Caleb and Cody Walker are joining the Fast & Furious family.

According to a message posted on the Fast & Furious 7 Facebook page, Paul Walker's two brothers will fill in for the late actor in order to complete some of his unfinished scenes in the upcoming flick, which has finally resumed filming after Paul's death last year.

"The Fast & Furious saga is about family," reads the post. "The characters are connected by the bond of family, and it is how all of us who have worked together for more than thirteen years feel about each other. It certainly defines how we feel about our fans."

"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," it goes on. "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 message goes on to say that the franchise's seventh installment, and Paul's last, 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."

"We wanted to take a moment to speak to our fans directly and thank you for the love and support you always show us as we resume our work," the message concludes.

Fast & Furious 7 resumed filming just last month. The film is set to hit theaters Apr. 15, 2015.
