November 2013, saw Fast & Furious 7 star Paul Walker die in a fiery car crash with good friend Roger Rodas, who was driving the vehicle and today the trailer for the newest in the F&F franchise shows the late star in an awesome stunt 2:21 minutes into the trailer which has been uploaded onto the Internet on November 1, 2014. The world was shocked last year, when Walker was killed in an accident on November 30. Somewhat bizarrely the late star had been the subject of a death hoax the day before and on the same day that Paul’s agent had to reassure his fans that Walker was still alive, the same man then had to announce his client’s death.
Paul Walker died in a fiery car crash November 2013 and before the year was over, news was that Cody Walker would be filling in for his brother in Fast & Furious 7, now it looks like he is out. At least according to the latest reports from sources connected with the studio making the seventh film in the popular franchise.
While fans of Fast & Furious 7 were excited to hear Cody Walker alluding to his casting in the last Fast & Furious installment on his Facebook page, it turns out that the page is fake and is not confirmation of Walker’s stepping in for his late brother. The page, which was created on Dec. 16, 2013 is not verified and contains the cryptic short message that Cody will “see you soon” in F&F.
After Vin Diesel let the cat out of the bag about the new release date of Fast & Furious 7 via Facebook yesterday, Universal studios confirmed not only the 2015 premiere date change, but they say that the Paul Walker scenes are going to remain in the finished film. The film has been on an indefinite hiatus after the death of 40 year-old Walker on Nov. 30 this year.
While the world waits to see if Cody Walker will fill in for his late brother in Fast & Furious 7 Vin Diesel announced the film’s new premiere date. The actor/director posted the information on his verified Facebook page along with a picture of the last scene he filmed with the late actor Paul Walker.
