The studio had previously been eyeing a February release, but that was before Paul Walker tragically passed away in November, after sustaining injuries in a car crash. The actor plays Damien Collier, a Detroit undercover cop who teams up with a street thug named Lino (original District B13 star David Belle). They try to rescue Lino's girlfriend from a drug lord, who has a nefarious plot in place to destroy the city. RZA, Robert Maillet and Catalina Denis co-star in the film, which was directed by Camille Delamarre.
To make room for Brick Mansions, Relativity has also moved Earth to Echo from April 25 to July 2, where it goes up against Warner Bros.' Tammy and Sony's Deliver Us from Evil. The studio also announced that it is making a donation to Paul Walker's charity Reach Out Worldwide, which includes the cost of the film's premiere. The actor's manager Matt Luber is serving as a consultant for the film and its upcoming release.
Brick Mansions was released April 25th, 2014 and stars Paul Walker, Robert Maillet, David Belle, RZA, Carlo Rota, Kalinka Petrie, Catalina Denis, Ayisha Issa. The film is directed by Camille Delamarre.
