Re: Fast & Furious 7 - Lucas Black returns to franchise

I guess what I'm thinking of is a car chase with five different cars driven by five different heroes... how hard would it be to cut out one of the cars?

Re: Fast & Furious 7 - Lucas Black returns to franchise

^ Probably very complicated. As the second-biggest character, you can bet his car is a major part of most action scenes, making flat-out erasing it impossible, and if you tried to digitally insert another team member in his place, you'd have to then fix wherever said member was originally in the sequence - not to mention the awkwardness of Brian's car suddenly being driven by the wrong person for no apparent reason, something the audience for these movies is likely to pick up on. Then you probably have to reshoot the dialogue scenes on either side of the sequence.

Also remember that Brian brought in at least half the team. Roman (Tyrese) and Tej (Ludacris) are there because of him, and Mia is now more defined as his wife and child's mother than she is Dom's sister. So, counting him, that's four team members tied primarily to him; with Vince and Gisele and Han gone, the only one Dom really brings to the group is Letty, and that barbecueing jokester duo not seen since Five. So if the studio can indeed recoup the production costs and start from scratch, it's not at all hard to see why they'd be tempted to do so.

Production is now officially shut down until they know how to proceed.

Universal put up a Paul Walker tribute video, but it only uses Fast and Furious movies and comes across more like a commercial.

Just finished watching the first one on DVD. It still holds up.... sorta. I may have to pick up the others as they were movies I enjoyed but just never really collected.

Re: Fast & Furious 7 - Lucas Black returns to franchise

I can see a total rewrite along the lines of 'using everything of Paul we have in the can, what film can we make ?'.

The general direction of the film will remain the same, but the route may change somewhat...

If they're going to start completely over, maybe the best thing would be to write a direct sequel to the film they were originally going to make and use the first script as background.

That way they can use any footage of Walker/Brian they have as flashback.

That could work really well.

What if you use the action scenes he filmed, and then at the point where the footage runs out... Dom gets a phone call, has a one sided conversation, then tells the group that Brian is going back to take care of his wife and child and wishes them the best of luck.

They will probably kill off his character. Send him out in style - 'I'm off home now, bye' seems a rather underwhelming send off...

Isn't it in poor taste to kill him in the movie, though? Isn't it better to retire the character in a happy family life?

I dunno, killing him off in the movie would give the characters an on-screen chance to "send him off." Just as long as he doesn't die in the movie by car-crash.

No offense, but that is literally a worse idea than swapping in a muppet of Brian for his unfilmed scenes.
