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.

‘India is a treasure trove of musical talent’, says Kevin Fox

 New Delhi 
Grammy-winning choir director Kevin Fox has said that India is a treasure trove of musical talent and the country has “many more Vanraj Bhatias and A R Rahmans” to offer. The music composer who was in India as part of Classical Movements’ India Choral Fellowship, hoped that the endeavour would help initiate an exchange process between Indian and American choirs.

“India has many more Vanraj Bhatias and A R Rahmans, and we hope to take Indian choirs abroad and bring more American groups to India. After some 5 to 10 years, we expect to see thousands of choirs and choral singers in India, singing in Indian languages and encouraging more Indian composers,” Fox said.

Organised by Classical Movements, a US-based company for world’s greatest orchestras and choirs, the tour saw ‘Yale Schola Cantorum’ and ‘Juilliard415’ coming together to perform in three Indian cities – New Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai.

Fox, along with his troupe, also conducted music workshops with adults, children, professional singers, as well as beginners in the three cities. The fellowship, a brain child of Neeta Helms, was aimed at an increased “exchange of information and exposure” between musicians from both the countries.

Helms is also the President of Classical Movements. “A native of India, Neeta grew up singing in choirs, and feels there is a need for choirs in India to be able to share ideas with more of their colleagues around the world. During the tour we trained a lot of Indian teachers. We also wanted to learn as much as possible about the choir programs in India, and explore ways in which we can provide conductors and teachers to enhance their activities and spread the joy that comes from group singing,” Fox said.

Helms seconded Fox saying that such collaborations would “energise” existing choir singers in India and also encourage new people to join choirs. “We wanted to expose new people to the idea of singing with others, and share ideas on making singers and choirs as a whole the best they can be,” she said.

Fox, on his maiden visit to India, said he found Indians very “welcoming and kind”, and also expressed his love for Indian food. “It is the tastiest and the most varied cuisine in the world,” he said.
