More than one million people have viewed an emotional video tribute to Hollywood actor Paul Walker within hours of it being posted online by the Fast & Furious crew.

A montage of scenes from the hit franchise, featuring Paul Walker and his co-stars, has been set to the track I'm Coming Home by JCole featuring Skylar Grey.

Stars including Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Jordana Brewster, Dwayne Johnson and Ludacris have already expressed their shock and sadness at the death of their friend and colleague in a car crash.

The video includes one particularly poignant moment where Vin Diesel's character Dominic Toretto toasts those gathered - including Paul Walker's character Brian O'Connor - as "mi familia".

The most important thing in life will always be the people in this room, right here, right now ...

Paul Walker was killed alongside former racing driver Roger Rodas when the Porsche they were travelling in hit a lamppost and burst into flames in Los Angeles.

The 40-year-old actor leaves behind his 15-year-old daughter Meadow.

In posting the video tribute, the team behind the Fast & Furious films added a message from the Walker family.

"Paul Walker's family appreciates the outpouring of love and goodwill from his many fans and friends," it states.

"They have asked, in lieu of flowers or other gifts, that donations please be made to Paul's charity Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW)."

Universal Pictures has confirmed that production on Fast & Furious 7 has been shut down indefinitely - it had been due out on 11 July 2014.

"Right now, all of us at Universal are dedicated to providing support to Paul's immediate family and our extended Fast & Furious family of cast, crew and filmmakers," a statement said.

The studio added that it was assessing "all options available to move forward with the franchise".
