Assault on Precinct 13: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ethan Hawke and Laurence Fishburne are set to star in Assault on Precinct 13, Focus Features' remake of the 1976 John Carpenter film.
French filmmaker Jean-Francois Richet will be making his American directing debut on the project.
The new version, written by James DeMonaco, is set in the present day in a police precinct building that is about to be shut down. During a snowy New Year's Eve, a mobster (Fishburne) is temporarily incarcerated at Precinct 13, the soon-to-close police station. As the sun sets and a long night begins, a motley crew of policemen and prisoners reluctantly captained by a cop (Hawke) must band together to fight off a rogue gang that wants to free the mobster.
