Producers of Paul Walker's upcoming film Hours have decided to go ahead with the planned release schedule following the actor's death on Saturday, November 30.

The 40-year-old star was killed in a car crash in California just two weeks before the film's release date.

Film executives met yesterday to talk about their plan of action and have decided to release Hours as they feel that is what Walker would have wanted.

CEO of Pantelion Films, Paul Presburger, told The Hollywood Reporter, "After lots of back and forth, this is our decision. It's Paul's tour de force. He's in every frame of the movie. Paul would have very much wanted us to move forward. He was incredibly proud of this project.

"We did a press junket two weeks ago, and I remember sitting with him and how excited he was for people to see this movie. He really looked to this movie to show people that he is an actor. He was looking for something to showcase his acting skills, which he so rarely had the chance to do. He hit it out of the park."

Universal are still discussing how they will proceed with the Fast & Furious 7 film which Walker was currently working on.
