The Fast & Furious movie franchise is what Paul Walker is mainly known for. Walker, who played Brian O’Conner, melted my heart the first time his baby blue eyes appeared on the movie screen. I’m a California born and raised girl, and Paul Walker is the ultimate California babe!! As a BIG fan of the Fast & Furious films I was so shocked to hear of his death and how he died…. what are the odds.

Production of Fast & Furious 7 was on a Thanksgiving break which allowed Walker to come back to California. Sources told the Hollywood Reporter that there are no plans to abandon the film. Walker already shot the majority of his scenes. However, the movie is on hold right now to allow the cast time to mourn, and for producers to figure out what they will do with Paul Walker’s character. The film is still a go but will be delayed beyond its planned July 2014 release date.
Meanwhile, producers of another Walker film said they would be moving forward with the planned December 13th release of the Hurricane Katrina drama called Hours. The film is being described as a passion project for the actor.
“After lots of back and forth, this is our decision. It’s Paul’s tour de force. He’s in every frame of the movie,” Paul Presburger of production company Pantelion told The Hollywood Reporter. “Paul would have very much wanted us to move forward. He was incredibly proud of this project. We did a press junket two weeks ago, and I remember sitting with him and how excited he was for people to see this movie. He was looking for something to showcase his acting skills, which he so rarely had the chance to do. He hit it out of the park.”
Paul Walker another one gone too soon… may he rest in peace.
