On Thursday, Collider took to the web to share a new set of photos from upcoming releases and current productions, including one photo featured over at Indiewire, the first from the set of director Camille Delamare‘s American parkour action thriller remake, Brick Mansions, based on Pierre Morrel’s 2004 French-language hit, Banlieue B13, which starred Parkour trendsetter, actor David Belle and actor/fight choreographer Cyril Raffaelli. The photo features lead actor Paul Walker, inheriting Raffaelli’s previous role as a cop reluctantly partnered with a street smart freerunner to recover a weapon of mass destruction from a major drug pusher within the ghetto known as “Brick Mansions”.
Belle will reprise his role for Delamare‘s American remake in his debut lead role with Walker, opposite actor and Tom Yum Goong 2 co-star RZA returning once more to the fray as action cinema villain, sitting in for actor Bibi Naceri who also co-wrote the 2004 film.
