Paul Walker's role as Brian O'Conner in "Fast & Furious 7" will be something of a family affair.

In a statement posted on the film's official Facebook page, it was announced that the late actor's brothers, Caleb and Cody, will help "fill in small gaps left in production" as stand-ins for Paul's character in the movie. The full statement can be read below.

"We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul's brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our FAST family," the statement reads. "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."

Following his untimely death in November 2013, production on "Fast & Furious 7" was shut down and its original July 2014 release date was pushed back until April 10, 2015. Paul was confirmed to appear in the final version of the film in December 2013.

Paul, Caleb and Cody Walker all bear a striking resemblance to each other, making it suitable for the two to serve as stand-ins for Paul's role as Brian O'Conner. Check out a PHOTO of the three siblings, which was shared on Paul's official Facebook page here.

Authorities confirmed in March 2014 that Paul's death was the result of "unsafe speed," after being involved in a fatal car crash on Nov. 30, 2013. Roger Rodas, Paul's friend and business partner who was driving the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT that crashed, was also killed in the collision.
