Fast & Furious 7 Script Being Revised Following Paul Walker’s Death

Paul Walker attends the premiere of "Fast & Furious" at Vue, Leicester Square.

Universal certainly has a tough situation on its hands. How does the studio finish a film into which it has already sunk $150 million following the death of one of its lead actors. Not to mention the fact that said actor died in a car accident — a little too close to home for the Fast & Furious franchise, which is on its sixth sequel. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that writer Chris Morgan is already "crafting revisions" to the Fast & Furious 7 script, as  executives hope they can "retire Walker's character from the series using scenes already shot." "Almost exactly half of [Walker's] role" is in the can, and based on fan reactions, "there is support for completing the version of the movie that was underway."
