7. Cody Walker, Paul’s Brother May Replace Him in the Film
Previously, the Daily Mail reported that Cody Walker might be replacing Paul in the new movie.
Producers had a string of meetings right after Paul’s death. They soon realized they needed someone who looked like Paul to finish the movie and that’s when they approached his nearly identical brother, Cody.
This could definitely be a big possibility as Cody is actually a stuntman and would fit right in with all the action in the film. But, because Cody doesn’t look exactly like Paul and because he’s 15 years younger, certain adjustments would have to be made of course.
They can shoot Cody from behind and at distance and if it’s a shot they need Paul’s face in close up they can CGI it later on … If Cody agrees it’s because he wants to honor his brother’s memory.
Cody Walker’s residence is in Ontario, so he would have to temporarily relocate to participate in filming.
