Fast & Furious 7 to use CGI and doubles to keep Paul Walker in the film

One of the most popular and biggest money making car film franchises ever is the Fast & Furious franchise. The seventh entry in the franchise was filming when actor Paul Walker and a friend were killed in a car wreck last year. Since then fans of the franchise have wondered what the studio would do with Walker gone and only about half the movie filmed.

Some thought hey would simply kill off Walkers character or have the character somehow exit the franchise. Filming of the movie has resumed and word has surfaced that the studio won’t be forcing Walker's character, Brian O'Conner, out of the film despite Walker's death.

Reports indicate that the studio has hired four different actors with builds very similar to Walker's. Those actors will be used for movement and as a base. Studio sources say that Paul's face and voice will be used on top of those actors via CGI.

Previous rumors have claimed that one of the actors hired was Walker's brother. That is unconfirmed by the insider offering the tips about the four actors and CGI this time around. The finished movie will hit theaters on April 10 2015.
