After Paul Walker’s tragic and untimely death several weeks ago, speculation has abounded that his younger brother, Cody Walker, may fill in for him in “Fast & Furious 7,” according to a Dec. 16, 2013 Slash Film report.

Production on the movie was suspended after Paul was killed in a car crash on Nov. 30 during a holiday break from filming.

A source told the Daily Mail that Cody, 25, who works as a stuntman, could be shot from behind and at a distance if he decided to take on the project.

The source added, “If Cody agrees it’s because he wants to honor his brother’s memory…”

UPI reports that Universal Pictures has not commented on whether the rumors that Cody was approached to stand in for his brother are true, but released a statement after Paul’s death saying, “At this time we feel it is our responsibility to shut down production on ‘Fast & Furious’ for a period of time so we can assess all options available to move forward with the franchise. We are committed to keeping ‘Fast & Furious’ fans informed, and we will provide further information to them when we have it. Until then, we know they join us in mourning the passing of our dear friend Paul Walker.”

According to Slash Film, should Cody take the role, it could be a very “sweet way to pay tribute to Paul.”
