“Fast and Furious 7” earned tremendous success when it hit theaters worldwide.
Fans felt like Paul Walker never left and they can give some of the credits to his brother, Cody Walker.
Now, fans are looking forward to “Fast And Furious 8” and it has been confirmed that Cody will be back!
Cody and his older brother Caleb were as vital to the film as they served as body doubles for their late brother’s unfinished scenes.
“Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too,” the Fast and Furious team said.
And for Paul’s legacy to live on, Cody Walker will be included in the “Fast And Furious 8” cast as a new character according to Daily Mail .
“The producers were really grateful that he stepped in to help them finish this last film,” a source told the Daily Mail.
“It would be a tribute to Paul that Cody carries on the Walker name in the Fast and Furious movies.” Back in November 2013, Paul Walker confirmed that an eighth film installment was already “a guarantee.” According to the late actor, Universal Studios is also looking at the possibility of a ninth and tenth film to the movie franchise.

“Well, the studio supposedly wants 8, 9 and 10.” Walker said.
“I’ll be 50. Even if 7 were to [tank], there’s at least an 8. That’s a guarantee.
The thing that’s pretty crazy is that neither Vin nor I were going back to do the third one. They were going to do a direct-to-video 4.
They were going to dispose it and be done with it. But then, Vin was like, “No, I’ll come in for a cameo,” because it wasn’t testing well. He wanted to set up the fourth one and the studio went for it, and we got a second life. It was supposed to be done already.” As of this writing, “Fast and Furious 7” broke a record in the box office.
According to CNN , the film garnered $143 million opening at the domestic box office, edging “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” record of $95 million.
Also, it is yet to be announced if all members of the crew will be returning in the “Fast and Furious 8” cast.
