At last the sequel to the hit District 13 (Banlieue 13).
Principal photography, planned for twelve weeks in France, started on August 11th with Patrick Alessandrin, Luc Besson's longtime assistant (Subway, The Big Blue) and more recently originator of 15 Aout, at the helm.
In District 13 - Ultimatum, the camera pursues the duo formed by Cyril Raffaelli and David Belle, two of the biggest names in parkour, the sport invented by David Belle himself that consists of turning elements
of the urban landscape into obstacles that must be crossed in leaps, bounds or any other acrobatic manner. Kung Fu Wu Shu world champ Cyril Raffaelli also made his name for his brilliant stunt and fight coordination on Joan of Arc, Dobermann, Ronin and The Brotherhood of the Wolf. In his international acting debut, in 2007, Cyril lined up alongside Bruce Willis in Die Hard 4.
The new adventures of Leito and Damien take us back to the same Parisian ghetto a few years later with our two heroes once more battling the baddies and the clock to save the city from catastrophe.
