Though a few days have passed since the untimely death of Fast & Furious star Paul Walker, there are still plenty of fans grieving along with the actor's close friends and family. Universal just officially announced production halt on Fast & Furious 7 following rumblings that the studio might start the sequel over from scratch, with several theories of how they would handle the leading actor's passing. But that's all business stuff. Now the studio wanted to pay tribute to their fallen franchise star with this touching video featuring clips of Walker from the entirety of the high speed action franchise. It's just a shame that he's really gone.
Here's Universal's tribute to Paul Walker by way of the Fast & Furious franchise's YouTube channel:
The studio also released this statement: "Paul Walker's family appreciates the outpouring of love and goodwill from his many fans and friends. They have asked, in lieu of flowers or other gifts, that donations please be made to Paul's charity Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW). Donations can easily be made through their website at http://www.ROWW.org/." In addition, remember that the studio is donating part of the proceeds from the Blu-Ray/DVD sales of Fast & Furious 6 (arriving on December 10th) to Walker's nonprofit charity Reach Out WorldWide. Walker founded the organization after the January 2010 Haiti earthquake, and it gathers professionals with first responder skill-sets to areas hit by natural disasters.
