"District B13" Sequel Yes, American Remake No

by | March 13, 2007 | Comments

The Luc Besson produced "District B13" made such waves in Hollywood, introducing Parkour as a new martial arts style, that studios immediately wanted to make it their own. Besson, however, said no to a remake.

"We’re not going to do it," he said. "I don’t know, I don’t feel it. I’d rather do "District 13 2" with the same guys in France. But at the certain moment, there’s a big studio who asked us to remake the film and I said no."

The original starred Parkour founder David Belle and Cyril Raffaelli, taking on criminals in a futuristic city using Belle’s fluid art of bouncing off walls. The sequel would reunite Belle and Raffaelli, however Besson hopes for a tonal shift.

"We’re going to do a sequel in France. It’s going to be just a little bit more funny I think, the second one."
