MOVIE NEWS – Fans of the Fast & Furious series have been wondering for a long time that the big star of the series, the character of Paul Walker, who died in a car accident in 2013, will return in the last episode.
The director of the upcoming Fast X, Louis Leterriere, cooled expectations a bit when he told Total Film that the finale from the fifth installment Apart from flashbacks, there will be no other scenes with Walker. The protagonist and producer of the series, Vin Diesel, however, gave a more nuanced answer to the same question, if not directly. “In 2013, the studio made a very bold but completely justified move to keep Brian O’Connor (Walker’s character – ed.) alive,” Diesel also said. to Total Film. “Without spoiling anything, I’ll say this much: I can’t imagine ending this saga without saying goodbye to Brian O’Conner in a dignified way.”
Diesel, referring to the “bold but justified” move, hinted that Walker has not yet been hired by the fifth installment in his scenes, he was brought to life by computer in such a way that his younger brother played the character and his face was superimposed on his figure. They ended Gladiator in a similar way, Oliver Reed died during filming, and Princess Leia returned in the same way in the Star Wars series after the death of Carrie Fisher, who played the character.
Dieseldid end up spoiling how Brian O’Connor will return, but fans certainly aren’t mad at him for it.
Fast X is such a large-scale production that it turned into two full-length movies, the first part of which can be seen in May.
