The 'Riddick' star says, 'After spending time with his biological brothers, I must say to the parents, you raised some great kids.'
The first look at Paul Walker's brothers, Caleb Walker and Cody Walker, on the set of "Fast and Furious 7" is revealed. In a new picture shared on Facebook by Paul's on-screen sidekick Vin Diesel, the siblings are seen conversing with the Dominic Toretto depicter.
The brothers are expected to play body doubles for Paul scenes with CGI used for finishing touch. "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," Universal said.
"When I heard the news, I left the production, grabbed a plane and took my family and Michelle back to LA... drove directly to his parent's house...," Diesel wrote on Facebook. "His Father said, Paul loved you Vin... I awkwardly and nervously said, aw come on... then he said... you don't have to get along every second to love each other... so true."
He added, "After spending time with his biological brothers, I must say to the parents, you raised some great kids."
Following Paul's passing, his character Brian O'Conner will be retired in this seventh installment directed by James Wan. The late actor "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," the studio said.
The movie was originally due this year, but has been moved back to April 10, 2015 after his tragic accident. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jason Statham, Ludacris, and Tyrese Gibson are among the returning cast members.
