Paul Walker's body will reportedly be cremated.

The late Fast & Furious star who tragically lost his life in a blaze when the car he was travelling in crashed into a pole on November 30, will be laid to rest this weekend when his ashes are interred at Hollywood's Forest Lawn Memorial Park, according to E! News.

Walker's remains were released to his family on Tuesday and they have been busy preparing his funeral, which is expected to take place this week, with just family in attendance.

However, there will be another private memorial service for friends and family - which will likely include his Fast & Furious co-stars - at an undisclosed location.

Paul and his pal, Roger Rodas, were caught in the fiery car crash in Santa Clarita, California, last month, and their deaths have since been ruled an accident by a coroner.

An unofficial memorial rally was staged last Sunday in the area where the pair died. The actor's friends and family gathered at the crash site just days earlier, on December 2, to pay their respects also.

Meanwhile, Paul's jiu-jitsu teacher, Ricardo Miller, who guided him in the combat sport for nine years while working on the Fast & Furious films, has commemorated his late friend by bestowing him with an honorary black belt.

He wrote on his official website: "[Paul] was determined to become a black belt. He said, 'I will get my black belt, even if I need to get it in my coffin.' Now, in the wake of his death, I would like to reward Paul Walker the black belt that he wanted so much during his life," Miller said.
