RZA Joins Paul Walker in Action Movie 'Brick Mansions' (Exclusive)
The EuropaCorp and Relativity production is a remake of Luc Besson's French action movie "District B13."
RZA, the Wu-Tang Clan front man-turned-actor/director, has come aboard to play the villain opposite Paul Walker in Brick Mansions, EuropaCorp and Relativity Media’s English-language remake of French action movie District B13.
Camille Delamarre is directing the movie, which is being produced by Luc Besson, Ryan Kavanaugh, Tucker Tooley and Christophe Lambert.
The script sees Walker play an undercover cop who is tasked with going into a tenement named Brick Mansions in order to disarm a neutron bomb that is ticking down.
RZA will play the formidable drug warlord in the community who is in possession of the bomb.
The movie is currently shooting in Montreal.
RZA, who last year made his directorial debut with The Man with the Iron Fists, is coming off a turn as the Blind Master in G.I. Joe: Retaliation. After he shoots Mansions, he will move to co-starring in Fox’s Gang Related, which the network just ordered to series for a mid-season bow.
He is repped by CAA and Peter Nichols of Lichter Grossman.
