Paul Walker, Hours

© Copyright Pantelion Films 2013

Prior to his death, Paul Walker had a couple of other films in the works aside from Fast and Furious 7.

One of those movies, which he completed before his passing Saturday, was the Hours, which tells the story of a dad struggling to help his newborn daughter survive in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

In the trailer for the film, Walker plays Nolan, who suddenly becomes as a single dad after his wife (Genesis Rodriguez) dies giving birth to their daughter five weeks early.

In the midst of that tragedy, Hurricane Katrina hits while he's still in the hospital with their baby, who is on a ventilator that can't be transported. 

In spite of the heavy material, in an interview with Hitflix, the actor said the part was "actually the easiest" of his career.

"There's no game, no nonsense," Walker told the site. "You go and tell the truth every day. You live the experience. You're not trying to be anything, not selling a product, you're not trying to look cool."

"If it's not good, that means I screwed it up," he continued. "I had to be so present. It's hard to tell the truth. It was really refreshing. It was a breath of fresh air to do it."

The film, directed by Eric Heisserer, is due in theaters Dec. 13.
