Paul Walker talks about getting to play and doing "fun guy stuff" in the 2014 movie "Brick Mansions," one of the actor's final films.
The movie marks the first posthumous release for Walker, the last before "Fast & Furious 7" hits theaters in 2015. The movie, which began shooting before his sudden passing after a car accident in November 2013, is currently filling in gaps in production by enlisting the help of his brothers, Cody and Caleb.
Walker spoke about "Brick Mansions" in an interview filmed prior to his death, describing the film's plot as somewhat of a card trick.
"The story behind 'Brick Mansions' is we got this politician who is playing shady cards," Walker said in an interview provided by distributor, Relativity Media. "He's been scheming, basically, to have the equivalent of a ghetto just mopped up to serve his agenda, which is put in high-end luxury homes and he's gonna make all kinds of money."
"So Damien gets set up thinking that he's doing some honorable deed, you know, looking out for the best interest in the community, and then finds out that he's basically been played like a card," he continued. "He teams up with this dude, this ex-pat French guy by the name of Lino Dupree and we gotta set the record straight."
Walker also spoke about the similarities between he and his character, saying that like Damien, he enjoyed physical activities and having an all-around good time in his personal life.
"Damien and I are similar in that we like running around, we like jumping, we like kicking ass and having fun, so I think a big part of the reason why I wanted to do this one is I was like, 'Oh cool, I get to go play,' I get to face some physical challenges, have fun and jump off roof tops and race cars and you know, just do fun guy stuff," Walker said.
"We're running around jumping doing fun stuff, so if you want a good ride and go out just have a good time, that's what this one's about," he concluded.
