One could call this the biggest Action Synergy but it seems like an East meets West collaboration is on the way and its going to be huge…
Gareth Evans and Micheal Bay are all set to come together to remake the indonesian Super hit actioner The raid that was directed by Evans and received cult status..
The film is said to be directed by The Expendables 3 and Hitman’s body guard director Patrick Huges. The original followed an elite Indonesian S.W.A.T. team that becomes trapped in a tenement run by a ruthless mobster and his army of killers and thugs.
The film premiered at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival and earned instant praise for its insane action sequences and turned Evans into one of the festival’s biggest stars. Sony Pictures Classics would release the film, which gained a 30 million box office on a 800000 budget got a cult fan base that would lead to a sequel The Raid 2.
The English version is set in Philadelphia’s drug-infested “Badlands,” where an elite undercover DEA task force climbs a ladder of cartel informants to catch an elusive kingpin.
