A trailer for Brick Mansions, Paul Walker’s last completed film, has been released just months after his death in a Los Angeles car crash at the age of 40.
In the District B13 remake, the late Fast & Furious star will play an undercover police officer, tasked with overtaking a criminal ring that is holding the city of Detroit hostage with a neutron bomb.
Walker’s character is called into a “situation that demand the best of the best.” He must gain access to Brick Mansions, an enclosed tenement that is “so dangerous” a wall was built around it.
Walker’s ex-con partner Lino will be played by free-running founder David Belle, who appeared in the original 2004 French thriller. Lino’s parkour expertise is highlighted at the beginning of the trailer.
Brick Mansions will not be a film for the faint of heart. As the trailer suggests, the film will be overflowing with testosterone, over-the-top explosions, and enough badass moves to make any action fan happy.
The film is a directorial debut for Camille Delamarre after the work he did editing Taken 2 and Transporter 3.
RZA (real name Robert Diggs), an American music producer from the hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan will star as the crime lord, along with Colombian actress Catalina Denis, is also among the cast.
During the filming of Brick Mansions, Paul Walker and RZA became good friends. The rapper, deeply moved by Walker’s death, wrote a song called “Destiny Bends” in tribute to what he calls his “kindred spirit” co-star.

Brick Mansions is set to release in theatres on April 25, 2014.
