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

If the rights can be had, I might suggest the title Fast and Furious: Vanishing Point
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanishing_Point_(1971_film)

You would have flashbacks to whatever the plot was in the unfinished film, with exposition. The film would end rather like Vanishing Point, with Walker being made a mythic hero.

This has been done before, with the movie Targets: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Targets

Footage was used from another film to great effect.

Also in the news: The internet melts down the other day when rumors start that Justin Bieber would replace Walker in the franchise.

Looks like the studio is even considering an alternate route with Walker's brother as a stand in:

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 don't think so even though because of the money we are talking about an instant gut wrenching decision. Just this summer we had the story of James Hunt willing to risk his life for that title or just to beat a horribly burned Nikki Lauda. From all reports it seems as if Paul Walker was living a fast and furious lifestyle minus the armed robberies and the risk taken could and did end in his death. It would almost a PSA to have Brian die in just an accident as a result of his hobby.

I think however rather then an accident they may combine his story with Han's. And the team goes for revenge. The question then becomes will O'Conner be killed before Dom travels to Japan to meet the Drift King or after as a team member lost during the mission. And I guess that is dependent upon how much they have shot already.
Pretty much my thoughts. It's hard to "take advantage" of the real life death of an actor but it could serve the purpose of the movie which was apparently already a revenge story but the stakes will be so much higher when it's one of the main actors who gets killed (even though Han is my favorite 2nd tier character).

'Fast & Furious 7' Writer Working on Fitting Send-off for Paul Walker

Sources tell THR that Chris Morgan is now at work crafting revisions to the script that could make use of scenes that were shot before the actor’s death.

The fiery crash that took Paul Walker's life has plunged Universal Pictures into an unprecedented crisis. Executives are trying to find a way to salvage footage already shot for Fast & Furious 7 instead of starting fresh. But experts say that either way, this tragic twist could lead to the largest insurance claim in Hollywood history.

Sources say writer Chris Morgan now is at work crafting revisions to the script that Universal execs hope can retire Walker's character from the series using scenes already shot. If he succeeds, cast and crew could be called back to work by late January -- but that's a big if.

There wouldn't be a meltdown if it ended like this.

It's been circulating around the internet but it's only a fan-made poster.

Yeah, interesting fanwork, but they got the car wrong at the bottom. Brian prefers a Nissan Skyline GTR to Dom's Charger.

If that was the real poster it would have been in pretty poor taste... seeing as how that car is going off the road...

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

Paul Walker's missing scenes to be done via CGI and body doubles:

http://www.aintitcool.com/node/66645

“They have hired four actors with bodies very similar to Paul’s physique and they will be used for movement and as a base,” one source close to production tells us. “Paul’s face and voice will be used on top using CGI."

This sounds like an incredibly creepy and morbid idea and I can't imagine this won't look horribly fake...

They did it in The Crow.

And they do it all the time when actors are not available.

I sincerely hope this is executed to the very best limits of the technology - or yes, creepy and morbid is right.
