Don’t get too excited for The Raid 3… it’s a while away yet

January 21st, 2015 by Marc Comments


Ever since Welsh film-maker Gareth Evans unleashed his movie The Raid on the world in 2011, it has a loyal and passionate fan-base who just love the violence, complex fight scenes, great characters and a plot that pulls you in.

Then last year the sequel hit and, although different in many ways, going down the route of The Godfather and introducing a complex story with many characters, mixed in with some brutal but exhilarating set pieces, it still grabbed the fans and held them tight while also gaining new ones.

Now Evans, who previously hinted that The Raid story was to be a trilogy and the third would follow the Bourne movies with the third taking place almost in the middle of the second, has told fans that the third movie is still a few years away via Twitter, saying: “The Raid 3 isn’t going to be happening anytime soon. Ideas in my head. Nothing written. No set date. 2018/19 possibly.”

That said, he still seems positive that it will still happen.. and that, at least, is something.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
