When Paul Walker tragically passed away last November, he had already filmed scenes for Fast and Furious 7. After much debate, Universal decided to keep his scenes in the movie and use CGI to complete parts that he did not—a tribute to the fallen star. Now, The Hollywood Reporter writer Borys Kit has taken to Twitter to reveal that Paul Walker's brothers have stepped in to film scenes for the movie.
