50 Cent, Jason Statham And Mickey Rourke Join ’13’

FROM MTV.COM: Now here’s a movie that oozes sheer testosterone. According to Variety, 50 Cent, Mickey Rourke and Jason Statham have signed on to star opposite Sam Riley in “13,” a remake of the French film “13 Tzameti.” Before you groan at the word “remake,” and wonder why we can’t leave European films alone, take a deep breath. This one not only has the consent of the original director, Gela Babluani, but is being written and directed by him.

The plot centers around a naive young man, who decides to steal a package, and follow its accompanying instructions hoping for a big payoff. But when he arrives at his destination, he finds a secret and ugly world, where men are gambling behind closed doors on the lives of other men. And he’s been trailed there by an edgy, angry cop. I think we all know this isn’t going to end well.
