Paul Walker's brothers stand in for actor’s final scenes for Fast & Furious 7 movie
Caleb and Cody Walker will stand in to play their late sibling in final scenes
''We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul's brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our FAST family,'' a post on the official Facebook page for the film read.
''Caleb and Cody are helping us complete some remaining action for their brother and fill in small gaps left in production.
"Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too.''
Asked to clarify exactly what the brothers would be filming, a source close to the production said that they would fill in for Walker during select scenes. Computer graphics would then be employed to disguise any differences between their bodies and his.
However, Caleb and Cody Walker will not be replacing Walker throughout the whole film.
Walker, who played policeman-turned-street racer Brian O'Connor in all but one of the films, had just a few scenes left to shoot in Fast & Furious 7.
A tribute was paid to the star at the MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday 13 April. During the segment, his co-stars Vin Diesel and Jordana Brewster spoke about their fond memories of the star.
"He never asked for credit or glory," Brewster said. "He was just a really good guy. His charm, wit, spirit and his beautiful smile will live because he will always be in our hearts and he will remain an inspiration to live life to the fullest."
The tribute ended with a quote from Paul Walker, which read: "When you put good will out there it’s amazing what can be accomplished."
He also posthumously won an award for Best On-Screen Duo with Vin Diesel.
"'I’m always going to be here for you even when you tell me to go',” Vin Diesel said, recalling Walker’s words to him. “That’s who Paul Walker was. The world saw his magic on screen. The world saw his philanthropic endeavours. Yet, I wish the world could have seen how special a brother he was."
The honour comes just weeks after experts at the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department ruled out speculation that the accident had been caused by a mechanical failure, saying instead it had been caused by speed and speed alone.
Police also dismissed reports that Walker and Rodas had been drag racing against a second vehicle before the incident occurred.
