Brian O’Conner’s last ride might not have been in Furious 7.
After Paul Walker’s untimely death in 2013 while being a passenger in his Porsche Carrera GT, his brothers Cody and Caleb stepped in to help finish filming his role in the most recent Fast and the Furious movie. That entry in the series finished with a touching note to Walker and his character and it was widely believed that meant the end of O’Conner as we know it.
But that might not be the case after all. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Paul’s brothers revealed that Vin Diesel has been in contact with them and has brought up the possibility of bringing Paul’s character back for future movies with Cody and Caleb’s help. “I had a phone call with Vin for about an hour and we really discussed this a while back. He wanted [our] blessing,” Caleb said in the interview. He also added that Diesel asked if and when they thought it “would be acceptable to maybe bring Paul’s character back… to really kind of let his fans know he’s still out there.”
“Universal wants to make sure to be respectful of Paul and his image too, and his family,” Cody added.
