Late actor Paul Walker’s final completed film “Brick Mansions” has landed a release date in April.

The English-language remake of French action movie “District B13″ was scheduled to hit cinemas this month, but it was pulled from studio Relativity’s diary following Walker’s death in a car crash in November.

In the film, which also stars rapper-turned-actor RZA, the late Walker plays an undercover police officer trying to disarm a bomb.

As a mark of respect to the action star, Relativity bosses have opted not to have a premiere for Brick Mansions and they will donate the money they would have spent on a red carpet launch party to Walker’s Reach Out Worldwide charity.

Walker was working on the seventh installment of the “Fast and Furious” franchise at the time of his death; he had only half completed his scenes.
