'Fast & Furious 7' Tweets Unfortunate Picture Prior to Paul Walker's Death
It wasn't until late Saturday that the world discovered that Paul Walker had died at 40 years old following a tragic car accident, but, earlier in the day, Fast & Furious 7 tweeted a foreboding photo on its Twitter account. Just hours before TMZ reported the news of Walker's death — which has since been confirmed by the actor's official Twitter and Facebook page — the film tweeted a photo of Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto standing in a cemetery with the quote, "You were always my brother Han. He put you in this grave, so now I'll do the same to him."
Of course, the tweet was simply unfortunate timing on studio Universal's part, and directed at Sung Kang's Han Lue, not Walker's undercover police officer, Brian O'Conner. (And the "him" the quote is referring to? Jason Statham's Ian Shaw.) And, for the record, Universal — the studio behind Fast & Furious 7 — is treating Walker's death with the utmost respect, having released the following statement, "Paul was truly one of the most beloved and respected members of our studio family for 14 years, and this loss is devastating to us, to everyone involved with the Fast and Furious films, and to countless fans." Still, the photo was a spooky image for fans of the franchise, who are currently mourning Walker's death.
And it's not the only bizarre coincidence to find its way into Fast & Furious 7 fans' feeds — just three months prior to Walker's passing, the U.K.'s GQ asked Walker what he hoped to accomplish before he died. His answer, "I think people tell you you are a certain thing and so you miss out on a lot you would have otherwise experienced,” he told the magazine. "Inside I still feel certain things calling me.”
