‘Fast & Furious 7′ Scrapped a Drag Racing Scene Out of Respect to Paul Walker

Fast and Furious 7 has officially wrapped up shooting, having been delayed after the death of Paul Walker. Out of respect for him, TMZ is reporting that producers of the franchise decided to scrap a climactic drag racing scene toward the end of the film.

Sources connected with the production tell TMZ … the shoot was being prepped at the Willow Springs International Raceway near Palmdale — 45 minutes from where Paul Walker tragically died.

Members of the crew tell TMZ … producers brought in drivers who are “authentic street racers” for the scene, where a souped-up yellow Chevelle races another car and dramatically pops a wheelie, as bystanders stand right by the track and cheer. A similar scene appeared in the first F&F.

… the word circulating among the staff is that [the studio is] extremely cautious because of what happened to the star of their movie. They believe a second crash — even though Paul’s was not film-related — could jeopardize the entire franchise.

Well… yea. The movie is still slated for an April release date.
