Brick Mansions Starring Paul Walker Gets April Release Date
Relativity Media has set an April 25, 2014 release date for one of late actor Paul Walker's final movies, Brick Mansions. This English-language remake of the French action-thriller District B13 will go up against 20th Century Fox's The Other Woman, Focus Features' Walk of Shame and Lionsgate's The Quiet Ones.
The studio had previously been eyeing a February release, but that was before Paul Walker tragically passed away in November, after sustaining injuries in a car crash. The actor plays Damien Collier, a Detroit undercover cop who teams up with a street thug named Lino (original District B13 star David Belle). They try to rescue Lino's girlfriend from a drug lord, who has a nefarious plot in place to destroy the city. RZA, Robert Maillet and Catalina Denis co-star in the film, which was directed by Camille Delamarre.
To make room for Brick Mansions, Relativity has also moved Earth to Echo from April 25 to July 2, where it goes up against Warner Bros.' Tammy and Sony's Deliver Us from Evil. The studio also announced that it is making a donation to Paul Walker's charity Reach Out Worldwide, which includes the cost of the film's premiere. The actor's manager Matt Luber is serving as a consultant for the film and its upcoming release.
