In the aftermath of Paul Walker‘s tragic death, there are ever more questions. One is over the fate of his final movie, Fast & Furious 7, which is the latest in his huge film franchise, and is scheduled to come out July 11, 2014.
The movie has been shooting in Atlanta, and production was paused for the Thanksgiving holiday when Paul died. The Hollywood Reporter notes that the film’s studio, Universal, held a call on Sunday to discuss how to move forward. Apparently, nearly all of Paul’s scenes had already been shot, but the film may need some rewrites to work around the future absence of his character.
While the movie may be able to proceed without Paul, there are other concerns: Will the cast be able to go right back to work today, since Paul has been in their lives since the first movie was released in 2001? And how do you market a film about cool car races and chases when your star has died in a blazing car crash? It’s too gruesome to even consider. But for right now, it looks like the show will go on without Paul Walker.
How do you think the movie studio should handle the next film? Do you think it’s in bad taste to proceed? Are you a fan of the Fast & Furious movies? Tell us in the comments below or tweet us @OKMagazine.
