Geek News: Paul Walker Remembrance and Fast and Furious Movie News

Last week when Paul Walker passed away the whole entire nation was in shock.  Some were in denial, but most couldn't believe that he had passed and that he had such a brutal death.  Paul Walker should be remembered for not only his talent, but for the amazing person he was and how much he gave to the World and community around him.  Fans everywhere have also been wondering what will happen with the new Fast and Furious movie, The Fast and Furious 7 that had just started production when Walker died. There will also be some great contributions starting with the sale of The Fast and Furious 6

Walker was not just an actor he was a father, brother, husband, son, uncle, friend and he gave so much to so many.  Most people were aware of all the charities that Paul Walker donated to and how much he contributed to the World with his own charity, Reach Out Worldwide.  Reach Out Worldwide was a charity organization that helped people through natural disasters and it has saved and helped many people.  Most people that were not aware of his contributions soon became aware since that's where he was heading when he passed away.  Paul Walker gave to so many and even when it didn't involve his own charities he still gave so much to the community.  Going to the store if he saw someone that looked like they were suffering he gave them money.  There are so many stories surfacing about what a wonderful man Paul Walker was, and much he helped the community surrounding his home or anywhere that he traveled.  Its not a surprise to us that he contributed so much to the community around him. 

Fans everywhere have been wondering what is going to be done with the new Fast and Furious 7 movie.  Paul Walker and friends were right in the middle of filming when he passed away.  And fans everywhere were left wondering if the movie would even be able to be finished.  For us this was not our first thought, the only thing we could think of was the shock of his passing and the horrible pain we felt for his family, friends, and second family at The Fast and the Furious.  Universal announced that they would still be finishing the movie, but that production would temporarily be shut down.  Right now they are trying to get through the healing period and making sure that Walker's family is taken care of before moving forward.  Universal released the following statement:  “Right now, all of us at Universal are dedicated to providing support to Paul’s immediate family, and our extended ‘Fast & Furious’ family of cast, crew and filmmakers,” the statement read. “At this time we feel it is our responsibility to shut down production on ‘Fast & Furious 7- for a period of time so we can assess all options available to move forward with the franchise.” They also announced that all of the proceeds from the blu ray sales would be going to Paul Walker's charity, Reach Out Worldwide.  Universal studios made some very tough but ethical decisions surrounding Paul Walker's death, and we feel that it's exactly what he would have wanted. Paul Walker would be proud to know that his charity and family will be taken care of.  We also feel that he would not have wanted The Fast and Furious movie franchise to suffer from his death.  These were movies he spend half of his life building, and we are glad that it will still continue to grow.  We feel that Universal Studios was completely right with putting production on hold, but not cancelling it for good.  Paul Walker's death was a horrible thing to have happen, but we are glad to know that he can rest in peace knowing that everything he build will still be going strong.

Paul Walker was such an honorable person and gave back to so many people. Our hearts still continue to goout to his family, friends, and all the cast and crew at The Fast and the Furious.  Paul Walker's contributions will never be forgotten and we will always remember him not as the great actor, but as the wonderful man that gave back to so many people.  As far as his contributions to the entertainment industry we will never forget him in one of our favorite movies, Running Scared.  He made so many other great movies other than The Fast and the Furious, and we are also excited for his new movie, Hours.  We have included a preview of Hours so you can have a good idea of what this movie was about and why Paul Walker was so passionate about this movie.  If you want to contribute or help all you have to do is pick up the new Fast and Furious 6 movie.  All the contributions will go to Reach Out Worldwide.  If you want to contribute more than the price of a movie, we have also included the website where you can make donations.
