2745629

The late actor Paul Walker’s brothers are helping Fast & Furious 7 producer finish the project by serving as stand-ins for the tragically late actor’s scenes.

According to TheWrap.com, Cody and Caleb will be used during selected scenes, but the graphics will be used to “mask any discrepancies between their bodies and his.”

For now, they are not planned for replacing the franchise star. Producers wrote on a movie’s official Facebook.com page, “Paul had already shot his dramatic scenes and most of his action for Fast & Furious 7, and it’s among the strongest work of his career.”

“We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our Fast family. Caleb and Cody are helping us complete some remaining action for their brother and fill in small gaps left in production. Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too…”

Production was stopped when the actor died in a car crash in November 2013. They continued filming earlier in April 2014.

Fast & Furious 7 will follow the events of the last The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. James Wan will direct the seventh film, replacing Justin Lin, who had directed the previous four films.

Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, and Lucas Black will return to their respective characters, along with Paul Walker, who passed away in a fatal car accident before the making of Fast & Furious 7 was complete.

Jason Statham, who made a cameo appearance in Fast & Furious 6, will be the villain. Thai martial artist Tony Jaa, UFC fighter Ronda Rousey, Kurt Russell, Michael Jai White and Djimon Hounsou will also join.
