‘Fast and Furious 8’ Movie: Paul Walker Return Confirmed? Elijah Wood Joins Cast


There is nothing more heart wrenching for “Fast and Furious” fans than to watch the scene where Brian O’Conner parted ways with his bestfriend, Dominic Toretto. But rumors are getting bigger that Brian will return in the upcoming “Fast and Furious 8.”

Since the unfortunate death of Paul Walker did not give him the chance to film the rest of “Furious 7,” his brother Cody took his place to play Brian O’Conner, with the help of CGI.

The rumor about Brian’s comeback started when actress Jordana Brewster, who plays Mia Toretto- O’Conner, allegedly hinted that she might return to the next film.

“I don’t know [if I’d do another film], but it’s always dependent on the fans,” she told HuffPost Live Interview months ago, quotes News Celebrity’s YouTube Channel.

Aside from that, the production team may also be thinking that they could bring back Walker’s character in some flashback scenes, which will be played by Cody as well, notes Master Herald.

Unless the production team confirms this rumor, we can just treat this speculation with a grain of salt.

In other “Fast and Furious 8” news, Master Herald also noted that another actor is about to join the film.

“Lord of The Rings” star Elijah Wood is said to be playing the role of Dominic Toretto’s illegitimate son. Should this be true, the site believed that he is expected to have the same level of hype as well as his dad in terms of racing.

Aside from Elijah, other Hollywood stars that are rumored to be joining the film are “Orange is the New Black” lead Ruby Rose, “By The Sea” actress and director Angelina Jolie and high fashioned model Cara Delevigne.

Let us keep an eye for further updates regarding the highly anticipated “Fast and Furious 8,” which will hit theaters on 2017.
