Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham, Sam Riley and 50 Cent have committed to act in the remake of French Russian roulette thriller 13 Tzameti.

Named simply 13, the cast will be directed by Gela Babluani, who was also involved in the 2005 original. Filming is set to commence in and around New York City on November 17, with Paramount Vantage backing the project.

"13 is a high concept, tautly wound thriller with universal appeal," Vantage's Alex Walton told Screen Daily. "The combination of the phenomenal, international cast and Gela's undeniable talent take this compelling story of character and chance in dynamic directions that are sure to captivate audiences worldwide."

13 Tzameti was an instant hit, winning the 2006 Sundance Grand Jury Prize, European Discovery Of The Year at the European Film Awards, the Lion Of The Future award at the Venice Film Festival. It also earned two Cesar nominations.

Rick Schwartz' Overnight Productions, Barbarian Films and Morabito Picture Company will be producing. 13 is the third film to get the go-ahead as a result of Barbarian's strategic alliance with Oceana.
