LOS ANGELES, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- Multiple media sites are reporting that Paul Walker, who died in a fiery car crash last November, left the entirety of his $25 million fortune to his 15-year-old daughter, Meadow.

The 40-year-old actor's last will and testament was signed in 2001, the same year that the first Fast and the Furious film made more than $144 million at the box office.

Walker named his father, Paul Walker III, executor of his estate, and his mother, Cheryl, as Meadow's guardian.

As TMZ points out, this could make things awkward for both the Walker family and Meadow's mother, Rebecca Soteros. Paul Sr. reportedly wants Cheryl to be named Meadow's guardian and manage the $25 million, though Meadow lives with her mother in Hawaii.

Meanwhile, work continues on Fast & Furious 7, the next installment of the popular car-racing franchise. Vin Diesel confirmed the film's new release date -- April 10, 2015 -- back in December, as the filmmakers decided to write Walker's character out of the franchise.

His co-star Kurt Russell said last month that Walker's death led to "catastrophic" changes on the next film.

"It's the worst thing that could happen to a movie," Russell said. "But it's not as bad as what happened to Paul. So everything is in perspective. He was a terrific guy and life is full of curveballs."
