Wan who is best known for working on independent horror films like “The Conjuring,” and “Insidious,” before he took- over the seventh installment of franchise from Justin Lin who has directed the last three films. This was a dream project for Wan as this marks first big budget movie and association with a Hollywood best-seller franchise. Unfortunately it was afflicted by a misfortune and obstacle in production because of Paul Walker’s sudden demise.
Ludacris recently appeared in the Ellen DeGeneres show and revealed they’re still having a hard time coping with Paul Walker’s death.
“It’s very difficult, we’re all still healing from it and there is a void when we go on set,” said the rapper in the Ellen interview. “Fast & Furious 7″ will hit theaters in April 2015.
In other “Fast & Furious 7” news, Daily Mail has reported that Cody Walker, Paul Walker’s brother who is standing in for him, will continue to be a part of future “Fast & Furious” movies. It’s not at all surprising because aside from resembling Paul, Cody is also an actor and a stuntman.
This time though, instead of playing Paul’s character Brian O’Conner, he will play a possible recurring role as Brian’s brother in the film.
“Paul’s character Brian O’Conner will be seen retiring, while his younger brother will join the crew,” said a production source to MailOnline.
Meanwhile, Cody has also broken his silence about his brother Paul’s tragic death on November 30, 2013 in Valencia, California.
“It still doesn’t feel real because sometimes, working in this industry, making films, he’d be away from his family three, four, six months at at time. My only interaction would be a phone call. I know it’s going to take a while, it’s going to take a few years before it feels real,” said Cody in the Daily Mail report.
