The film will be an American revision of Pierre Morrel’s orginal French-language 2004 international parkour hit, Banlieue 13 (a.k.a. District B13) and Patrick Alessandrin’s 2009 follow-up, Banlieue 13: Ultimatum and will star Paul Walker and Parkour founder, David Belle who co-starred with actor, freerunner and fight choreographer Cyril Raffaelli in the previous films.
