Cool Videos: The Raid director Gareth Evans releases samurai short film

Now he's uploaded a short film to YouTube which features a different kind of fight; one without blood. As Evans states in his notes, the following short film is a test action sequence designed by Yayan Ruhian, Cecep Arif Rahman and himself. It was designed...

Several days ago it was reported that the American remake of THE RAID: REDEMPTION was stuck in limbo as both its director and production company had vacated the project. Taylor Kitsch was in talks to star alongside Frank Grillo in the remake which was to be directed by Patrick Hughes (THE EXPENDABLES 3), but Kitsch passed in order to board the True Detective train. Now another...

The Raid remake may be stuck in limbo with no director

There was a a large, collective eye-roll when it was announced a US remake of THE RAID: REDEMPTION would eventually be coming our way. No surprise given the popularity of the original (along with the lack of English), but there's been little said on the remake front. The reason for that just may be because the film is now without a director and its star. The names Taylor Kitsch and...

Ronda Rousey and The Raid's Iko Uwais to star in buddy cop movie Mile 22

When you hear the term "buddy cop" movie, you likely instantly think of LETHAL WEAPON or maybe RUSH HOUR. The common thread is it is usually a straight, by the books cop and a funny partner. Or, at the very least, it is one partner who is a cop and another who has a special set of skills like martial arts or being undead. There are very few examples of both cops being adept martial...

THE RAID 2 was released two years after the first movie, however we're going to have to wait a little longer than that for the next film. Fans have apparently been asking director Gareth Evans when to expect THE RAID 3 on Twitter, and while he does say he has ideas for the follow-up (Evans has previously said the sequel will start two hours before THE RAID 2 ends), he also...

Taylor Kitsch has been offered the leading role in The Raid remake

Taylor Kitsch was being groomed as a franchise man when X-MEN: ORIGINS and JOHN CARTER hit screens, but it was not meant to be. At least, not at that time. The commercial success was less than stellar with those flicks and now the all-but-confirmed news of Channing Tatum taking over the role of Gambit brings Kitsch back to square one. The man has recently proved his acting chops...

Scott Adkins would love to play a part in Patrick Hughes' The Raid remake

Yeah, I'm not happy about THE RAID remake either, but all we can do is hope it will be just as vicious as the original. And hey, at least Gareth Evans is executive producing the remake, and maybe director Patrick Hughes will find some actors who actually know martial arts. Scott Adkins definitely knows a thing or two about throwing down. Total Film recently asked the...

Review: The Raid 2

PLOT: Following the events of the first film, unstoppable cop Rama now must go undercover and get close to the arrogant son of a gangster while a war between criminal syndicates dangerously looms. REVIEW: THE RAID 2 is just about what you want from a sequel to THE RAID, at least on the bone-crunching front. Its fights are more convoluted and thrilling, its body count is higher,...
