District B13 Sequel Underway

A sequel to the 2004 French parkour action film “District B13” is set to begin production in July reports Slashfilm.

No plot details for “District B14” are out but an open casting call has been issued for parkour experts. The story has been penned by Luc Besson and the film will be directed by Patrick Alessandrin.

The first film is best known for it’s intense chase sequences which use parkour (very similar to, but not the same as ‘free running’). The French-founded discipline was memorably used in the opening chase sequence of 2006’s James Bond franchise re-starter “Casino Royale” and has been seen in such films as “Breaking and Entering,” “Live Free or Die Hard,” “The Incredible Hulk” and the “Rush Hour” series.
