Re: Fast & Furious 7 - Lucas Black returns to franchise
I'd think they would try to use as much of what they have shot as possible. They may even be able to complete the movie pretty much as planned with a little CGI and stand-ins used, but it would be foolish not to use this opportunity to write him out properly rather than 'off screen' between movies.
Going forward, the return if Lucas Black couldn't have been better timed...
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
