Even though Paul Walker‘s parent’s are mourning the death of their 40-year-old son who tragically died in fiery car crash, they don’t want the actor edited out of the Fast & Furious 7, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Universal Pictures recently announced it’s suspending production on The Fast & Furious 7 “for a period of time so we can assess all options available to move forward with the franchise,” but the late actor’s parents Paul Walker Sr., and Cheryl think the show should go on.
Walker’s family “has made it known to Paul’s co-stars, that they don’t want him cut out of the movie. It wouldn’t be what Paul would have wanted,” a source close to the family told Radar.
“Paul absolutely loved being a part of the Fast & Furious franchise. His family knows writers and producers will handle Paul’s death with dignity and understanding. Of course his family is focused on Paul’s upcoming funeral, and taking care of his teenage daughter, Meadow.”
The filming of the seventh chapter in the $2 billion franchise began this past Sept., and was on a Thanksgiving break when Walker and his pal Roger Rodas perished in the fiery crash in Santa Clarita, California.
Cops believe the Porsche Carrera GT being driven by Rodas, with Walker in the passenger seat, was going over 100 mph when it crashed into a light pole and tree, and burst into flames. Walker died of traumatic injuries and thermal burns. Rodas also died of traumatic injuries.
Filming of the Fast & Furious 7 is expected to resume in late January or early February 2014.
