A new report confirms that Paul Walker’s scenes in Fast & Furious 7 will involve CGI and voice effects, as well as body doubles of the late actor.
According to The New York Daily News, “They have hired four actors with bodies very similar to Paul’s physique and they will be used for movement and as a base,” an unnamed source has told them. The send-off for Walker’s character, detective Brian O’Connor, will be done using “Paul’s face and voice,” with the use of CGI, on top of the body doubles.
An earlier report indicated that Fast 7’s director James Wan, writer Chris Morgan, and Universal execs were rewriting the script to retire Walker’s character, rather than kill him off.
Production went on a hiatus after Walker’s passing, and will resume in early April.
Starring franchise leads Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, with newcomers Jason Statham, Kurt Russell and Djimon Hounsou, Fast 7 hits theatres on April 10, 2015.
Kinda creepy the way they say that...milking a celebrity even after the grave....
