Los Angeles - Paul Walker will be "represented" in Fast and Furious 8

The late Hollywood actor - who died at the age of 40, after a tragic car incident in Santa Clarita, California, in 2013 - is going to be featured in the eighth film in the blockbuster franchise in "some form or another", NBC Universal vice-chairman Ron Meyer has announced. 

Asked if Paul's character Brian O'Conner will be in the movie, Meyer said: "Paul won't be in it, but he'll be represented in some form or another, but whether his image is in it, I can't tell you yet, but he won't be in the film as a performer, as an actor, the way we did it last time."

In Fast and Furious 7 Paul's image was shot using CGI and his younger brother, Cody Walker, 27, played the body double of his character Brian O'Conner.
Universal's Ron also promises the film will be much-like the other films without Paul.

He added: "It will still be Fast and Furious, it will just be without Paul."

Elsewhere, actor Vin Diesel - who reprises his lead role as Dominic Toretto - teased that the upcoming movies will be a lot darker and this will be brought out by Straight Outta Compton director Gary Grey.

Vin told Variety: "We have a director who is going to bring the darkness out and bring out the character."

Fast and Furious 8 is expected to be released on 14 April, 2017.
