CGI doubles for Paul Walker to be used in Fast and Furious 7

When Paul Walker passed unexpectedly in November, a lot were wondering if CGI was going to be used to fill the void in Fast and Furious 7. There is now a report stating that Universal will indeed utilize CGI and body doubles in place of Paul Walker in certain scenes that had not been filmed at the time of his death. The report states that four actors similar to Walker's height and features have been hired to fill the void.

This isn't the first time this has happened. Ridley Scott and the production of Gladiator did the exact same thing in 1999 when Oliver Reed passed away during the production. Fast and Furious 7 is set to resume filming in April.
