Magnet Media has released the first trailer for the upcoming remake of the 2006 cult French thriller, 13 Tzameti. The film, now just going by the title 13, stars Sam Riley (Control) as a man who “unwittingly becomes involved in a degenerate, clandestine world of mental chaos behind closed doors.” The film also stars Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Michael Shannon, Ray Winstone, and 50 Cent. Géla Babluani, who directed and wrote the original film, will be remaking his own film for English audiences. Even though 13 premiered at this year’s SXSW Film Festival, the film still doesn’t have a release date. You can hit the jump to check out the trailer, poster, and to read a plot synopsis for the film.
For those of you just tuning in, here’s a plot synopsis for 13.
A naive young man assumes a dead man’s identity and finds himself embroiled in an underground world of power, violence, and chance where men gamble behind closed doors on the lives of other men.
