District B13 remake Brick Mansions starring Paul Walker gets a release date

02.06.2014

Paul Walker left several completed films after his untimely passing including the English language remake of the French action movie DISTRICT B13. The original film was a cult favorite when it was released in 2006. The new film was in limbo since Walker's death but now Relativity and EuropaCorp have decided on a release date this Summer.

The remake follows a similar plot to the original film but updated for American audiences.

BRICK MANSIONS is set in a dystopian Detroit with Walker playing an undercover cop who is tasked with going into a tenement named Brick Mansions in order to disarm a neutron bomb that is ticking down.

Starring Paul Walker and RZA, BRICK MANSIONS was originally slated for a February release but will now hit screen on April 25th. Also starring Catalina Denis and DISTRICT B13 star David Belle, the parkour-filled movie is directed by TAKEN 2 and THE TRANSPORTER 3 editor Camille Delamarre. It should fit your annual need for a Besson-style action movie.

There is no trailer for the film just yet, but enjoy the trailer for DISTRICT B13 below to get an idea of what is in store.

The original was really exciting and it did seem like the kind of film that would immediately get picked up for an American remake. A big part of why it succeeded was because the leads, Cyril Raffaelli and David Belle, were experienced parkour sportsmen and martial artists, so I wonder how it would play out with non-experts in the role. Also, RZA is a terrible actor.
