Paul Walker’s brothers will stand in for the late actor in small action scenes needed to complete the upcoming Fast & Furious 7.

“We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our FAST family,” read a statement on the movie’s Facebook page.

“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,” noted the statement.

Computer graphics will be used to alter any discrepancies between the brothers’ bodies and Walker’s, according to The Wrap.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, the film went on hiatus in the aftermath of Walker’s fatal car crash last fall.

The films’s Facebook statement added, “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.”

Fast & Furious 7 is scheduled to open April 10, 2015, with Vin Diesel vowing to make it the best in the series.
