The Raid to get Hollywood ‘reimagining’

February 16th, 2017 by bash Comments

Joe Carnahan is set to remake/reimagine classic action film The Raid.

Before you get into a flap over such a stupid idea, the man who helmed The Grey said original director Gareth Evans had given him “his full blessing”, and that his version would be closer in feel to The Grey and NARC. Frank Grillo, meanwhile, is attached to star.

XYZ Films also released a teaser video online showing Carnahan and Grillo watching the Indonesian film and discussing a potential adaptation, noting it would have to be its own thing and not a straight-up remake.

Shortly thereafter, Carnahan took to Twitter to defend himself from the inevitable onslaught from fans.

“It’s not a remake,” he said. “It’s a reimagining of the same scenario. We won’t disappoint you, rabid-fanboy-from-Hell…”

More as we get it.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
