Why in the world we need a remake of The Raid right now is baffling. The original film did well when released here a couple of years ago, and there was so much action no one even complained about the subtitles. Besides, if you really wanna see an American version, go watch Dredd.
In any event, The Wrap is reporting that The Expendables 3‘s Patrick Hughes is in negotiations to direct The Raid remake for Screen Gems and XYZ films. Brad Inglesby (Out of the Furnace) wrote the script.
Casting has yet to begin, but the Hemsworth brothers – Liam, Chris, and Luke – have been mentioned as possible targets for the hard-hitting action movie!
Deep in the heart of Jakarta’s slums lies an impenetrable safe house for the world’s most dangerous killers and gangsters. Until now, the rundown apartment block has been considered untouchable. Cloaked under the cover of pre-dawn darkness and silence, an elite swat team is tasked with raiding the safe house in order to take down the notorious drug lord that runs it. But when a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and news of their assault reaches the drug lord, they find themselves stranded on the 6th floor with no way out. The unit must fight their way through the city’s worst to survive their mission.
