Paul walkerthe brother says Diesel wine and the rest of the ‘Fast and Furious’ family made the right move by letting their character go out at sunset… and he thinks Paul would be having fun with where the franchise is these days.
We have Cody walker at Sancho’s Tacos in Huntington Beach and asked him what he thought of how ‘F&F’ honored his brother’s legacy with the 9th installment set to hit theaters.
Cody says Vin et co. did a really good job of tastefully paying homage to Paul’s character Brian O’Conner, and he thinks Paul never imagined the franchise would go this far.
As you know it … Paul is dead in a flaming wreck in November 2013. The crash didn’t happen on set, but he was in the middle of filming “Furious 7” at the time. The script for the 8th installment made reference to the character of Paul a few times.
That’s pretty cool… Cody says he was in college when the OG ‘F&F’ came out, and his brother’s movie is what Cody attributes to his own love of cars. He says people stop him on the street all the time to tell him that Paul is the reason they love cars, and he always has the same answer … “Me too !!!”
We also asked Cody about one of the original movie cars – Paul’s orange 1994 Toyota Supra – which will be auctioned later this month. Cody anticipates a huge number for the winning bid, and he tells us why Paul would think the whole sale is hilarious.
Speaking of fast cars … Cody’s FuelFest arrives in Los Angeles later this month, right before the film’s release, showcasing some of the best custom, exotic, rare and exclusive cars from around the world … live music, drifting and drag racing.
You know Paul would have loved that too.
