Furious 7 director James Wan: “no chance we were ever going to kill off Paul’s character”!

Warning: Contains Spoilers.

Fast and Furious 7 director James Wan has spoken about his decision not to kill off Paul Walker’s character, Brian O’Conner.


Fast and Furious 7 was released yesterday in cinemas across the United Kingdom and TwitCelebGossip had early access to watch a screening before its big release.

The ending was a perfect send off to the late Paul Walker who sadly died in a car accident half way through filming Fast and Furious 7.

Not only did Furious 7 director James Wan and Universal Studios decide to finish off the movie as a tribute to Paul Walker, they didn’t kill off Brian O’Conner – instead they gave him a tearful send-off.

James Wan told BuzzFeed News: “All of us within the team felt that there was no way, no chance in hell we were ever going to kill off his character in this movie,

“And I’m glad the studio and the producers felt that way, because if they had gone down the other path, I think I would have refused to finish making this movie.

Wan continued: “I would have said, ‘You guys can make this without me.’”

Fast and Furious 7 is showing in cinemas across the United Kingdom – make sure you go down and watch it, it’s a faultless tribute to Paul Walker.
