'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.

I think you should use the footage you already have off paul walker. Kill off his character and bring in chad Michael Murray as his younger brother to join the team

Keep him in what you've done, and write him out tastefully, and maybe bring in a lost brother, like Mark -Paul- Gosselaar, that way you wouldn't replace the actual character...

Why dont u guys put Paul Walkers death in the movie, by having him dieing in a very serious and important race that caused his death.

Don't kill him off. Let him and his family start a new life or don't make the movie at all. I don't want too see his character die like he did. I also don't want him to be replaced

As much as they hurts all of us what you can do is that he crashes in the movie gets badly injured so he would have to get plastic serjury and you can introduce the new character that would play him but at least get someone worthy enough to play him :/

Keep what they have so far and write him out it's the best way to keep him apart of the the whole thing.He deserves to be in it he start from the begining.RIP Paul <3

I don't think he should be killed off..that would be disrespectful to his family....maybe keep the footage he had already shot and then he decides not to continue with seeking vengeance for Han..and it's Mia who talks to Dom about how her and Brian want to devote themselves to their son and be a family..so Mia's and Brian's characters are just going their way..and the guy from Tokyo Drift helps Dom seek revenge on Jason Statham for killing Han.

I think they should go ahead with the movie and use his stunt man to. Do his parts and edit him talking in the movie I think they should give all the options of what they can do with the movie to finish it and let his family decide which way to finish it with him not going to be in new ones
