This is really sad to hear.

We're not sure how we feel about this, and we're definitely unsure if this will actually happen.
"Producers had a string of meetings right after Paul’s death. They soon realized they needed someone who looked like Paul to finish the movie and that’s when they approached his nearly identical brother Cody. If it’s a shot they need Paul’s face in close up they can CGI it later on. If Cody agrees it’s because he wants to honor his brother’s memory.”
Adding CGI to the face of Paul's brother? This solution seems a little far fetched, and greatly in bad taste.
We remain pretty skeptical about this new development especially since Paul's ashes were just laid to rest at Forest Lawn Memorial Park this past Saturday.
We'll see if this approach to the newest Fast movie is actually used, but for now we hope all of Paul's immediate relatives have all the time they need to grieve.
