Malibu beach goers were amazed when they discovered Paul Walker’s brother Cody who has an uncanny resemblance with the late star . Cody was seen filming scenes for the upcoming “Fast & Furious 7” movie at Malibu beach. Read on for MNG’s “Fast & Furious 7″ update to learn more about its filming progress.

Cody Walker was seen hanging out with other members of the cast, including Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriquez and Ludacris. To fit in the character of undercover cop Brain O’Conner 25-year-old Cody sported the same hairdo as his late brother Paul. He resembled Paul so much that it was almost impossible to differentiate him from  his elder brother, according to eye-witnesses.

Almost six months after the actor’s unfortunate demise “Fast & Furious 7” has reached its culmination despite the fact that there are a few hurdles during its filming. Paul Walker’s close-up scenes will reportedly be completed using face-replacement technology by special effects company Weta. The special effects company will use three cameras to create the computer-generated face-replacement needed for the blockbuster franchises sequel.

According to Emirates247, an insider reported that the makers of the said film replaced Walker’s face with Cody’s using computer-generated face replacement technology. The source added that there is a substantial amount of gear, asserting that everything that was to be filmed with Walker gets done three times over. Using face-replacement technology has sent the film’s budget rising to approximately $250 million.

According to Emirates news agency WAM, the “Fast & the Furious 7,” has finished filming in the UAE. Filming took place at various locations in Abu Dhabi, including Emirates Palace, Al Ain City and Jumeirah Etihad Towers.

Directed by James Wang, ‘Fast and Furious 7’ will be released on April 10, 2015.
