The cast and crew of James Wan’s Fast and Furious 7 likely are enduring a string of emotional days. They resumed filming weeks after the death of co-star Paul Walker, and are attempting to honor his legacy by bringing his character, Brian’s, storyline to a close. If the photos shared on Vin Diesel’s Facebook are any indication, there’s going to be a lot of "hugging it out" between unusually tough speed racers to help everyone get through this difficult time.
Vin Diesel share the above shot on his Facebook page without comment. The pic shows Diesel, likely in character as Dominic Toretto, hugging Jordana Brewster – probably playing Mia, the on-screen sister of Walker’s Brian O’Conner. We might be jumping the gun. This could just be a candid shot of two actors who have been collaborating on multiple movies over the years sharing a tender moment in a quiet neighborhood. But this earlier post also shared by Vin Diesel tips us off to the fact that we might, actually, be seeing an important bit of closure in the Fast & Furious franchise.
First, there was this sad update:
Followed by this insightful tease:
Another guess, but I wonder if the face we see in the left-hand corner of that photo belong to one of Paul Walker’s brothers, who are filling in for their departed sibling so that James Wan can complete the sequel in time for theatrical release? From what has been reported, Wan was going to use a combination of human substitutes and digital recreations to finish Paul Walker’s incomplete work in Fast and Furious 7. Do you think that’s one of Walker’s brothers?
Vin Diesel’s Facebook page remains a hotbed of information for all of his upcoming projects, from Fast and Furious 7 to Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, where he’ll play Groot. Wan reportedly is finishing up production on the latest Fast film, which will be in theaters on April 10, 2015. Swing by and say a proper farewell to Paul Walker, surrounded by gear heads and fans.
