Here’s one more step in the career upswing of Paul Walker. As we wait for the action shenanigans of Fast & Furious 6 (and the inevitable seventh film) he’s lined up a starring role in the new version of video game series Hitman. And now he’s got another action pic — a remake of Banlieue 13, better known in the US as District B-13.

The remake is to be called Brick Mansions, and will be set in America rather than Paris. In an interesting twist, David Belle, the 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.”

Deadline says that Luc Besson and EuropaCorp set Camille Delamarre to direct; Delamarre edited Taken 2 and Colombiana.

After the break, Seth Gordon talks about his WarGames remake and the potential dramatic re-do of King of Kong, and we’ve got the first image from the remake of Danish TV series The Bridge, with the new version made by the director of Miss Bala. Read More »
