Studio shutting down Fast &Furious 7 for now

Quote
"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. 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. We are committed to keeping Fast & Furious fans informed, and we will provide further information to them when we have it. Until then, we know they join us in mourning the passing of our dear friend Paul Walker".

I don't know if it's because I'm so aware of Walker because of the FF franchise, or it's because he was so young, or that he was that great of a guy, but I'm hearing a lot of news about him.

All of the above. I remember the first time I saw him, where I actually noticed him as an actor was on Highway To Heaven. I may have seen him in earlier stuff, but I don't recall. But it was that episode where I took notice that the kid could really act. Ever since then I have been following his career.

Not sure if you posted the wrong clip. This was a montage from F&F. Based on your header "thousands turn out....", I thought maybe you were posting something where fans showed up to celebrate his life.

You're right. There is a clip from the today show (http://www.today.com/entertainment/thousands-turn-out-tributes-paul-walker-2D11708520). I was intending to post that, ran across the tribute and posted that instead. My bad.

Paul Walker's daughter wins $10.1M crash settlement

The daughter of Paul Walker has won a $10.1 million settlement from the estate of Roger Rodas, who was behind the wheel of the Porsche in which both men died in November 2013.

Jeff Milam, the attorney for 17-year-old Meadow Walker, told TMZ.com that while Rodas was partially responsible for the crash, while not "directing the car through any particularly unsafe maneuvers when it went out of control."

The settlement between Walker and the Rodas estate was finalized in November 2014 but remained undisclosed until this week.

"Through his estate, Mr. Rodas, the driver of the car, took partial responsibility for the crash," Milas said in a statement to USA TODAY. "Meadow's lawsuit against Porsche AG a $13 billion corporation intends to hold the company responsibly for producing a vehicle that was defective and caused Paul Walker's death."

He said the money would be placed in a trust for Meadow Walker, but that it only covers "a fraction of what her father would have earned had his life not been tragically cut short."

He added that he and his client intend to continue their lawsuit against Porsche AG in Los Angeles Superior Court, despite the fact that a federal judge dismissed a similar case brought by Rodas' widow Kristine earlier this week. She had claimed the accident was the result of a suspension failure and the lack of key safety features on her husband's 2005 Carrera GT.
