We previously told you that the studio planned to retire Walker's character "Brian O'Conner" following the actor's death last November and now, according to New York Daily News, a source close to production is revealing just how that will happen. Production was about halfway through when the actor lost his life in a tragic car accident and instead of killing off his character in the film, production has reportedly hired four body doubles that will stand in for Walker and will utilize computer imagery to put Walker's face on the doubles. Though this decision may be controversial, the source says the studio is confident that fans will be satisfied with the results. A similar process was utilized on 1994's The Crow when star Brandon Lee was accidentally killed during filming. Production on Fast & Furious 7 is set to begin once again next week in Abu Dhabi following a four month hiatus, which allowed the cast and filmmakers to mourn the loss of their beloved co-star and for the studio to determine the best way to proceed.
