Paul Walker Is Remembered at 'Furious 7' SXSW Screening

A screening of Furious 7 took place late Sunday (March 15)/early Monday (March 16) at the 2015 SXSW Festival and there was a special tribute to the late Paul Walker at the event.

“On a serious side: We obviously lost a dear friend, brother, comrade when we were making this movie,” Neal Moritz, producer of the film, told the crowd. “He was really the best guy I ever met in my world – in my life. When we decided we were going to continue this movie, we were determined to honor his legacy and our love for him forever. I just want to ask one big favor of everybody. You guys are going to get to see the movie tonight without knowing what happens to Paul‘s storyline. Whatever you want to say after the movie is cool, but please let future audiences see it the way you’re going to see it tonight.”

“This movie is the highlight of my career,” Neal added. “I’m so proud of what we’ve done. And I know Paul Walker would be smiling down on all of us.”

Star of the film Tyrese Gibson was also in attendance, “The reason that we kept this thing going became on behalf of our brother Paul Walker.”

The film is dedicated to his memory, and there’s a montage tribute to Paul at the end, THR reports.
