Hollywood actors Ethan Hawke and Lawrence Fishburne are poised to sign up for a remake of seventies cult classic ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13.

Hawke will play a policeman and Fishburne a gangster in the new version of director John Carpenter's landmark 1976 movie, about an abandoned police precinct that finds itself under siege from a heavily-armed gang.

French director Jean-Francois Richet is making his Hollywood debut with the remake, and filming is set to being in April (04).
