Assault on Precinct 13 is director Jean-Francois Richet's update to the John Carpenter action classic. On New Year's Eve, Precinct 13 will close forever. A busload of Detroit's most lethal criminals is jailed there for the night under the watch of one cop, Jake Roenick (Ethan Hawke). A police cover-up is about to be exposed in court. So when the corrupt officers find out that mobster and top witness Marion Bishop (Lawrence Fishburne) is being held at Precinct 13, they descend on the undefended building. Officer Roenick has to put aside his differences with the cop-killing Bishop and use him as ringleader of the prisoners to grab guns and fight for their lives! And even if they fend off the corrupt cops, Roenick's got to deal with armed criminals who aren't going to want to return to their cells!
