Body Doubles and CGI to Help Finish Paul Walker's Scenes in FAST AND FURIOUS 7

After Paul Walker's tragic death, the production on "Fast and Furious 7" was delayed until filmmakers agreed on the best course of action to finish the film. It was then decided that additional shooting and rewrites would occur, to retire Walker's character out in a graceful way.

The production is set to resume filming shortly and now we have a better idea as to how they intend on finishing the film. Reportedly Paul Walker body doubles have been hired to finish the scenes of his character Brian O'Conner.

A source close to the production stated, "They 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".

Some fans are a bit worried how the use of four body doubles and CGI will look on the big-screen. It's certainly a sticky and precious situation however they handle it. I'm just glad they are honoring Paul Walker and the hard work he put into this franchise by not removing his scenes completely.

    Some people don't like anime as much because of how serreal it is a lot of the times dark and gritty where as other animation that is more popular is light colourful with round appearing shapes this makes the characters cuter or funnier looking witch are more pleasing characteristics and these tricks make them more appealing to the viewer

    I agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.
