Paul Walker's fans are not happy with the rumor that Justin Bieber will be replacing Walker in 'Fast and Furious 7' film. According to Hollywoodlife.com, 'Fast and Furious' star Ludacris claimed that he wants his bud Justin Bieber to be the part of the adventure franchise. 

Months before Paul's death, a fake trailer of 'Fast and Furious 7' with Justin Bieber starring in it was made.  After such rumors, one of the fans Joe Childz tweeted, "If Justin Bieber replaces Paul Walker for Fast and Furious 7, I might die"

There is still no confirmation about who will replace the 40-year-old star in "Fast and Furious 7." Since the tragic demise of Walker in car accident, the makers of the film are on a look out for a main lead. Paul Walker died in a car crash on Nov. 29. Before his death he had shot a few scenes of the film. It has also been reported that makers are thinking of including Paul's death in the film as a way to pay him tribute.

Currently the production of film is on standstill. Universal Pictures issued an official statement saying, "Right now, all of us at Universal are dedicated to providing support to Paul's immediate family and our extended Fast & Furious family of cast, crew and filmmakers. At this time we feel it is our responsibility to shut down production on Fast & Furious 7 for a period of time so we can assess all options available to move forward with the franchise."

"We are committed to keeping Fast & Furious fans informed, and we will provide further information to them when we have it. Until then, we know they join us in mourning the passing of our dear friend Paul Walker," added the rep in a statement.

Though the fans are mourning the death of their favorite star, many of them posted their script ideas for "Fast and Furious 7" sans Paul Walker.

Still we have to wait for the production house to resume the making of the film before we can tell who will replace Paul Walker in the film.
