Can't they just let the man rest in peace?
The closing scene of "Furious 7" depicted Paul Walker’s character, Brian O’Connor, parting ways with the street racing/criminal scene by driving off in his white Toyota Supra on a separate road away from his best friend, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel). This seemed like a fitting way to not only close off the story of Brian O’Connor, but also an appropriate way to say goodbye to Walker himself who was tragically killed in a horrific car accident nearly two years ago.
As brokenhearted as Walker’s fans may have been to see Brian O’Connor written out, the movie's final scene definitely gave many a sense of closure to the actor's heart wrenching saga.
In spite of this closure, a recent interview with Fast And Furious actress Jordana Brewster, and a subsequent report by Australia Network News, seem to indicate that Brian O’Connor could potentially make a return to the screen in the upcoming Furious 8, the start of the final three-film trilogy. There have already been reports that Furious 8, scheduled for release on April 14, 2017, will be a tribute to Paul Walker. However, Australia Network News reported that should Jordana reprise her role as Mia, Walker’s character could potentially return through the use of CGI by using similar methods done for Furious 7 (i.e. body doubles, recycled footage). Do you think this will actually happen?
