After rumors saying that Justin Bieber was considered as a replacement for Paul Walker's character, Brian O'Connor, in the "Fast and the Furious" 7th installment, fans gave a harsh reaction towards it.

As for the majority of fans, Bieber would not only be the worst choice but he wouldn't suit the role at all. Since the death of Paul Walker, the "Fast and the Furious" installment has been put on hold as director of the movie, James Wan is said to be rewriting the script.

All filming has been put on hold at the moment as they are trying to figure out how they would be able to rewrite the script giving respect to Paul Walker and his character as well.

New reports have showcased stating that Cody Walker, younger brother of Paul Walker will play Brian O'Connor in the "Fast and the Furious" 7th installment. The producers of the show are said to have approached the young actor since he looks very much like Paul Walker and used to be a stuntman in a few movies.

According to the dailymail.co.uk, they would need someone who looks like Walker and his brother Cody resembles him a lot.

"[Producers] soon realized they needed someone who looked like Paul to finish the movie and that's when they approached his nearly identical brother, Cody, They can shoot Cody from behind and at distance. If it's a shot they need Paul's face in close up, they can CGI it later on."

There is no news on the probability if Cody has accepted the said offer to reprise the role of his brother in the franchise. If so, fans can be sure that Cody would be doing it for his brother and for those who want to see how the producers would rewrite the movie to give honor and respect to a great actor and friend of theirs, Paul Walker.
