Paul Walker's brothers, Caleb and Cody Walker, will be stepping in to help complete "Fast & Furious 7"'s action scenes, it was announced on the film's Facebook page Tuesday.

"We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul's brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our FAST family. Caleb and Cody are helping us complete some remaining action for their brother and fill in small gaps left in production," the statement said. "Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too."

It was noted that Walker had already shot his dramatic scenes and most of the action scenes as well on the upcoming film, and that it was "among the strongest work of his career."

"We are just under a year away from the release of FAST & FURIOUS 7, and this film is the most important we've ever done together. It will allow the character of Brian O'Conner to live on and let us celebrate Paul in his most defining role," the statement said.

Walker and his friend Roger Rodas died on Nov. 30 when the Porsche Rodas was driving lost control and hit a light post and a tree.

Production on the seventh installment of the hit franchise was put on hold for several months after the accident, and resumed this month.
