The entertainment world will likely never be completely healed from the tragic death of Paul Walker, who perished in a fiery crash eerily mirroring the scenarios from the Fast & Furious movies that made him a household name.
Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA was among those who had a heartfelt reaction. The acclaimed producer and accomplished actor in his own right even went out of his way to record a tribute record titled “Destiny Bends” to mourn Walker.
As fate would have it, the two were actually former co-workers thanks to Relativity Media and EuropaCorp’s upcoming action flick, Brick Mansions.
Set in a dystopian Detroit (as if the city needed a fictionalized dipiction to convey the bad times; just saying), Walker stars as the incorruptible undercover cop and RZA plays the drug lord who most likely will toy with his enemies until his luck is pushed to the brink.
The high-octane scenes will immediately make up for the generic outline of the script as director Camille Delamarre takes his knowledge as an editor on films such as Taken 2 and Transporter 3 and applies to them to the Brick Mansions reportoire.
Check out the official trailer below and prepare for the film to hit theaters on April 26.
