After the unfortunate death of Paul Walker in a road accident, a tribute was offered in his name in Fast and Furious 7, showing the actor taking a different road at the end of the film.
It was well-understood that the scene was a deliberate attempt to say a final goodbye to the actor as well as his character, in the movie as 'Brian O'Conner'. But now it seems that the things have changed and the franchise bosses want to bring back the character 'Brian O'Conner' at some point in the future movies.
Paul's brothers Cody and Caleb Walker, who had helped as stand-ins during the shooting of Furious 7 after Paul died, confirmed that there will be a possible return of the character 'Brian O'Conner' as the franchise wants it.
"I had a phone call with Vin Diesel for about an hour and we really discussed this a while back. He wanted our blessing," said Caleb.
Caleb also added that Diesel, had asked the brothers "if and when 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," added Cody.
However, in the end, Cody termed this as "a terrible idea" and said "I am very against it."
