There are rumors circulating that the younger brother of Paul Walker, Cody Walker, will reprise the character of Brian O'Connor in Fast & Furious franchise. Canadian star Justin Beiber was also thrown out there as possible replacement for the late Fast & Furious star, but little did everybody know that the next installment of the Universal Studio film could feature stars such Rihanna, Halle Berry and Taylor Lautner.
According to Auto World News, Fast & Furious stars Ludacris and Tyrese Gibson all wanted to have the 46-year old Berry as a new member of their F&F family. Ludacris said the former Oscar winning actress will be a great surprise for the franchise while Gibson believed Berry is good fit to big franchise type movies.
"I have no idea, but I'm hoping for Halle Berry, but we'll see what happens. (The crew) always seem to surprise even us sometimes," Ludacris said according to HNGN during an interview "On Air with Ryan Seacrest" show Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Taylor Lautnner, Halle Berry To Likely Appear in Next Installment" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">via Auto World Sports.
"She does these big franchise type movies," Gibson said according to HNGN on Auto World Sports. "We've seen Jordana pregnant, she's pregnant right now. We could really make use of Halle Berry in this movie. Give me some of that Halle Berry bottom lip c'mon."
Lautner, the star of the upcoming sequel to the highly-successful Grown Ups franchise, also wanted to be part of the Fast & Furious crew, if given a chance.
"Nothing is official as of yet, but people in his camp are grooming him for a potential role, we hear they're looking into meetings on the subject. And let's face it, we all know he would be perfect for it!," Hollywood Life reported.
Meanwhile, The Daily Mail reported the producers of Fast & Furious franchise had a series of meeting as they attempt to save the sixth installment of the movie. There were rumors that Bieber could fill the role of Walker, but they soon come up with a plan to put Paul's almost identical brother as his replacement.
"Producers had a string of meetings right after Paul's death... They 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 and if it's a shot they need Paul's face in close up they can CGI it later on," the Daily Mail.Uk
