Universal has a plan for “Fast & Furious 7”

Universal has finally announced what they will be doing with the “Fast & Furious 7” film in the wake of Paul Walker’s untimely death.

According to ComingSoon, Universal has already poured around $150 million into the production, and they are hopeful that they can still use most of what they shot.

Screenwriter Chris Morgan is said to be doing revisions that executives hope can retire Walker’s character from the series using already filmed plot points, and if he is successful the entire cast will return to set in January to finish filming.

If he can’t then the current version of the film could be scrapped, and would lead to the largest insurance claim in the history of Hollywood.

The $150 million would have to be paid by the studio’s insurance firm, Fireman’s Fund.

I’m really hopeful that we can see the last thing Walker worked on before he passed, and I really hope they send him off in a respectful and honorable way. ZZ1

    what’s a respectful and honorable way? they only way they can kill his character in a car crash? I’m sure they have filmed some car chase

      He doesn’t have to die for one. They could just as easily write in something about how he took his family and ran at Dom’s request (they do share a family now). I think it would be very tacky for them to kill him off in a car crash, and I don’t think the studio would be that reckless. If they kill his character it will be through some means of protecting his friends or family, but I’m going with them just saying he took off, and then they can mention his character in future films.
