According to a report this weekend by the New York Daily News' Confidenti@l blog, several of the remaining scenes featuring recently deceased star Paul Walker will be completed using body doubles and CGI faces. “They have hired four actors with bodies very similar to Paul’s physique and they will be used for movement and as a base,” a source told Confidenti@l. It sounds similar to what director Ridley Scott had to do when actor Oliver Reed died during production of Gladiator in 1999. Filming on Fast and Furious 7 is set to resume in April.
