Paul Walker To Star In District B13 Remake

Pause and breath. If the headline made you angry then we have something in common, but don't be upset because this news isn't all bad.

Paul Walker, famous for his appearance and his ability to look like he drives cars, is already set to be the new agent 47 in an upcoming Hitman reboot. Now he’s got another action flick in the works; a remake of Banlieue 13, better known in the US as District B-13.

For those of you who are lost at the moment; Banlieue 13 and its sequel are French action movies based on parkour (free-running).

The remake is to be called Brick Mansions, and will be set in America rather than Paris. In an interesting twist, David Belle, the forefather of parkour and star of the original film and its sequel, will also appear. Walker’s character will be “an undercover detective chasing a weapon of mass destruction that was stolen by a drug dealer in the ghetto known as Brick Mansions. He seeks help from the incredibly agile Lino (Belle), who knows Brick Mansions better than anyone and is the only person not cowed by the drug dealers.”

The interesting news here is Luc Besson and EuropaCorp set Camille Delamarre to direct; Delamarre edited Taken 2 and Colombiana. I would much prefer Luc to remake his own movies but if he is warching over the whole production I' a bit more at ease. David Belle's presense also calm my nerves and makes me want to watch this when it releases. I would also love it if LiveWire and Daniel Ilabaca were cast.

If you have not seen these films please watch and enjoy.
More on this as we get it.
