No One Stays Dead Forever: Justin Lin Teases Return of Paul Walker's Character in Fast 10 & 11

Posted By themoviesleuth 1085 days ago on Entertainment - image courtesy Universal PicturesThe Fast and The Furious saga has played fast and loose with bringing back dead character. Both Letty and Han have both been brought back from the beyond after dying on screen. But bringing back someone that died in real life is another story. Director Justin Lin has recently teased that there's a possibility he'd bring back Paul Walker's character of Brian O'Conner for the final two films if they can recreate him on screen. While most of us might think it's tasteless in some form or another, we are completely expecting them to do so. In the crazy world of these movies, no one stays dead forever. With certain characters appearing from nowhere and teases in F9, it would be no doubt that Lin will do his best to bring Walker back digitally for the final two films.Recently, when speaking with CinePOP, Lin discussed the potential return of Brian for F10 and F11. It sounds like a CGI stand in is quickly becoming a reality for the last two films in the long running and super successful film series:"Obviously, Paul and his character Brian are the soul and heart of how we've moved forward. Bringing him back is something I think about every day. As we near the end of the franchise, it's a conversation I'm having. I think about the possibility every day."This wouldn't be the first time that an actor has been brought back from the dead for a continuation of their role. Star Wars has done it several times now. And Furious 7 used CGI and Walker's brothers to digitally recreate his character. -CG (function() { var zergnet = document.createElement('script'); zergnet.type = 'text/javascript'; zergnet.async = true; zergnet.src = (document.location.protocol == "https:" ? "https:" : "http:") + '//'; var znscr = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; znscr.parentNode.insertBefore(zergnet, znscr); })();
