‘Fast and Furious 7’ Plot Details: Paul Walker’s Death Sparks Fan-Made Tribute (READ IT)
The Internet is buzzing about a fan-made plot for the movie "The Fast & The Furious 7" featuring the late Paul Walker. The 40-year-old actor was filming scenes for the upcoming movie at the time of his death.
Recently Universal Pictures, the studio behind the film, announced that production for the film was being shut down "for a period of time so we can assess all options available to move forward with the franchise," the Associated Press reports.
"Right now, all of us at Universal are dedicated to providing support to Paul's immediate family and our extended 'Fast & Furious' family of cast, crew and filmmakers," the studio said in a statement.
The movie started production in September and was on a break for the Thanksgiving holiday. Even though a large chunk of the movie has already been filmed there was still a lot that needed to be done. There have been reports that Walker was supposed to shoot a special scene following the break.
Many fans of the franchise were left wondering how "Fast 7" would continue following the tragic death. No details have been released yet but one fan came up with a beautiful way for the film to say goodbye to Walker.
"I think it would be more respectful if they wrote his death in and had the funeral in the movie," the unidentified person wrote. "Like maybe he dies in the middle of the movie. Life lost in a fiery car crash."
The fan, who posted the idea on Facebook, even included all the major characters in the plot.
"Vin Diesel tries to get to him but the car explodes. Slow motion running and crying," the fan continued. "Vin holds Mia back from trying to go near the burning car. There's no time to mourn. They must turn their sadness into anger and get revenge on the people who caused this. They must finish the mission to honor his memory. Action and racing ensues."
The fan goes on to describe how Tyrese's character is chasing Jason Statham and says "this is for you Brian" right before he crashes his car into Statham's. As the car is flipping through the air, there's a flashback to "the lunch during Fast 6. Tyrese says the prayer" and the flashback ends.
"Tyrese awakens to what sounds like Brian's voice calling his name," the fan wrote. "He pulls himself out of the car. Mission accomplished."
In the final scene, the team is seen at Brian's funeral. Each member silently places a single rose on the closed casket expect for Diesel's character. He places a set of car keys as another flashback happens.
"The team is seen walking away from the grave site," the fan wrote. "A series of brightly colored race cars lines the edge of the lawn. Each member gets in their car and drives off. One car is left sitting there. A flashback shows it is the car that Paul Walker is firs seen driving in Fast 1."
Fans of the franchise loved the idea and thought it would be a great way to honor Walker. To read the full fan-plot click here.
