Fast & Furious actor Paul Walker and his sudden demise in the gruesome car accident on November 30, 2013, left fans heartbroken. While the actor was then filming for the seventh installment of Fast & Furious series, his departure from the film was gracefully executed by the makers with him literally driving off into the sunset, retiring from the team to be with his family. After the O’Conners mention in the 2017 film The Fate Of The Furious, seeking help about Dom Toretto’s betrayal, the makers had decided that they wouldn’t include Paul Walker in the film, as a respect to him. Now, as per the latest reports in FandomWire, a source revealed that the production has disclosed that they are currently casting a Paul Walker double for the upcoming 2020 film Fast & Furious 9.
