'Fast and Furious' franchise pays tribute to Paul Walker with an emotional video

On Saturday actor Paul Walker died in a car crash together with his friend Roger Rodas, who was driving the red Porsche Carrera GT.

The Fast and Furious franchise has released an emotional video to celebrate the life of Paul Walker with Diddy and Skylar Grey’s “Coming Home” playing in the background.

The red 2005 Carrera GT Walker was driving with Rodas crashed and caught fire in Santa Clarita, California and according to officials speed was the factor behind this deadly accident.

Preliminary autopsy from the Los Angeles County coroner’s office showed that Walker died from “combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries,” meaning he did survive the initial crash but died after the car caught fire.

Paul Walker was mainly known for his role as undercover agent Brian O’ Conner in the Fast and Furious films, which aired first in 2001 and since then have earned $2.3 billion worldwide. Filming for Fast & Furious 7 was almost done and it was scheduled to air worldwide in July 2014. The movie has been put on hold indefinitely, Universal Pictures announced Wednesday.

“Right now, all of us at Universal are dedicated to providing support to Paul’s immediate family and our extended Fast & Furious family of cast, crew and filmmakers. At this time we feel it is our responsibility to shut down production on Fast & Furious 7 for a period of time so we can assess all options available to move forward with the franchise. We are committed to keeping Fast & Furious fans informed, and we will provide further information to them when we have it. Until then, we know they join us in mourning the passing of our dear friend Paul Walker.”

Rest in Peace!
