See Paul in action for the last time in the Furious 7 trailer


The trailer for the latest movie in the Fast and Furious franchise was released on Sunday, giving fans a peek at how the cast and crew have managed to finish the movie without one of their stars.

'It would be a tribute to Paul that Cody carries on the Walker name'

Paul Walker, who played Brian in the series of films, died in a car accident on 30 November last year, having only shot a handful of his scenes.

The rest of the film was completed using special effects and with Paul's brother Cody standing in for him where possible.

Cody did such a great job that he's reportedly set to secure a recurring role in the hit box office franchise.

A source told the MailOnline: “Paul’s character Brian O’Conner will be seen retiring, while his younger brother will join the crew."

"Of course, Cody isn’t a replacement for Paul in any way, but the producers were really grateful that he stepped in to help them finish this last film and Cody is so likeable and charming. It would be a tribute to Paul that Cody carries on the Walker name in The Fast and the Furious movies.”
