This may be the movie of the year for car enthusiasts.
For a lot of car enthusiasts, Steve McQueen was the ultimate icon. For modern enthusiasts, Paul Walker was the ultimate car guy, so his tragic passing in 2013 was a sad day for all of us. Walker died in November 30, 2013, at the age of 40 while riding as a passenger in a Porsche Carrera GT. The car was driven by Walker's friend and race car driver Roger Rodas, who lost control of the car at high speed. The Porsche burst into flames and we lost an automotive legend. Walker left behind a huge legacy, which will now be shown in a documentary.
The Paramount Network has announced that it's working on a documentary based on the life and tragic passing of Fast and Furious star, Paul Walker. The film is set to debut in the Summer of 2018 and will be directed by filmmaker Derik Murray, who previously filmed documentaries about John F. Kennedy Jr., Muhammad Ali, and Heath Ledger. Walker's documentary is set to feature interviews from his classmates and friends who "knew him best." The film will dive into Walker's film career as well as his lesser known passions. We assume that cars will play a big role in the movie, as will his philanthropic work.
Walker was passionate about more than just cars. His philanthropic work included protecting ocean life and providing aid to Haiti after an earthquake. This documentary will be very emotional for a lot of us, and we can't wait to celebrate the life of Paul Walker.
