Paul Walker documentary to show a side of the actor that very few knew

On November 30, 2013, the world stood in shock as the news about the death of Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker broke. Tracing back the life of the actor, who died at the young age of 40, Paramount Network has decided to make a documentary on the actor's life. The documentary, I Am Paul, will release this summer.

The film will be produced by Derik Murray, while Adrian Buitenhuis will be directing it. This is not the first time that Derik has been part of such projects. Previously, the producer had been part of other films such as I Am Heath Ledger, I Am Bruce Lee, I Am Evel Knievel, and I Am JFK Jr., and he would also be looking at Paul's life through the same lens. 

The documentary is said to “explore Walker’s prolific film career and showcase a side of Paul few knew — from his passion for the world’s oceans and marine life to helping rebuild Haiti after the devastating earthquake.” The film will also see Jon Slusser and Jaimee Kosanke as executive producers.

Meanwhile, “interviews with some of Paul’s most cherished castmates and friends who knew him best” will also be featured in the film. As of now, no specific list of cast members has been out but in the coming days, they are expected to announce who would be part of the documentary.

Paul death took place after he and his friend Roger Rodas left an event for Paul's charity Reach Out Worldwide for victims of Typhoon Haiyan. With Roger driving his Porsche the car crashed into a concrete lamp post and two trees and caught fire. 

It was noted that Roger died of multiple trauma while Paul died from the combined effects of trauma and burns. Both their bodies were burned and were beyond recognition after the crash. Shortly after Paul's death, his daughter, Meadow Walker, launched The Paul Walker Foundation in order to keep his passion for the ocean alive.
