Vin Diesel pays tribute to the late Paul Walker on his Facebook page


Vin Diesel has paid an emotional tribute to the late Paul Walker – by posting new pictures of himself and his tragic co-star in the forthcoming Fast And Furious 7 movie.

The shots have caused a frenzy among his fans, who feared the movie franchise installment may never see the light of day.

But Vin revealed the film is definitely happening by revealing the new pictures of himself and Paul, who died in a car accident last November.

He coupled it with a touching tribute to Paul on his Facebook page, which will no doubt leave his many fans feeling emotional.

It reads: ‘Universal came to visit, to show the trailer for FF7. Speechless… yeah, it was that INCREDIBLE!

‘I must also say, that it was emotional and bittersweet.

‘We all went above and beyond to make Pablo proud, but man, I wish he could see what we have created and just how far we have come.’

In the shot handsome Paul looks dapper in a two piece suit and open-necked shirt, while Vin scrubs up well in his get-up too.

The on-screen duo seemed to be sharing an intense moment in the film in this photograph.

Another still shows Vin’s on-screen alter-ego Dominic wrapping his hands in a white bandage and it looks as though he means business.

We’ve already seen a handful of images from the set of Fast & Furious 7, but that was before the untimely death of the show’s heartthrob Paul, aged 40.

Hollywood was plunged into mourning after Paul died on November 30th
2013. He was a passenger in a car which crashed at more than 100mph and
burst into flames, also killing the driver Roger Rodas.

Since then, the cast and crew have mourned his death, and completed production during the difficult months following Paul’s death. The film is set to arrive next spring, and from the look of these new images – we’ll be racing to the cinemas to see it.
