The release of Fate of the Furious, the eighth installment in the Fast and Furious franchise, is nothing short of a box office sensation – overtaking Star Wars: The Force Awakens record as the highest-grossing opening of all time. Yet the franchise very nearly stopped part-way through the filming of the seventh installment, when Paul Walker, one of main leads in the films, tragically died in a car accident.
How did the franchise, the cast and crew, and Paul Walker’s family survive and find new motivation to push on and hit new heights? Paul’s younger brother Cody Walker tells FIB the whole story of continuing his brother’s legacy on and off-screen, with a good dose of his trademark Walker charm.
