Looking at images of the late Paul Walker in FURIOUS 7, the franchise which made him a bonafide star, is as thrilling as it is bittersweet. On the one hand, we get to see his character inevitably ride off into the sunset, but on the other hand this means that we never get to see him on the big screen again. *insert teardrop*
Universal Pictures previously confirmed that Walker's brother, Cody Walker, stepped in for the actor in this latest installment (which Walker had already begun filming during the time of his death nearly a year ago). And the rest of the cast (Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges and Elsa Pataky), led by director James Wan, have reprised their roles. Newcomers to the franchise (aside from Wan, who has taken the reins from Justin Lin) are Djimon Hounsou, Kurt Russell, Jason Statham, Ronda Roussey, Tony Jaa and Nathalie Emmanuel.
The story reportedly picks up as Ian Shaw (Statham) seeks revenge against Dominic Toretto (Diesel) and his crew for the death of his brother.
