EXCLUSIVE: Paul Walker’s Brian O’Conner Character Will Return in ‘Fast & Furious 9’

Published

on

Paul Walker’s Tragic Passing

The cast, crew, and Fast & Furious fandom was shaken to its core on November 30, 2013 (almost six years ago!) when Paul Walker was killed in a car crash. Walker had yet to finish filming the seventh installment of the Fast & Furious franchise, Furious 7. His work was famously completed, however, with the use of cutting edge CGI and the help of his brothers Cody Walker and Caleb Walker.
Furious 7 director, James Wan and Universal Pictures were presented with some difficult choices about how to proceed after the death of Paul Walker. It was the conscientious of the cast and crew as well as Walker’s family that the best way to honor Paul’s death would be to continue the franchise that he had poured so much into.

Wan and company elegantly managed to tweak the film and give Walker’s on-screen character, Brian O’Conner the sendoff he deserved as well… literally driving off into the sunset, retiring from the team to be with his family.
O’Conner was mentioned in 2017’s The Fate of the Furious as a viable person to contact about Dom Toretto’s (Vin Diesel) betrayal, but it was decided that they wouldn’t include Brian because of their promise to respect his retirement.
It looks like the team (and Universal) have had a change of heart, however.
A source close to FandomWire, with inside knowledge of the Fast & Furious 9 production has revealed that they are currently casting a Paul Walker double.

What This Means?

It should be noted that O’Conner’s inclusion would be in a very limited capacity. Nothing more than a flashback or cameo. They managed to flawlessly recreate Paul Walker’s likeness for Furious 7, but that was limited to only a handful of shots.
The studio, cast, and crew have been nothing except respectful to Paul Walker’s memory in regards to how his character and legacy has been handled. If Universal Pictures has indeed decided to incorporate Brian O’Conner in Fast & Furious 9, it is safe to say that it will be to serve the story and the world that Walker helped build, as well as, respect the memory of Paul Walker himself.
Fast & Furious 9 is set to hit theaters on May 22, 2020. Justin Lin is returning to the franchise as director. Lin previously directed The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, Fast Five, and Fast & Furious 6.
Vin Diesel will reprise the role of Dominic Toretto. Returning cast members include Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Helen Mirren, and Charlize Theron. New additions to the cast include John Cena, Finn Cole, Anna Sawai, Vinnie Bennett, and Michael RookerDo you think Fast & Furious should bring back Paul Walker’s character?

Michelle Rodriguez Change from childhood to 2019 (Then and Now)

Published

on

Michelle Rodriguez – american actress, screenwriter, and DJ. Rodriguez spent her childhood shuttled between the Dominican Republic, Texas and Puerto Rico. She landed her first role in the film Girlfight after beating out 350 other hopeful actresses who auditioned for the lead. Rodriguez endured months of intense physical training in preparation for her role as the angry and fearless Diana Guzman. It paid off—the role garnered her rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. She also won the Gotham Award for Breakthrough performance. Roles in the telefilm 3 A.M., opposite Danny Glover and Pam Grier, and feature films The Fast And The Furious starring Vin Diesel and Paul Walker and Resident Evil (2002) followed.

In 2005 she joined the cast of the hit ABC series Lost, playing tough girl Ana-Lucia Cortez. While in Hawaii shooting the series, Rodriguez was arrested on a DUI. The incident violated her California probation for a hit and run DUI and driving with a suspended license.

She served 65 hours out of a five day sentence behind bars in Hawaii, and was due to serve 60 days in jail in California, but spent just over four hours there before being released due to overcrowding. Her bout with the law didn’t hurt her career, however, as she landed a starring role in James Cameron’s mega-hit Avatar (2009), then she had the opportunity to return to the Fast & Furious franchise with Fast & Furious 6 (2013).

She also starred in Machete Kills(2013) alongside Danny Trejo and Sofia Vergara, and Furious 7 (2015) alongside Vin Diesel. Michelle’s latest credits include the action thriller The Assignment (2017) with Sigourney Weaver, the animated comedy Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) with Julia Roberts and Joe Manganiello, and the action thriller The Fate of the Furious (2017), in which she reprises her role as Letty ‘Ortiz’ Toretto alongside Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson.

Paul Walker’s Daughter Awarded $10.1 Million In Lawsuit Over His Death

Published

on

The 19-year-old reached a settlement with the estate of Roger Rodas, the driver who was also killed.Meadow Walker, the 19-year-old daughter of actor Paul Walker, has been awarded $10.1 million in a settlement with the estate of Roger Rodas. Both Rodas and Walker died when the Porsche Carrera GT Rodas was driving crashed and exploded Nov., 20, 2013.

”The amount paid by the estate of Roger Rodas into a trust for Meadow Walker only covers a fraction of what her father would have earned as an international movie star had his life not tragically been cut short,” Meadow’s lawyer Jeff Milam said in a statement to People on Thursday. “Through his estate, Mr. Rodas, the driver of the car, took partial responsibility for the crash. Meadow’s lawsuit against Porsche AG — a $13 billion corporation — intends to hold the company responsibly for producing a vehicle that was defective and caused Paul Walker’s death.”

On Monday, a judge ruled that there was not enough evidence to prove that Porsche was responsible for the crash in the lawsuit brought by the Rodas estate. However, Meadow’s lawyer says that ruling has no impact on his client’s case against the car company.”The issues in the cases are very different,” Milam said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “The federal case was filed on behalf of Roger Rodas, who was the driver of the Porsche Carrera GT and was killed instantly upon impact. Meadow’s father, Paul Walker, was a passenger in the car. He survived the crash but was trapped and burned to death because of the vehicle’s defects. A significant portion of the judge’s decision was based on his rejection of evidence because of missed deadlines and also a failure to sue Porshe AG, the manufacturer. Meadow will continue the fight to hold Porsche accountable for selling a defective product that kills.”PAUL WALKER

Daughter’s Lawyer Says PORSCHE’S VICTORY IS IRRELEVANTPorsche will have to pay up dearly in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by Paul Walker’s daughter, despite the car company’s win against the driver’s widow … so says Meadow Walker’s lawyer. Attorney Jeff Milam tells TMZ, Porsche’s big victory will have no impact on Meadow’s case … for several reasons. First, a federal judge ruled against Roger Rodas’ widow, and Meadow has filed in a different legal system … L.A. County Superior Court.

The federal dismissal has no bearing on Meadow’s case. Even more important, Milam says Rodas was killed instantly upon impact, adding, “Meadow’s father, Paul Walker, was a passenger in the car. He survived the crash but was trapped and burned to death because of the vehicle’s defects.” TMZ broke the story, the judge in the Rodas case ruled the claim that the fuel cell was compromised in the crash is irrelevant, because it has nothing to do with the cause of his death. Meadow’s lawyer is claiming the fire was the cause of Paul’s demise, and he’d still be alive were it not for a defect in the cell. Milam says, “Meadow will continue the fight to hold Porsche accountable for selling a defective product that kills.”
