The Raid Is Being Remade With Frank Grillo
XYZ Films just dropped a video on Twitter in which actor Frank Grillo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and director Joe Carnahan (Smokin’ Aces) announce they are doing The Raid remake...
Based on 2011’s Indonesian action sensation directed by Gareth Evans, the original was released in America as The Raid: Redemption.
In The Raid a rookie member of an elite special-forces team, Rama (Iko Uwais) is instructed to hang back during a covert mission involving the extraction of a brutal crime lord from a rundown fifteen-story apartment block. But when a spotter blows their cover, boss Tama (Ray Sahetaphy) offers lifelong sanctuary to every every killer, gangster, and thief in the building in exchange fortheir heads. Now Rama must stand in for the team's fallen leader (Joe Taslim) and use every iota of his fighting strength - winding through every floor and every room to complete the mission and escape with his life.
