It was confirmed last week that Caleb and Cody Walker, brothers to the late Paul Walker, are lending a hand to director James Wan’s Fast & Furious 7 in an effort to give the Brian O’Conner character a fitting big screen sendoff. Today, Vin Diesel updated his official Facebook with an image of the sibling pair alongside the following special note about his departed friend and costar:
When I heard the news, I left the production, grabbed a plane and took my family and Michelle back to LA… drove directly to his parent’s house…
His Father said, Paul loved you Vin… I awkwardly and nervously said, aw come on… then he said… you don’t have to get along every second to love each other… so true.
P.s. After spending time with his biological brothers, I must say to the parents, you raised some great kids.
The film’s cast includes, in addition to Diesel and the late Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Tyrese Gibson, Tony Jaa, Kurt Russell, Nathalie Emmanuel, Djimon Hounsou, Lucas Black and John Brotherton. Fast & Furious 7 hits theaters on April 10, 2015.
