Kurt Russell talks Paul Walker and Fast & Furious 7

Kurt Russell had one day of filming to go on “Fast & Furious 7” before Paul Walker’s tragic death.

Now, the 62 year-old actor tells The Associated Press, things have understandably changed.

“They’re having to rewrite, they’re having to do whatever they’re having to do to deal with the situation,” he said. “Listen, it’s catastrophic. It’s the worst thing that could happen to a movie, but it’s not as bad as what happened to Paul,” he said. “So everything is in perspective. He was a terrific guy. And life is full of curveballs.”

Russell, who plays a father figure to Vin Diesel’s character in the Justin Lin directed movie, says Walker’s death could affect his own character in “Fast & Furious 7”.

“Whether or not this guy dies off in the movie, we don’t know, and that may have changed now significantly, too.”

Sounds like the plan might have been to kill off Kurt’s character, but maybe – knowing they’re going to have a slot to fill in “Fast & Furious 8” – they’ve decided to keep Russell around?

Russell, at Sundance to promote a movie about his father’s minor-league baseball team, “The Battered Bastards of Baseball”, believes he’ll be back shooting more scenes for the film later this year.

Meanwhile, check out this terrific fan-made poster for the movie – which some have mistakenly attributed to Universal; though unofficial, it’s pretty darn brilliant.

“Fast & Furious 7” will be released April 2015.
