It is always quite a spectacle when a new Fast & Furious film comes out and the next one could just cause quite a stir. It appears that the character of the deceased Paul Walker returns in the ninth film of the franchise.

“Paul’s character Brian had a wonderful farewell that cannot be used to earn more money”

Brian O’Connor, the character of Paul Walker, could just return in Fast & Furious 9 . The actor died in 2013 at the age of 40, after which his brothers Cody and Caleb took over his last scenes in the seventh edition of the franchise. The producers of the new film would be looking for someone who could fill Paul’s shoes, is reported on Twitter. “I am not sure how I feel about this,” said source Daniel Richtman. 

The fans of the Fast & Furious films are certainly not happy with this. “This would undermine the end of Fast 7 and Paul himself. Outrageous,” says one enthusiast. “Paul’s character Brian had a wonderful farewell that should not be used to earn more money,” says another. Brother Cody has hinted before that he might fill his brother’s character. “I think anything is possible and we’ll see what happens in the future,” he told Metro . 

Furthermore, little is known about the next installation in the film series, although Vin Diesel hints about the progress on Instagram almost every week. Fast & Furious 9 should be released in 2020. A spin-off from the series recently appeared. Watch the video below to find out everything about it.
