'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.

They can leave the footage they already have then have the same thing happen to Paul as it did Letty, except no return with memory loss. Love paul it won't be the same. RIP

They can keep him in the movie but universal studios would have to pay Paul's family to keep him in the movie even if he's dead

He could fake his death un be known to his friends so he can infiltrate the villains after plastic surgery, then at end of movie vin diesel character recognizes him while racing him by Paul walkers character driving style which opens up the next chapter

Keep him in it but maybe have it to where he leaves with his family to start a new life away from everything. Something along those lines. Make it a good exit and not a bad one.

As a big fan of Paul Walker and The Fast and The Furious, I believe the correct one is: Keep the footage they've already shot of Paul, and write out his character, Brian O'Conner.

Do not put Justin Bieber in this film. Keep the parts you already have of Paul Walker. Don't replace his character with someone else.

Keep it real. We all know what happened to him. So why not keep everything you already have done, take 5 minutes outta the movie an do a memorial for him. Do replace him cause then it would ruin the movie. Killing him off shouldn't be done that would be hard on friends and family. But real emotions For the cast.
