RZA and Paul Walker in Brick Mansions (2014) Movie Image

Get your first look at director Camille Delamarre’s “Brick Mansions,” a Hollywood remake of the French action series “District 13″ from writer/director/producer Luc Besson. The film is, of course, one of Paul Walker’s last movies before his untimely death late last year in a car crash.

Like the 2004 French original, the remake follows an undercover cop in the near future who tries to take down a ruthless crime lord with access to a neutron bomb by infiltrating his gang. The added problem? The gang is located in a walled off housing project.

Walker is playing the cop, but I have no idea who RZA is playing. The movie will co-star David Belle, who starred in the original and its 2008 sequel with Cyril Raffaelli.

“Brick Mansions” opens this April 25th.

Here’s a clip from the original French sequel featuring Belle

    the original had a horrible story, it was there only to portray the parkour/freerunning, which was great, especially for its time. i wonder how hollywood will do the parkour/freerunning part. certainly paul walker can’t parkour/freerun for crap or can he?

      He was going to be the cop in it, the same guy from teh first film was playing the free-runner. Rza is the villain I beleive.
