Brick Mansions, an English language, 3D remake of action movie guru Luc Besson’s French film District 13, Brick Mansions looks like a kick-ass action film. I’d expect nothing less from the man that gave us The Professional.
Synopsis? Here ’tis, from comingsoon.net:
In the criminal underworld of Detroit, the streets are overrun with violence and drugs and the hand of corruption reaches into the lives of everyone; well almost everyone. For Lino (David Belle) every day is a fight to live an honest life. But when a drug lord kidnaps his girlfriend, Lino is forced to team up with Damien Collier (Paul Walker), an undercover cop who’s been tracking this king pin’s involvement in something even more sinister – a plot to devastate the entire city. Together they uncover a trail of corruption that leads all the way to the top. “Brick Mansions” features thrilling parkour stunts paired with gripping intrigue in this explosive must-see action film.
Check out the “one-sheet” poster and still for the film, scheduled to open April 25th, 2014. Insert touching, heartfelt bit about Paul Walker here, because I’m still kinda not able to wrap my head around his death.
