We recently confirmed the original DISTRICT 13 (aka BANLIEUE 13) star David Belle was to join Paul Walker in a big-budget US remake of Pierre Morel’s 2004 freerunning French actioner. Luc Besson’s frequent collaborator/protege Camille Dalamarre will make his feature film directorial bow coming from a script by Besson, Bibi Naceri and Robert Mark Kamen with the retitled action-thriller BRICK MANSIONS.
Now we have word that former musician-turned-actor/filmmaker RZA, last seen in THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS, will portray the ruthless drug lord making lives a misery. Also, stunning French actress Catalina Denis is expected to take the role of Belle’s sister, kidnapped by the kingpin.
Are you excited at the cult parkour project getting an US overhaul? As ever, let us know your thoughts! Sadly, there is still no role for Cyril Raffaelli.
