already shot to complete the movie.

Screenwriter Chris Morgan is also hard at work creating a more sensitive exit for Walker's character. In the original script he was going to be killed off, but now he will be retired.

Walker died on the 30th November 2013 when a Porsche he was travelling in crashed and burst into flames in south California.

Fast & Furious 7, which also stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez, is now due for release in April 2015.


Do you think that Universal should continue making Fast & Furious 7?
