When The Fast and the Furious star Paul Walker was tragically killed back in 2013, a little piece of the fan-favorite franchise died along with him. In many ways, Walker was the heart of the franchise, and when his untimely death left the fate of one of the films in jeopardy, his brothers stepped in to help complete his character’s legacy.
Caleb and Cody Walker helped finish off the storyline for Walker’s character Brian O’Conner in Furious 7 by stepping in as body doubles for their beloved brother. Afterward, the studio worked its movie match to superimpose Walker’s face onto his brother’s bodies thus completing the final scene where O’Conner rides off into the sunset, alive.
In the film installments since, Walker’s character has been mentioned at least twice solidifying the fact that the character remains alive in the film franchise. Caleb and Cody spoke with the Associated Press recently while promoting the touching documentary I Am Paul Walker which celebrates the life of their brother, a beloved actor and humanitarian. In their interview, they both said that, if done appropriately, they hope to get to bring Walker’s character to the big screen once more. Caleb Walker said:
“I just hope we get to — I don’t know — have a little cameo and bring Paul back to save the day and I get to help create that again. That’s my dream and I hope we get to do that in one of the future movies.”
