Remembering Paul Walker Tribute site for actor Paul Walker.

Brian O’Connor set to return in ‘Fast 8?’

No. Just, no.

Would you like to see Paul Walker reprise his role in the next installment of the Fast and Furious franchise? If you are confused by that question, it probably has something to do with the fact that Paul Walker passed away in a car crash in 2013. Yet, many rumors have been circulating that the studio is interested in keeping Brain O’Conner alive through CGI and stunt doubles.

During an interview on Entertainment Tonight, Caleb and Cody Walker discussed a phone call with Vin Diesel. During the conversation, Diesel apparently asked the brothers for their blessing to potentially bring Paul Walker’s character back. One question remains; Could this even be possibly?

Although, the majority of the scenes for “Furious 7” were already shot before Paul Walker passed, Cody, and Caleb, along with some digital magic, were used to fill in some of the remaining scenes. Now some have speculated that this could also be done in future films.

Co-star Michelle Rodriquez, however, wants to set the record straight. When asked if Paul Walker had a presence in “Fast 8,” Rodriguez said, “That’s a rumor, man.”

    I agree with you. My answer is NO as well. It just annoys me that this rumour or the idea just keeps circulating.

      right? The ending to the last movie was just perfect, sending his character off in a beautiful way. This would just ruin everything and I think a lot of fans would turn away from the series.
