Production is back underway on Fast & Furious 7 after a hiatus following the tragic passing of star Paul Walker, and franchise staple Vin Diesel has shared a somewhat emotional new image from the set. Director James Wan (The Conjuring) and the producers have found a way to give Walker’s character a fitting sendoff with the help of his brothers, Caleb and Cody Walker, who will act as stand-ins for scenes that were unfinished. In this new image, we see a strong embrace between Diesel’s Dom Toretto and his sister Mia, played by Jordana Brewster. Of course, Mia and Walker’s Brian O’Conner are the central couple at the heart of the Fast & Furious franchise, so it will be interesting to see how her character fits into the plan to conclude O’Conner’s storyline.
Hit the jump to check out the new Fast & Furious 7 image. The film also stars Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jason Statham, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Ronda Rousey, Tony Jaa, Nathalie Emmanuel, Lucas Black, John Brotherton, Djimon Hounsou, and Kurt Russell. Fast & Furious 7 opens in theaters on April 10, 2015.
