Los Angeles — The seventh part of “The Fast and the Furious” film series, which is currently in the process of filming, will continue in honor of the late U.S. actor Paul Walker. The movie will be released in July of 2014, as originally planned, according to reports.
Walker, who became famous in 1999 after his role in the hit film Varsity Blues, later amassed fame when he starred in the action film series “The Fast and the Furious” film series, was killed in a fiery car crash on Saturday, November 30.
His tragic death shocked the world. The fast car slammed into a lamp post or a tree and the flame was furious, which claimed both their lives. He was a passenger of his friend’s two-seater Porsche Carrera GT in Santa Clarita, California, and was said to be attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide. The charity event was a car show to raise money for people affected by super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) which hit the Philippines in November this year. Yolanda was one of the world’s worst natural disasters that hit the world in 2013.
In addition to playing the role of Brian O’Conner in “The Fast and the Furious” film series, Walker appeared in numerous other films, including “Eight Below”, “Into the Blue”, “She’s All That”, and “Takers”. He also appeared in the “Expedition Great White” series on the National Geographic Channel.
