Paul Walker’s Character To Return To ‘Fast & Furious 8’ ?
One of the most favored films today, may be coming out with a sequel including their cast member that sadly passed away. Paul Walker played the role of Brian O’Conner, who was last seen in Fast Furious 7 driving into the sunset. It seemed as if this was the finale of the film serious, being as though Paul was tragically killed in a car crash in 2013. The 40-year-old actor was remembered with a tribute at the ending of the film but it was interesting that his character wasn't “killed off” being as though he will no longer be able to act in following films. Because of the tragedy, Walker’s brother, who closely resembled him was able to finish out the film for him.

Now, there are rumors circulating media that there will be a new Fast Furious coming out and his character of Brian O’Conner will also return. Paul Walker’s brothers Cody and Caleb have recently conducted an interview with Entertainment Weekly explaining how filming the roll of Brian helped them grieve their beloved brother. Vin Diesel was also said to have asked them if they would mind continuing his character to keep his memory alive.
His brothers stated:
"I had a phone call with Vin for about an hour and we really discussed this a while back. He wanted [our] blessing,"
Caleb said, adding that Diesel asked if and when they thought it "would be acceptable to maybe bring Paul's character back… to really kind of let his fans know he's still out there."
"Universal wants to make sure to be respectful of Paul and his image too, and his family," Cody added.
It will be interesting to see how his memory will be presented in the upcoming film. "Furious 8", hits theaters on April 14th, 2017, and it will be excited too see Paul’s bright blue eyes shining again on the big screen. Furious 8 is coming out sooner then thought!
