The puzzle of how Universal Pictures will piece together Paul Walker's "Fast 7" missing scenes has apparently been solved.

“They have hired four actors with bodies very similar to Paul’s physique and they will be used for movement and as a base,” a source close to the production reportedly told the New York Daily News. “Paul’s face and voice will be used on top using CGI.”

Various options for how to bring the movie to completion have floated around since Walker's death in late November. The following month, sources told The Hollywood Reporter that the movie would patch together some additional scenes to "retire" Walker's character, Brian O'Conner. Now, according to the Daily News' sources, Universal is confident the franchise's fans will be satisfied with the studio's CGI approach.

HuffPost Entertainment reached out to two Universal reps to confirm the news but did not receive immediate responses. "Fast 7" is set to resume production this month. It arrives in theaters on April 10, 2015, almost one year after it was originally slated to open.
