Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham, and Curtis Jackson (50 Cent) are teaming up for the American adaption to the award-winning French crime thriller 13 TZAMETI. Slashfilm sums the story up as:

"Twenty-two-year-old Sebastien (Georges Babluani) leads an impoverished life with his immigrant family constantly struggling to support them. While repairing the roof of a neighbor’s house, he overhears a conversation about an expected package that promises to make the household rich. Sensing the opportunity of a lifetime, Sebastien intercepts the package containing a series of specific instructions. Following the clues, he assumes a false identity and manages to slip through the grasp of the enclosing police as he ventures deeper and deeper into the countryside. The closer he gets to his destination and the more people he meets along the way, the less he understands about what he is looking for. Ultimately, he comes face to face with a ring of clandestine gamblers placing bets on the outcome of a multi-player, high stakes tournament of Russian roulette. Gela Babluani’s directorial debut is a winner-take-all thriller, where an unfortunate young man is transformed into the thirteenth contestant in an incredibly inhuman game."

Long summary I know, but it does sound good doesn't it?
