Paul Walker's horribly tragic death in November sent several shockwaves through Hollywood.

First and foremost, his friends, family, fans, & colleagues heartbroken by the loss of a kind and talented individual.

Secondly, though, were the sobering logistical concerns. Universal Studios had to decide whether to continue the Fast movies continue without him! And, if so, how would they do it? His bright smile is the face of the franchise!

Well, the studio finally announced its plan and you'll never believe what it entails!!!!

Universal actually plans to fill Paul's shoes with his brothers, Caleb & Cody Walker! They're actually going to replace him in several key scenes that he didn't get a chance to finish!

In a statement, the suits at Universal revealed:

Paul had already shot his dramatic scenes and most of his action for FAST & FURIOUS 7, and it’s among the strongest work of his career.
We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our FAST family. Caleb and Cody are helping us complete some remaining action for their brother and fill in small gaps left in production. Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too… this film is the most important we’ve ever done together. It will allow the character of Brian O’Conner to live on and let us celebrate Paul in his most defining role.

Wow! That's AH-Mazing! When the cast and crew said they were like a close-knit family, they weren't kidding!

We wonder whether that makes the entire Walker family eligible for that year's MTV Movie Awards!?

Ha! Suck on that, Ice Cube! (Not to be confused with "suck on that ice cube!" LOLz!)

As of now, Fast & Furious 7 is scheduled to vroom, vroom its way into theaters next April. In the meantime, you can rev your own engines by reading Universal's full statement (below):

The FAST & FURIOUS saga is about family. The characters are connected by the bond of family, and it is how all of us who have worked together for more than thirteen years feel about each other. It certainly defines how we feel about our fans.
Our family experienced an unthinkable shock in November. We had to take time to grieve Paul, the brother we love and lost, and to figure out if we should move on with our film.
We came together and all felt the only choice was to continue. We believe our fans want that, and we believe Paul would want that too. Paul had already shot his dramatic scenes and most of his action for FAST & FURIOUS 7, and it’s among the strongest work of his career.
We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our FAST family. Caleb and Cody are helping us complete some remaining action for their brother and fill in small gaps left in production. Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too.
We are just under a year away from the release of FAST & FURIOUS 7, and this film is the most important we’ve ever done together. It will allow the character of Brian O’Conner to live on and let us celebrate Paul in his most defining role.
We wanted to take a moment to speak to our fans directly and thank you for the love and support you always show us as we resume our work.
