After the tragic passing of Paul Walker, the production of "Fast and Furious 7", which was already very much underway, was stopped. James Wan and team were not sure how to proceed, so they paused the production for five months. Would they start over, get a new actor to finish the scenes, or use the footage they do have and write his character off? Now it appears they have decided on their direction and will resume shooting in April.
The shoot will continue in Atlanta where the cast will embark on another "six to eight weeks" of more filming. Writer Chris Morgan has reportedly given the script a rewrite to allow for Walker's Brian O'Conner to "retire" instead of being killed off or replaced.
I personally think this is the best way to gracefully and respectfully pay tribute to Walker and keep the scenes he completed intact. It's going to be hard to see the franchise continue without him but at least we'll see him light up the big-screen one more time.
