The 40-year-old actor was on a break from the upcoming movie when he tragically lost his life in a blaze when a car he was traveling in crashed into a pole in Santa Clarita, California on November 30, and his lookalike sibling, Cody Walker, who has worked as a stuntman, has been asked to step in to help filmmakers finish the movie as a tribute to Paul.
A source told the MailOnline website: "Producers had a string of meetings right after Paul's death.
"They soon realized they needed someone who looked like Paul to finish the movie and that's when they approached his nearly identical brother, Cody.
"They can shoot Cody from behind and at distance and if it's a shot they need Paul's face in close up they can CGI it later on.
Universal Pictures shut down production on the movie, which began in September, when they heard about Paul's death and a source previously insisted the company was deliberating whether the film could be salvaged by reworking the script to write out Paul's character, Brian O'Conner.
A spokesperson said: "We are not commenting on the status of things at this point."
