Cast for “Assault on Precinct 13” Named

On January 27th I posted that talks were underway to re-make John Carpenter‘s classic Assault on Precinct 13. According to The Hollywood Reporter and, Ethan Hawke and Laurence Fishburne have signed on to co-star in the retelling.

This is interesting casting. Ethan Hawke surprised me with his excellent performance in Training Day.

It’ll be interesting to see how Fishburne plays the cool, ruthless killer Napoleon Wilson [a character that I would have loved to see Sylvester Stallone take a shot at].
