Paul Walker’s scenes in Fast and Furious 7 will be completed using CGI, it has been claimed.

Walker, who had begun filming on the seventh installment in the franchise, was killed in a car crash in November last year.

Studio bosses decided to press ahead with shooting, and will complete Walker’s scenes using body doubles and voice effects.

A source revealed to the New York Daily News: ‘They have hired four actors with bodies very similar to Paul’s physique and they will be used for movement and as a base.

‘Paul’s face and voice will be used on top using CGI.’

Final scenes for the film have been shot in America in Atlanta, Georgia.

Walker played Brian O’Conner in the Fast series opposite Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto. The plot of Fast 7 will apparently see Conner ‘retire’ as director James Wan was keen to keep Walker’s scenes in the film.

Diesel recently revealed how the loss of the actor contributed to his performance in the seventh film.

On his Facebook page the Riddick star wrote: ‘The transition into that Dom state of mind has always been an interesting one. Only this time there is added pupose, a collective goal to make this one in
the series.’
