Deadline is reporting that Paul Walker is in talks to star in Brick Mansions, a remake of District B13 (“Banlieue 13”). The movie has a script by Luc Besson, who co-wrote the original, and Robert Mark Kamen.
Walker would star with David Belle, would play the lead role in District B13 and the sequel District 13: Ultimatum.
The site says that “Walker will play 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 cowering in fear of the drug dealers.”
A director for the remake has not been announced yet, though Walker is expected to make the movie before Fast Six.
