Earlier this week, it was revealed Paul Walker’s brothers, Cody and Caleb, will step in for their late brother to complete the seventh installment in the Fast & Furious franchise.
New details have since emerged revealing their dedication to not only their sibling, but also his fans.
According to a report, a new technique is being tested to merge archival audio footage of Paul’s voice with Cody and Caleb’s voices to fill in some of the dialogue still needed.
Sources say the production team have discovered certain words sound better coming from each brother and they are doing their best to make the experience of Fast & Furious 7 as authentic as possible for fans.
The film announced Cody and Caleb would be stepping in to film Paul’s action scenes, as he already completed most of his dramatic scenes. He portrays beloved character Brian O’Conner.
“The Fast & Furious saga is about family. The characters are connected by the bond of family, and it is how all of us who have worked together for more than thirteen years feel about each other. And it certainly defines how we feel about our fans,” a note posted on the official Fast Facebook page reads.
“Our family experienced an unthinkable shock in November. We had to take time to grieve Paul, the brother we love and lost, and had to figure if we should move on with our film.
“We came together and all felt the only choice was to continue… We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our Fast family.”
Cody eagerly shared the note on his official Facebook page and added, “Let’s make it great and make my bro proud.”
We’re sure he’ll have no trouble with that. Fast & Furious 7 is set to hit theaters April 2015.
TMZ was the first to report about the new technology.
