Paul Walker's family is making plans for a proper funeral ... touring the grounds of a famous L.A. cemetery looking for a suitable burial plot.
Walker was killed 11 days ago when a Porsche Carrera GT driven by buddy Roger Rodas slammed into a pole and exploded in flames.
Walker's dad, Paul Sr., and other family members went to Forest Lawn Cemetery today to finalize plans and choose a final resting place.
We're told the Walkers are planning a small funeral -- mostly family -- but it will also include cast and crew from the "Fast & Furious" movies.
No word on when the funeral will be held.

12/11/2013 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kevin Dillon tells TMZ ... the "Entourage" movie will finally begin shooting in January -- and he won't let a little thing like a BROKEN WRIST keep him from doing his job
Dillon -- who was doing some shopping in Malibu last week -- wouldn't say HOW he jacked up his wrist, but explained that it's not the first time he's suffered the injury.
There was one more thing ... we asked Kev about his truck, the one that embarrassingly broke down on him (in front of our camera) the last time we shot him out ... and he dropped an interesting fact about an unlikely HERO who saved the day. Check out the clip.

12/11/2013 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Actress Rachel True says Rolling Stone must've smoked themselves stupid ... 'cause they somehow left her movie "Half Baked" off their list of Top 10 Stoner Movies of all time!
Rachel -- who played Mary Jane Potman in the cult classic -- was doing some sightseeing around the Grove in LA ... and we asked where she thinks "Half Baked" ranks among the dankest weed movies.
Ms. Potman says she thinks the movie should at least be in the top 5 ... and was SHOCKED "Half Baked" didn't even make their top 10.
Here's the list according to RS:
1. 'The Big Lebowski'
2. 'Dazed and Confused'
3. 'Pineapple Express'
4. 'Cheech & Chong's Next Movie'
5. 'How High'
So ... did Rolling Stone get it right ... or are they smoking entirely too much reefer?
Small Family Funeral
'Fast & Furious' Crew Invited
12/10/2013 5:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Paul Walker's funeral will be private ... for family only, and in Paul's world his movie's cast and crew is part of the brood.
Sources connected with Paul's family tell TMZ ... their biggest concern is Paul's 15-year-old daughter Meadow, who is understandably having a difficult time. They don't want a bunch of strangers surrounding the girl, because she needs to feel comfortable to grieve.
So the funeral will be by invitation only, and Paul felt the folks on the "Fast & Furious" cast and crew were close relatives. He was with them a lot and bonded with most of them.
The family is also aware ... the cast and crew are grieving just like them, and the funeral will help them cope.
It's unclear when the funeral will take place. Family sources tell TMZ ... sometime after the funeral there will be a larger memorial, but still by invitation only.
CHECKS INTO Rehab
12/10/2013 6:18 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Adam Shankman -- the guy who directed "Hairspray" and several eps of "Glee" -- has reportedly checked into rehab.
Shankman's rep told US Weekly ... "Adam Shankman is currently seeking treatment in a rehabilitation center. His friends and family support him and wish him well on his journey to recovery."
The rep did not say WHY the 49-year-old is in rehab.

Shankman was also tight with "Glee" star Cory Monteith ... who died back in July after struggling with substance abuse.

Off the Hook
For Alleged Domestic Violence
12/9/2013 2:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Just like the time he was removed from the boulder ... Aron Ralston is now a free man -- and even better for him, the charges for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend have been dropped.
TMZ has learned the case against Aron -- the real-life inspiration for the movie "127 Hours" -- has been dismissed ... and we're told it's because prosecutors determined they didn't have enough evidence to convict him.
However, Aron's girlfriend Vita Shannon is still facing two criminal charges for allegedly assaulting Aron in front of their 8-month-old child.
Aron was released around 1pm today ... but his girlfriend Vita is still in custody with a $550 bond.
I Can't Teach LeBron a Thing
... About Acting
12/9/2013 12:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
LeBron James is way better than Michael Jordan ... at least when it comes to acting ... if you believe LBJ's future co-star, Kevin Hart.
If you haven't heard, Kevin and LeBron just announced they're making a movie together called "Ballers" -- LeBron plays a basketball player, and Kevin plays his brother who finally gets his chance to be a hoops star.
So, last night outside Greystone Manor we asked Kevin if LeBron really has acting chops -- in other words ... is he closer to MJ in "Space Jam" or Ray Allen in "He Got Game."
Checkout Kevin's answer in the clip. One thing's for sure ... LBJ has to be better than Dennis Rodman in "Double Team." Just awful.
I'm Not A Man...
I'm Just A Boy
12/9/2013 9:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber is whining about being Justin Bieber ... and even though he's been doing everything he can to be seen as a grown-up, he now claims he's just a misunderstood "19-year-old-boy."
JB was on the radio with Ryan Seacrest this morning to plug his new documentary, "Justin Bieber's Believe" ... which he claims will show how difficult it's been for him to go from teen star to manhood in the public spotlight.
That's odd, talking about becoming a man ... while complaining he's just a boy? Can't have it both ways, Biebs.
Justin also told Seacrest "I'm not a robot, I'm a human being" ... who sometimes pees in kitchen mop buckets.

8:10 AM PST -- According to the police report ... Ralston told cops his girlfriend punched him twice in the back of the head after he pushed her during an argument about his son with another woman.

Goldberg from 'Mighty Ducks'
He Tried to Pee on Me
... Says Ex-Girlfriend
12/8/2013 12:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The guy who played Goldberg the Goalie in "The Mighty Ducks" is accused of trying to PEE on his ex-girlfriend ... after allegedly punching her in the face ... this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.
Goldberg's ex Sonja Dimitrievska filed docs in L.A. this week asking a judge to grant her a restraining order against the 90's star -- real name Shaun Weiss -- claiming he beat the crap out of her several times during their 2-year relationship.
In the docs, Sonja says the final straw was back in April ... when she came home to a drunken Goldberg who threatened to kill her and pull her eyes out.
Sonja says she left for a few hours to let him cool off ... but claims Goldberg was in her bed holding a machete when she returned home -- and proceeded to sock her in the face.
Sonja says she ran away to hide in a nearby bedroom ... but Goldberg broke the door down and tried peeing on her while saying "this is all you're worth."
But here's where things take a turn -- Sonja says GOLDBERG called the cops ... and when they got to the scene, they arrested HER.
There's more -- the judge eventually DENIED Sonja's temporary request for a restraining order against Goldberg ... and has ordered a hearing for Dec. 17th to discuss the matter in depth.
We tried reaching out to Goldberg ... but he had no comment.

I Got Screwed Out of BOTH New 'Hercules' Movies
12/7/2013 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kevin Sorbo may be the most famous "Hercules" ever ... but the guys making two new flicks about the Greek God want nothing to do with him -- this according to the actor himself.
Sorbo was blowing out of LAX Saturday when we asked if he'd be in either of the "Hercules" movies coming out next year -- one starring The Rock, the other starring Kellan Lutz.
The 55-year old actor sadly informs our photog both sets of producers blew off his agent when they reached out to make it happen ... and it's painfully clear he's bitter about the whole thing.
Cameo or not ... Sorbo still gives his opinion on which Herc will reign supreme at the box-office.
Check out the clip for his answer.
'Fast and Furious 7' Director
We Will Finish Making the Movie
12/7/2013 9:29 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Paul 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.
