The makers of 'Fast & Furious 7' have decided to give late Paul Walker a proper send off by retiring his character in the action franchise.
Walker had shot almost half of the film before his death on November 30 due to a car crash.
Director James Wan, writer Chris Morgan and the studio will tweak the script and add scenes so footage of the late actor's Brian O'Conner character can still be used - but the franchise can continue, said the Hollywood Reporter.
Walker's character will not be killed off in the film, now set for release April 10, 2015.
There were speculations about how Universal was going to deal with the death of Walker, 40, who had a very important role in the franchise.
