District B-13 was a shocking surprise when it was released in 2004. Combining Parkour and over the top martial arts, the story was so deliciously sweet and awesome it dare to give you diabetes! The public demanded more, and writer and uber french director Luc Besson has written us up another one! The original was directed by Taken director Pierre Morel, this one will be directed by french filmmaker Patrick Alessandrin, and produced and written by Besson!
The movie will be released by Magnet, a genra arm of Magnoila Pictures. Below is their press release for you’re reading enjoyment!
New York/Cannes – May 16, 2009 – The Wagner/Cuban Companies’ Magnet Releasing, the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, announced today that it has acquired U.S. rights to D13 – ULTIMATUM, the highly anticipated sequel to 2004’s action cult classic D-13, also released by Magnet. Written and produced by Luc Besson (who co-produced and co-wrote the first film), D-13 ULTIMATUM is directed by Patrick Alessandrin, and features David Belle and Cyril Raffaelli reprising their jaw-dropping performances as Leito and Damien from the first film.
ULTIMATUM picks up where D-13 left off, with the death of a powerful gang lord leaving a power vacuum in the chaotic and crime ravaged District 13. As five rival gangs compete to seize power, Damien (Raffaelli) and Leito (Belle) attempt to restore order before the Paris secret police takes drastic measures and wipes the district off the map. Like the original film, D13 – ULTIMATUM is a stunning showcase for unrivaled action and “parkour,” the gravity defying martial art pioneered by star David Belle.
“It just doesn’t get any better than this for action fans. Stars David Belle and Cyril Raffaelli continue to astonish in this adrenaline-packed sequel.” said Tom Quinn, SVP of Magnet. “We’re thrilled to be distributing this one-of-a-kind franchise from Luc Besson and Europacorp.
The deal was negotiated by Magnet’s Senior Vice President Tom Quinn and Head of Business Affairs Chris Matson, with Pascal Degove of Europacorp.
Magnet is planning a theatrical release fall of 2009.
