Paul Walker's brothers Caleb and Cody are helping complete the final scenes for "Fast & Furious 7" after Paul's untimely death in November of last year.

In a Facebook post on the production's timeline, a representative wrote, "We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our FAST family. Caleb and Cody are helping us complete some remaining action for their brother and fill in small gaps left in production. Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too."

The production is less than a year away from release, and most of the dramatic scenes featuring Walker's character, Brian O'Conner, had already been filmed.

The crew said the new footage was "among the strongest work of his career" and that because the movie series features strong family bonds, the character of Brian O’Conner will "live on and let us celebrate Paul in his most defining role" though his brothers.

Walker was on a break from filming the seventh installment of the successful series when he and a friend were killed in a car accident in Southern California.

Walker was a passenger in a red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT that crashed into a utility pole and burst into flames. Investigators said they found no mechanical problems with the vehicle, and a coroner's report later said the car was likely traveling over 100 mph.

Walker and his friend were leaving a charity event held in support of his Reach Out Worldwide organization when they crashed. The driver, Roger Rodas, 38, was an active philanthropist and an experienced racer who competed in the 10 Pirelli World Challenge GTS races in 2013.
