The Raid remake will be very different

August 19th, 2014 by Marc Comments

While The Raid is one movie that DOES NOT NEED REMADE, it is rolling ahead anyway…

Well, it looks like, if nothing else, the remake will be a bit different. Speaking with Grantland, director Patrick Hughes called his version an “ensemble piece”.

He compared it to “Black Hawk Down” and “Zero Dark Thirty”. He went on to say he’s casting the main 12 characters now and shooting will be early 2015, “After that, I’m pretty sure I won’t do a movie with ensembles, camouflage, and guns for a while.”

So it looks like the remake will be more of a re-imagining…

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….
