'Fast & Furious 7' to film some actions scenes with Paul Walker's brothers

By Kyle Johnson,

Some of the remaining scenes Paul Walker had not yet filmed for Fast & Furious 7 will be finished with the help of his two brothers.

Caleb and Cody Walker will help stand in for Walker on some action scenes not yet finished as well as any scenes needing work during production, according to the film's Facebook page. The note added that on top of finishing any remaining Walker scenes the two brothers have provided everyone with some comfort as they all move past Walker's passing.

"Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too," the note said. Filming has restarted on the seventh Fast & Furious film.

Since Walker's death and the news that the film would indeed be going ahead and finishing after several months off, it was reported in March that the producers had reportedly decided to use a mixture of CGI and body doubles for any scenes Walker was unable to finish.

A source had said the plan was to use four people with similar physiques to stand in as Walker and "Paul's face and voice will be used on top of using CGI."

Whether using Walker's two brothers is a continuation of that plan isn't known.

Walker died in a car accident on Nov. 30 during a break in filming for Fast & Furious 7.
