Arrogant approach excels ~ Paul Walker of Fast & Furious dies

Today read a caption which did not sound aright … it was ‘Arrogant Approach excels’ – I always thought that brashness would never serve and that fast and furious would not reach the goal post…….. Reading it fully, it was on horse racing and ‘Arrogant Approach’ is a racehorse which excelled in outer sand display with I.Chistry astride. The other news of the death of actor Paul Walker of “Fast & Furious” movie fame makes a sad reading.

Walker has died in a car crash north of Los Angeles. He was 40. A statement on Walker’s Facebook page said Walker was a passenger in a friend’s car, and that the crash happened while he was attending a charity event. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department said the crash happened in community of Valencia. The Santa Clarita Signal reports a red Porsche crashed into a light pole and tree and burst into flames.

The Fast and the Furious is an American media franchise including a series of action films which center on illegal street racing and heists, and various other media portraying the characters and situations from the films. Produced by Universal Studios, the series was established with the 2001 film titled The Fast and the Furious; it has since been followed by five sequels, two short films that tie into the series, and a related video game series. Its huge earnings in Worldwide box office made it  Universal Studios' biggest franchise of all time. 

The 2001 film Fast & Furious was loosely based on a magazine article, titled "Racer X", about street clubs that race Japanese cars late at night. Expensive electric equipments get stolen. Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) is an undercover police officer who attempts to find out who exactly is stealing the equipment. The film was acclaimed for the impromptu street race, narrowly avoiding a passing train. Paul William Walker IV – the American actor, became famous in 1999 after his role in the hit film Varsity Blues, but later garnered fame as Brian O'Conner in The Fast and the Furious film series. His other films include Eight Below, Into the Blue, She's All That, and Takers.

It is reported that on November 30, 2013, at approximately 3:30 p.m. PST, Walker and Roger Rodas, age 38, left an event for Walker's charity Reach Out Worldwide for victims of Typhoon Haiyan. Shortly after leaving in Rodas' red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, the driver lost control and crashed into a light pole and tree in Valencia, Santa Clarita, California, and the vehicle burst into flames. Rodas was believed to be driving the car. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department declared the two dead at the scene.  Police initially investigated if drag racing played a role, but were unable to find evidence of a second car's involvement.  Rodas was the CEO of Always Evolving, a Valencia performance shop owned by Walker for high-end vehicles.

In the wake of actor Paul Walker's tragic death, the cast and crew of The Fast and the Furious 7 are facing a production delay - but the movie will not be cancelled entirely, despite an insider claiming that everyone involved with the film is "too distraught to work, anyway".
