We still haven't gotten over the tragic death of movie star Paul Walker back in November, so we can't imagine how his tight-knit family must feel.
His younger brothers Cody and Caleb have found a noble way to keep his memory alive, by stepping in to help with his unfinished scenes in the latest Fast & Furious movie.
Paul, 40, was halfway through making the seventh installment when he was involved in a fatal car crash on Nov. 30 -- just six weeks after he acted as best man at Caleb's wedding.
Now Cody, 25, and Caleb, 36 -- who both look remarkably similar to Paul -- will help to complete the movie in his honor.
The flick, set to be released next year, will also see the return of Vin Diesel and Tyrese Gibson.
A note on the franchise's Facebook page says,
"The FAST & FURIOUS saga is about family. The characters are connected by the bond of family, and it is how all of us who have worked together for more than thirteen years feel about each other. It certainly defines how we feel about our fans.
Our family experienced an unthinkable shock in November. We had to take time to grieve Paul, the brother we love and lost, and to figure out if we should move on with our film.
We came together and all felt the only choice was to continue. We believe our fans want that, and we believe Paul would want that too. 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.
We are just under a year away from the release of FAST & FURIOUS 7, and this film is the most important we’ve ever done together. It will allow the character of Brian O’Conner to live on and let us celebrate Paul in his most defining role.
We wanted to take a moment to speak to our fans directly and thank you for the love and support you always show us as we resume our work."
We think this is the ultimate tribute to the big screen star. Will you check it out when it hits theaters? Let us know in the comments.
