Fans of Paul Walker can feel happy that they haven't seen the last of him yet. The actor, who was 40 when he was killed in a car crash in November, will be back on movie screens Friday in his final finished film, the crime drama "Brick Mansions." (His brothers are being used to complete Walker's role in "Fast & Furious 7," which is slated to open next April.)

But Walker isn't the only star who'll be making posthumous movie appearances this year and next. James Gandolfini, who was 51 when he died in September, portrays a shady bartender in his final film, "The Drop," a crime drama set to come out in the fall.

Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman, who was 46 when he died Feb.2, will be seen this summer in "A Most Wanted Man," based on John Le Carré's novel. He also appears in the two "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay" movies ("Part 1" opens in November).

And then there's Mickey Rooney, who was still working a month before he died at age 93 on April 6. The Mick has two films awaiting release -- "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" in October, and his swan song, "Night at the Museum 3," in December.
