'Fast and Furious 7' Director

We Will Finish Making the Movie

12/7/2013 9:29 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

120713_james_wan_launchPaul Walker's death may have put a halt to production on "Fast and Furious 7" ... but last night the movie's director told us there are absolutely no plans to abandon the flick.

A somber James Wan was leaving LAX when he told us how the cast and crew are holding up after Paul's death a week ago ... and assured us 'F&F 7' is still a go.

Wan didn't offer details on how he'll complete the movie, but there would seem to be only two options:

1) Keep the footage they've already shot of Paul, and write out his character, Brian O'Conner.
 
2) Rewrite the whole thing without Brian O'Conner and shoot the movie from scratch.

Got another idea?  Write it in the comments.

Clearly, any option will require extensive script changes, so ... it remains unclear how long Universal will have to postpone production.

Hi all Paul walker fans and family I know it maybe hard for us to watch it happen in the movies but ibelieve u should keep him the way he is in the movie and let him go out the way he would want to so fine a double and let him go out like he would want to I know it's hard for us but it's not what we want it's how he would want to go out with a blast so let his part go out the way he love driving we love you Paul walker and R.I.P will. Miss u to this day I still can't believe it

I think this should be the last one. We never saw what happened to Leon, Jesse died, Vince dies, Han dies, Letty almost died, how many more movies can they make before all the main characters are gone? If they still want to continue the franchise, they can take it in a different direction with different people.

Keep the parts they already shot and have me be his double. They say everyone has a twin and all people tell me is that my twin is paul walker even in are younger pictures, I have even been mistaken for paul walker.

A real tribute would be to show us what has already been filmed, his last work, then show behind the scenes footage and interviews with co stars. real tribute, and fans would love it.

Tom Cruise as Paul Walker brother in Fast 7? It would be great. Just an idea! But it would be loved!!

I wrote Tom Cruise on Twitter. Let's get him to join Fast 7 as Paul Walker brother. Good idea or what do you think? If so everyone start the buzz and let's see if they hear us!!

If the industry had any class, they would cancel the movie.
