The death of Paul Walker has cast shadows over the future of the highly successful “Fast and Furious” franchise. However, according to a Dec. 11 report by the Hollywood Reporter, executives and writers for Universal are working around the clock to salvage the seventh installment of the series.

Sources reveal that at the time of his death, Walker had shot about half of his scenes for the latest movie. Having already spent over 150 million, the studio is desperate to use the footage that has already been shot. Jeffrey Kirschenbaum has been assigned to the task of finding a solution for the franchise, and is working around the clock to find an elegant and appropriate send off for Paul Walker’s character.

However, if the studio is unable to find an appropriate solution, then they will be forced to restart production from square one. If this occurs, then the film’s insurance underwriter may be responsible for reimbursing the studio for the 150 million that has already been invested in the project.

Studio executives are wanting to restart production on the “Fast and Furious 7” in January. However, this is not set in stone, and it depends on how quickly a solution can be found for addressing Walker’s character. Yet, sources close to the project are confident that the studio will complete the franchise’s seventh installment and will probably produce an eighth.
