Filmmakers behind the “Fast & Furious” franchise have paid tribute to Paul Walker by creating a video montage dedicated to the late star.

The 40-year-old actor died on Saturday in a car crash in Santa Clarita, California just days before he and his castmates were due to resume filming “Fast & Furious 7.” The video was posted online with a link to Walker’s charity Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW), encouraging fans to make donations to the organization in lieu of sending flowers.

Production on “Fast & Furious 7” has been put on hold by movie executives to allow the cast and crew to mourn Walker’s death.
