Paul Walker's career is definitely on an upswing. He is part of the "Fast and Furious" series that has been reborn to become one of the biggest franchises. It was also recently announced that he'll star in the upcoming "Hitman" reboot, based on the popular video game.
And now comes word that Relativity Media has signed on to co-finance and distribute Luc Besson's action films, including the upcoming American remake of "District B13," which is called "Brick Mansions."
Walker is set to star in the remake, alongside David Belle, who starred in the original film and its sequel, "District 13: Ultimatum." Camille Delamarre (editor of "Taken 2" and "Columbiana") will direct from a script by Besson and Robert Mark Kamen (Taken).
The film will be set in America. 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 Lino (Belle), who knows Brick Mansions better than anyone and is the only person not intimidated by the drug dealers.

Yes, I'm sure people around the world have been absolutely begging to see Paul Walker do parkour in a movie.

Lol Hwood obviously doesn't know what made DB-13 popular. It had absolutely nothing to do with the plot. Its famous for the crazy stuntwork and martial arts. That's the only reason why they let two stunt men star in the film. Walker could never do what these guy did so the film is a disaster from the start. How stupid can you get Hwood....wait please don't answer that.

While on the subject of foreign films, did you see the Korean flick i saw the devil? i just saw it and wow! That is same crazy dark sh*t! I really liked it but i still think the script could of done with being polished slightly. But a great movie if you guys are looking for a great revenge film.
