CGI and voice-effects, along with body doubles, may be used in scenes for Paul Walker's in "Fast and Furious 7".
A source told the New York Daily News that the director of the movie James Wan has hired four actors with bodies very similar to Walker's physique and they will be used for movement and as a base.
The source said that Walker's face and voice will be used on top using CGI.
The Hollywood Reporter had earlier reported that Universal will use existing footage and screenwriter Chris Morgan worked on revisions that included retiring Walker's character instead of killing him off in the film.
