Paul Walker's brothers Caleb and Cody will fill in for the late actor on Fast & Furious 7.

A statement from the movie's producers announced this week that Paul's siblings have agreed to help complete the star's scenes following his death last year.

"We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul's brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our FAST family. Caleb and Cody are helping us complete some remaining action for their brother and fill in small gaps left in production. Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too," it read.

Father-of-one Paul was just 40 years old when he was killed in a car crash on 30 November 2013. He was a passenger in a sports car driven by a friend that exploded into flames when it hit a post in Los Angeles.

The movie's statement continued: "Our family experienced an unthinkable shock in November. We had to take time to grieve Paul, the brother we love and lost, and to figure out if we should move on with our film.

"We came together and all felt the only choice was to continue. We believe our fans want that, and we believe Paul would want that too. Paul had already shot his dramatic scenes and most of his action for Fast & Furious 7, and it's among the strongest work of his career.

"We are just under a year away from the release of Fast & Furious 7, and this film is the most important we've ever done together. It will allow the character of Brian O'Conner to live on and let us celebrate Paul in his most defining role."

Paul played undercover agent Brian in the franchise, which co-starred Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez.
