'Fast and Furious 7' Director

We Will Finish Making the Movie

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.

Fast and Furious movies have been my all time favorite since the first one!!! Hearing of Paul Walkers death sure hurt my sole because I feel as if he is one of the main reasons everybody likes these movies. Rumor is someone else could possible play his role? My honest opinion is NO because he was Brain O'Conner and nobody else should have the pleasure of playing that role. The movie must go on but with Paul walker in it because it just wouldn't be right!!! His character needs to be killed off the show. That will be painful but I do believe he wouldn't have it any other way! So please take in consideration and leave his character in it and don't allow anyone else to ever play Brain O'Conner because if so I will be one disappointed fan and I will never watch the movie!!!

Asians are the smartest folks around. The movie will now probably win some sort of award for something. Mark my words...

They should rewrite the movie to have O'Connor's death in the beginning, introduce a new character (preferably a new, unknown actor like myself), and launch a plan to seek revenge for his death against Jason Statham's character. That would be a good way to honor Paul Walker

Well. Jason S's character already killed off one character in fast 6. make PW's character a poignant death beginning or mid and a basic revenge drama after.

svp veuillez gardez paul walker dans fast and furious 7 et inclure sa mort dedans le film !! faire une doublure de lui et faire une action ki le tue dans le film par des mechant puis les otre vengerons sa mort! c'est la meilleure solutions pour ne pas gacher le film et pour pouvoir continuer le film dans les prochaine années .

i think to leave the parts of brain in is a gud idea bt they of killing the character there is something to thinking a lot and put time to it ,( its a action high enery flick so as he died i think its best to give him a well entertaining exit- sorry to say so)give us the last action of brain please.... away we will miss him, dont jus kill the character
