Here’s a new trailer for the action thriller Vehicle 19 starring Paul Walker, Naima McLean, Gys de Villiers, Leyla Haidarian, and Tshepo Maseko.

He soon realizes that he is the target of an entire police force after discovering the tied-up female “passenger” in the trunk. The pic is directed by Retribution‘s Mukunda Michael Dewil. Ryan Haidarian and Peter Safran produced and Walker and Eddie Mbalo are exec producers. A release date has not yet been set.
EXCLUSIVE: Furthering its commitment to co-finance action films from Luc Besson‘s EuropaCorp, Relativity Media has signed on to co-finance and be domestic distributor for Brick Mansions, the American-ized remake of the Paris-set Banlieue 13. The film will star Paul Walker, and it will be directed by Camille Delamarre, a protege of Besson. Besson, who co-wrote the original, scripted the remake with his Taken collaborator Robert Mark Kamen. Walker will star with David Belle, who starred in the original and the sequel District 13: Ultimatum. He is also the guy credited with creating Parkour, a sport that involves agility and leaping and climbing around obstacles. There will be plenty of that in these films. Read More »
