Please don't do that.
It already is - Han was murdered....
Exactly.. it was apparently always planned to be a revenge movie. I heard today about the passing of Walker and while it may be tactless to speculate so soon i believe they have a good opportunity to get even more drama out of it because Walker was a central figure of the franchise apart from Diesel.

Obviously the movie will be quite different now and it remains to be seen how the official reaction will be and what they decide to do for FF7.

RIP Paul

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

I can see it playing out as originally filmed but with Brian dying in or just before the climax, and Dom going all out to end it. It would make little sense to write him out early and waste the footage already in the can. This is his last movie - give him as much screen time as possible...

This all assumes, of course, that enough footage featuring Walker was in the can that a coherent story could be created from the pieces. Production has shut down for the moment while it is being determined what to do going forward. A re-write is certain, although who knows if it will be a significant one or simply minor.

And Harvey and others are correct; it all depends on how much is in the can, and from which parts of the movie, which is info we obviously don't have yet.

To me it's not creative, it's just jarring. The Fast & Furious movies aren't comedies or mind-benders where you can switch out faces. It would look like a mess not a tribute.

It worked really well for The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus after Heath Ledger's death.

^ I haven't seen the movie but from what I've read, it's a heavily stylized fantasy that was able to take advantage of having different actors play one character. That's not the case for a grounded action movie.

They could always have the character end up getting hurt and needing reconstructive surgery to explain any differences in appearances after recasting...


I wonder if they will bring back Han after this, as there were already rumors on the net he wasn't actually dead.

^ It would obviously not be ideal. But if the alternative is heavily re-writing the movie and re-shooting key scenes, would that really be better? Like I said, it depends on what they've got in the can. But I could accept a substitute like Pine in the role. The show, as they say, must go on.

As his last film I hope he can be included in it. But if a majority of his scenes were incomplete I can't see what they can do. Recasting mid way through the movie just won't work.

What if they use the action scenes that he filmed up to the point where he filmed the non-action scenes as well, and then Dom gets a phone call and answers it and then we cut to him telling the rest of the crew that Brian is going back to be with his family.

Universal may have to scrap the film as shot, and go back to the drawing board. In that case, insurance would pick up the extra cost of production.

It would be a shame if one of Walker's last performances couldn't be included, at least in part. Time will tell.

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

I would be utterly shocked if they threw out half of a mega budget movie. Can't they just do some reshoots to remove Walker from the scenes they don't want him in? I would imagine the tasteful thing to do would be to keep him on the sidelines with his family in the opening scenes and not contributing to the action plot, and then you can just excise his scenes as shot.

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

It really depends on what exactly was filmed. If it was random scenes that make no sense together than they have to start over. However I really hope they try to do anything to show the last bit of the role that made him famous.
