While so many Hollywood relationships are more cordial than personal, that was never the case with Walker, Kang said in an interview Wednesday. “The more projects you do, the more actors you meet, the more people you meet, it’s harder and harder to give your heart and your complete attention or absolute sincerity to that person,” said Kang, 41, of Los Angeles. “But with Paul, every memory I have … [Read more...] about ‘Fast & Furious’ co-star Sung Kang remembers Paul Walker

The next "Fast & Furious" film may be close to honing in on a director. Recent reports suggested that franchise star Vin Diesel might sit in the director's chair for the eighth installment, but a new Facebook post suggests otherwise. Diesel changed his cover photo late Monday night to a picture of himself with director F. Gary Gray, the director of the hit film, "Straight Outta Compton." Reports say Universal tapped Gray and started to negotiate a deal. "Furious 7," released earlier this year, was directed by James Wan ("Insidious," "The Conjuring"). The film had a big box office debut -- one that even surprised of the movie's stars in the wake of franchise star Paul Walker's death.

The first six films made $2.4 billion, making it one of the most successful franchises in Hollywood, reports CBS News correspondent Ben Tracy. Yet, filmmakers had to figure out how to make number 7 without one of their biggest stars. In 2013, with the film only half shot, Paul Walker died in a horrific car crash. It was unrelated to the movie. "Certainly, this is the rare occasion where a major $250 million film loses its star halfway through," Entertainment Weekly's Darren Franich said. Some questioned whether the movie would go on after Walker's death. "Of course Universal was going to finish this movie," Franich said. "They … [Read more...] about How studio finished making “Furious 7”
