Kurt Russell: ‘Fast and Furious 7’ Ending Has Changed

Kurt RussellKurt Russell says the whole ending of Fast and Furious 7 is being changed in the wake of Paul Walker's death.

The film franchise's star was killed in a horrific accident on November 30 when the car Paul was traveling in careered off the road and smashed, which has led to his final film - which was incomplete at the time - being significantly altered.

“They're having to rewrite, they're having to do whatever they're having to do to deal with the situation. Listen, it's catastrophic. It's the worst thing that could happen to a movie, but it's not as bad as what happened to Paul. So everything is in perspective. He was a terrific guy. And life is full of curveballs,” Kurt - who is joining the franchise playing a father figure to Vin Diesel's character - told ETonline.com.

The 62-year-old star added the fate of his own character may now change in the new ending. “Whether or not this guy dies off in the movie, we don't know, and that may have changed now significantly, too,” he added.

Death Proof Fails to Stand Alone in the UK

Death Proof posterQuentin Tarantino’s Death Proof opened in the UK last week, its producers, Bob and Harvey Weinstein, hopefully anticipating the result of their decision to split the film from its counterpart, Robert Rodriguez’s Planet Terror. But without the nostalgia of a bygone B-movie tradition and the novelty of a rare double-feature bridged together with wonderfully cheesy trailers in a faux-intermission, the film didn’t manage to captivate British audiences; if it did, they certainly weren’t compelled to go to the theater in great numbers. The film debuted in a pathetic sixth place at the box-office (£407,525 or $821,623) behind only one other opener: I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, which came in third.

As you may recall, Grindhouse walked away from the US box-office with a measly $24.9 million despite critical praise, something The Weinsteins chalked up to the uniqueness of the movie coupled with a long run-time and poor marketing. The decision to split the film into two separate entities for overseas distribution and DVD release was an attempt to recoup the losses incurred by that poor US performance. The marketing for the UK release of Death Proof hinged on Tarantino’s name and credibility, since he’d had successful openings in the past (Reservoir Dogs actually had better attendance there than in the US).
