18 November 2014 11:00 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Superstar Akshay Kumar, known for his physical strength and action prowess recently shot a large action portion for his upcoming film, Baby, under probably one of the toughest conditions ever to be encountered for a film’s production – the extreme heat of the Abu Dhabi desert.

The Neeraj Pandey directed film had already shot in Kathmandu and Istanbul but what the unit encountered in Abu Dhabi was severe – burning sand dunes, hard heat winds and a temperature hovering in the fifties! While a large part of the unit was struggling to keep up with this tough terrain, one man seemed to behave like he was on a walk in the park – Akshay Kumar! Always known to enjoy tough schedules and outdoor action,Akshay was at his best even as others seemed ready to melt.

Backed by the energy and skill of the famous Cyril Raffaelli (action director) and the determination of Neeraj, »

Akshay Kumar is put through his paces by his Parkour Idol

17 October 2014 7:48 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Already renowned for elaborate stunts and his phenomenal prowess in martial arts, Akshay Kumar looks set to hone his parkour skills with the help of French stuntman, Cyril Raffaelli. An image of the two together has been posted by Akshay on the set of his next explosive film, Baby. The international superstar expressed his delight at working with such a big name in the parkour world.

Guess who?? On the sets of my next thriller #Baby. This is my only hint. He’s a God in my parkour world.”

Akshay Kumar is no stranger to the French practice of free running, having previously admitted to regularly taking part in the exercise. Raffaelli, who has worked on the sets of Die Hard 4.0, The Incredible Hulk and District 13, has been reportedly working with Akshay Kumar to develop his parkour skills even further.

Much of the filming for Baby has taken place in Nepal, »

‘Brick Mansions’ Review: The Bland New Spin on Parkour You’ve Been Waiting For

25 April 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Hollywood remakes of foreign films are here to stay because they perform a great service to illiterate and lazy Americans nationwide, but their track record is dubious at best. This is especially true for remakes of action films for two commonly recurring reasons. Hollywood can rarely compete with the action (usually due to pesky things like insurance), and they often over-think the script in an effort to make it “smarter.” Brick Mansions, the English language redo of the 2004 French hit District B13, thankfully makes no attempt to beef up the film’s intelligence — it’s more likely that they dumbed it down actually. But it will surprise no one that the action is subpar shenanigans created and destroyed entirely through rapid-fire editing. Damien (Paul Walker, replacing the far more limber and athletically talented Cyril Raffaelli) is a cop fighting the good fight in 2018 Detroit. The city previously walled off the less gentrified neighborhood of Brick Mansions in »

First Poster, Images & Release Date For Paul Walker-Led Actioner ‘Brick Mansions’

8 February 2014 11:36 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The shocking and sad death of likeable actor Paul Walker late last year was always going to put a spotlight on his films still to be released. While he gave a great sympathetic performance in indie drama Hours (released in the Us last December), his final completed film was always going to catch the eye a little more as a big-budget remake of Pierre Morel’s terrific 2004 French actioner District 13 (aka Banlieue 13).

The film has been retitled Brick Mansions, with the original free running superstar David Belle taking the same role as an ex-con forced to team with Walker’s undercover cop (previously played by Cyril Raffaelli) in an effort to take down a ruthless crime lord with access to a neutron bomb.

We’ve the first images and poster from the film directed by Luc Besson’s frequent collaborator/protege Camille Dalamarre and written by Besson, Bibi Naceri and Robert Mark Kamen. »

First Look at Paul Walker in Brick Mansions (aka District 13 Remake)

6 February 2014 1:34 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Get your first look at director Camille Delamarre’s “Brick Mansions,” a Hollywood remake of the French action series “District 13″ from writer/director/producer Luc Besson. The film is, of course, one of Paul Walker’s last movies before his untimely death late last year in a car crash. Like the 2004 French original, the remake follows an undercover cop in the near future who tries to take down a ruthless crime lord with access to a neutron bomb by infiltrating his gang. The added problem? The gang is located in a walled off housing project. Walker is playing the cop, but I have no idea who RZA is playing. The movie will co-star David Belle, who starred in the original and its 2008 sequel with Cyril Raffaelli. “Brick Mansions” opens this April 25th. Here’s a clip from the original French sequel featuring Belle »
