The English-language remake of French action movie District B13, Mansions, set in a dystopian future Detroit, stars Walker as an undercover cop who is tasked with going into a tenement named Brick Mansions to disarm a neutron bomb that is ticking toward detonation.
The film from Relativity and EuropaCorp has been set for an April 25 release. A teaser trailer debuted on Entertainment Tonight on Tuesday.
Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA and Catalina Denis also star in the thriller as does parkour expert David Belle, who starred in the original French film.
Walker died Nov. 30 when the Porsche Carrera GT he was riding in hit a pole and burst into flames. He wrapped Mansions in July. At the time of his death, shooting on the seventh installment of Fast & Furious was only half completed and he had two other projects that were supposed to shoot this year on his slate.
After Walker died, RZA wrote a song called “Destiny Bends” in dedication to his Mansions co-star, as the two bonded quickly on set. “I only knew him personally for less than a year, but we knew each other through our work and art,” he said last December. “We saw in each other a kindred spirit of men coming from unlikely circumstances, and rising to be the light and beacon of our family and loved ones, men who learned the joy and pains of love in life, and success, while coming to realize that nothing is more important than family, friendship and the brotherhood of humanity.”
Camille Delamarre, the editor behind movies like Taken 2 and Transporter 3, made his directorial debut on Brick Mansions. Luc Besson, Ryan Kavanaugh, Tucker Tooley and Christophe Lambert produced the movie.
