The success of Furious 7 has been bittersweet with Paul Walker not here to celebrate it, but his costar and good friend Vin Diesel is making sure the late actor is still greatly part of the franchise even after his death.
“The fact that the world embraced [the movie] and allowed it to be Paul’s legacy, it’s just a beautiful thing,” he told 'MTV News.'

The popularity of the film has only raised questions about a potential eighth installment — but fans were left wondering if the cast would go on without one of their leading roles. According to the 47-year-old, it sounds like it could definitely be a possibility.
“Paul used to say that [‘Fast & Furious’] 8 was guaranteed and, in some ways, when your brother guarantees something, you have to make sure it comes to pass,” he said. “So, if fate has it — fate, F8 — then you’ll get it. ‘Furious 7′ was for Paul; 8 is from Paul.”
Vin's not the only one who wants to keep the late actor's memory alive. Just yesterday, a photo of the actors "reuniting" — Vin leaning on a car and Paul appearing like a ghost beside him — went viral.
