Who Takes Over Paul Walker’s Unfinished Movies?

Paul Walker's tragic death scarred people not only emotionally, but also on professional level by setting back some of his upcoming movies. Universal Studios barely got their cash cow franchise, Fast & Furious, in the clear with a logical explanation for Walker's absence in the seventh film in the series. I remind you that director James Wan and Universal decided to retire his character, Brian O'Conner, but it's a whole other story as to how well it will be edited in the final cut.

As for Walker's upcoming movies - the ones he didn't even get to start - Deadline is reporting the names of two actors who stepped up as his replacements. One film is The Best of Me and the other - Agent 47.

Read on to find out who got Walker's vacancies:
Relativity and director Michael Hoffman have offered James Marsden the male lead role in The Best Of Me, an adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks bestseller that Paul Walker planned to star in. Marsden’s deal needs to be negotiated, but the offer was just made for him to star alongside Michelle Monaghan. Relativity had been quietly looking to recast since the tragedy that took Walker’s life late last year. This had boiled down to a short of Marsden and Magic Mike’s Joe Manganiello. While Universal put Fast & Furious 7 on extended hiatus to creatively find a way to finish the movie after Walker died in a crash Thanksgiving weekend halfway through the shoot, Walker had several good projects he was sparked to star in. Homeland‘s Rupert Friend [ak.a. Peter Quinn] is reportedly circling one of the others, Agent 47.
