Paul Walker could be replaced by a combination of body doubles and CGI for his remaining Fast And Furious 7 scenes.

The actor died in a car crash in November while he was part way through filming the seventh instalment of the car film franchise and according to the New York Daily News, movie bosses could have decided on a way of completing his final scenes.

Apparently, four body doubles have been hired as a base for his character and to provide movement, while CGI will be used for his face and voice.

Paul had appeared as Brian O'Conner in every Fast And Furious film except for the third one, and in December Universal Pictures announced that he would still star in the seventh.

Vin Diesel posted a photo of himself and Paul in the last scene they shot together on his Facebook page.

He wrote alongside it: "There was a unique sense of completion, of pride we shared ... in the film we were now completing ... the magic captured ... and, in just how far we've come ... 'Fast and Furious 7' will be released ... April 10th 2015! P.S. He'd want you to know first."
