Gareth Evans drops some interesting information about when The Raid 3 will be set

01.06.2014

THE RAID 2 looks more intense with each new glimpse of footage and fans of the first movie are surely excited to see the continued violence in Gareth Evans sequel. The promise of every aspect of the first movie being raised in THE RAID 2 only means the inevitable RAID 3 is going to be insane. That's right, if you didn't already know, Evans has always planned for THE RAID to be a trilogy of films.

Evans has been dropping nuggets of news about THE RAID 2 on his Twitter feed which revealed the following piece of news about THE RAID 3:

THE RAID 2 takes place two hours after the first, THE RAID 3 would start two hours before THE RAID 2 ends.

That is not a typo: THE RAID 3 will take place during the events of THE RAID 2. That means there is already consideration made during the creation of THE RAID 2 as to how it will feed into the third movie. Will characters from the second film overlap with the third? How exactly this overlap will drive the story is unknown but it will definitely beg multiple viewings to figure it all out.

This also means taken in one sitting, all three movies in the trilogy will be very tightly plotted in line with one another, something you don't often get these days. It seems that most "trilogies" in recent years are single films split into sequels like THE HOBBIT or they are forced into multiple films to increase the box office prospects like PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN. THE RAID was popular with movie buffs when it hit and THE RAID 2 is assuredly going to do the same. Here's hoping that THE RAID 3 will kick that final bit of ass and go down in film history.

THE RAID 2 hits theaters on March 28, 2014.

Nice

Damn, back in Jakarta whenever my stepdad asked if I wanted to go to Julie Gasnier's (Hammer Girl) parents' place when he was invited for dinner and drinks...I always declined. She was 5 years younger than me at the time, but awesome she is in this.

yeah, i think this squarely points to a second protagonist. you cant really have the two films occurring almost simultaneously without another protag to follow. kudos mr. evans. i cannot wait.

It's not exactly 'tightly plotted' or contained as you'd think. The sequel begins mere hours after the first's ending, yet jumps to weeks and months later throughout its plotline.

That means there is already consideration made during the creation of THE RAID 2 as to how it will feed into the third movie.

No it doesn't. It could mean that after developing The Raid 2 and starting working on ideas on the Raid 3 that they came up with a clever way to overlap the movies.

Nothing about the two movies overlapping inherently equates to the idea that Raid 2 was developed with the ideas for Raid 3 in mind. clever storytellers can easily retrofit the ideas together.

this would be the reason why logic is never a requirement listed when joblo asks for new writers.

Possible The Raid SPOILERS:


My guess is that Rama's gang-enforcer brother gets involved in The Raid 3, hence the time overlap.
