Paul Walker's brothers are stepping to help finish filming on Fast & Furious 7, the film Walker was in the midst of making when he died in a fiery car crash last November.  

Caleb and Cody Walker have been enlisted to complete their brother's action scenes and "fill in small gaps left in production," Universal Pictures said in a statement published Tuesday on the film's Facebook page. 

"Having them on set has made us feel that Paul is with us too," read the statement.

Production on Fast & Furious 7 recently resumed after it was suspended following Walker's death.

The 40-year-old Walker died in a car crash on Nov. 30 outside Los Angeles along with his friend Roger Rodas. A police investigation found Rodas was driving almost 150 km/h when he lost control of the red Porsche, slamming into a light pole and tree.

Fast & Furious 7, now set to be released in April 2015, has been adjusted to incorporate the footage shot with Walker and give his character some kind of send-off.

"It will allow the character of Brian O'Conner to live on and let us celebrate Paul in his most defining role," read the statement.

Universal’s post has been shared over 7,000 times by fans on Facebook.

One fan, Jennifer Van Woert wrote of Walker: “I still cry when I see him … he had such light! Thank you Paul’s brothers for continuing that legacy.”

Others expressed mixed feelings about the decision to keep going with the movie, which they anticipated would be an emotional experience in the theatre.
