Paul Walker's family decided "The Fast and the Furious" must go on, and the later actor's brothers are seeing to that personally.

The film franchise confirmed via Facebook on Tuesday that Caleb and Cody Walker have stepped in to finish their brother's action scenes in "The Fast and the Furious 7."

Paul Walker died in a car accident in November, while the film was still being shot.

In a post titled "A Note to the Fans," those involved with the franchise said they needed time to "grieve Paul, the brother we love and lost, and to figure out if we should move on with our film."

The post continued, "We came together and all felt the only choice was to continue. We believe our fans want that, and we believe Paul would want that too. Paul had already shot his dramatic scenes and most of his action for 'Fast & Furious 7,' and it's among the strongest work of his career.

"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. Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too."

The film is slated for a spring 2015 release.
