Vin Diesel has shared a new photo on social media of himself and the late Paul Walker in the upcoming seventh installment of the Fast and Furious franchise.
Universal sent him some photos, Diesel said on Facebook, along with the movie's trailer. Naturally, he was quick to share this photo of the co-stars and friends:
"Universal came to visit, to show the trailer for FF7," Vin wrote. "Speechless... yeah, it was that INCREDIBLE! I must also say, that it was emotional and bittersweet."
"We all went above and beyond to make Pablo proud," he adds, "but man, I wish he could see what we have created and just how far we have come."
By Pablo he means Paul Walker, who died in a car accident last Thanksgiving weekend at age 40, leaving a beautiful daughter, and legacy, behind.
Even though the star's tragic death delayed Fast and Furious 7 considerably, the filmmakers used CGI and Walker's two brothers to complete it.
Paul is survived by his four siblings - two brothers, two sisters - and his teenage daughter, Meadow Walker, who has understandably taken his loss very hard.
The future of Fast and Furious 7 was very much in doubt for some time after Walker passed, but Diesel and company feel this will be a fitting tribute.
It will be dedicated to Walker's memory, as without the late actor's contributions, there would be no seventh film - or franchise in general, to put it mildly.
Sadly, when it debuts in April 2015, it will be Paul's final film, and his character Brian O'Connor will be retired from the franchise, whatever comes of it.
