Was Paul Walker drag racing at the time of his death?
Details continue to emerge about the car wreck that killed “Fast and Furious” actor Paul Walker and his business partner, Roger Rodas, on Saturday — and they aren’t pretty.
TMZ.com reports that cops are looking into the possibility that Walker and Rodas were drag racing when their Porsche exploded after first hitting a tree and then a lamppost. The area where they died is a well-known racing strip. In fact, the site reports that fans are “doing dangerous burn-outs, donuts and other high speed stunts” at the death site in memoriam of Walker.
Meanwhile, production for “Fast and Furious 7″ “won’t be scrapped,” sources close to the production tell the Hollywood Reporter. The production has been underway in Atlanta, taking a break for the Thanksgiving holiday, and was scheduled to head to Abu Dhabi in January. Sources say production will be “delayed” as director James Wan and studio executives figure out how to re-work the project and “how to proceed in a manner that would be respectful to Walker’s death.” The latest film in the successful franchise is scheduled to be released July 11.
