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

By Amirose Eisenbach March 24, 2014

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.
