VOTD: Universal's Tribute To Paul Walker

While everyone at Universal is trying to figure out what direction the future of the "Fast and Furious" franchise will take, the studio has taken some time out to create a two-minute video tribute to Paul Walker, the late young actor who helped make the franchise the success it was.

One of the film's that Walker received most acclaim for was the thriller "Running Scared". That film's director, Wayne Kramer, recently spoke about what the future might have been for Walker: "I always told Paul that his most exciting years were going to be his 40s and 50s, and even beyond, as a masculine American tough guy in the vein of Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood and Lee Marvin. We talked about how Paul was going to be my Lee Marvin and we were hungry to make those kind of films that could show Paul in that light."
