Assault On Precinct 13: According to Variety, Focus Features will team with Stephane Sperry's Liaisons Films and Why Not Productions on an updated U.S. version of John Carpenter's cult classic Assault on Precinct 13.

Inspired by Howard Hawks' Rio Bravo, the 1976 film took place in an isolated, nearly abandoned Los Angeles police station, in which officers, staff and prisoners are forced to negotiate a partnership when a vengeful street gang lays siege to the building.

The new version transports the story to the present day, in a police precinct made obsolete by the industrialization of its surroundings.

Stay tuned...
