    The Raid 2

    We're discussing The Raid here.

    Sony Nabs U.S. Rights For ‘The Raid’ Sequel
    By BRIAN BROOKS | Thursday February 2, 2012 @ 5:44pm

    Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group has pre-bought U.S., Latin American and Spanish rights to the upcoming sequel to Indonesian action feature The Raid, which won the Midnight Madness Award at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. Tentatively titled Berandal for the Indonesian market, production will start at the end of 2012 in Jakarta. Raid star Iko Uwais will return and Gareth Huw Evans is set to direct and produce through his PT Merantau Films. LA-based XYZ Films is also on board as producer. International sales are being handled by Celluloid Nightmares, the foreign sales partnership between XYZ Films and Celluloid Dreams. Alliance/Momentum has pre-bought for the United Kingdom and Canada; Koch Media has acquired the film for German speaking territories; Korea Screen has pre-bought Korea; and HGC has pre-bought China. Deals for other major territories are currently in negotiations. The new installment will have a “significantly larger budget” than the original, producers say, although storyline details are being kept quiet. The Raid, which will screen at the upcoming SXSW Film Festival, follows an elite SWAT team sent to raid an impenetrable safe house in the Indonesian capital’s slums. Sony Pictures Classics is releasing The Raid theatrically on March 23rd and Screen Gems is planning an English-language remake which XYZ Films is also producing. XYZ is an LA-based production and sales company founded by Nate Bolotin, Nick Spicer, and Aram Tertzakian.

    The Raid: Retaliation

    I'm not sure if Raid 2 is in fact Berandal or not. If confirmed that it's not, we'll split this into a separate thread. In earlier interviews on the Raid thread, it implied that it was. Obviously, it's smarter for them to follow up on the franchise as Berandal is a nonsense word for most of us. If it is, we can always retitle this thread too.

    Uwais preparing for role in 'Raid 2'

    Published: 26/11/2012 at 01:49 PM
    Online news: Asia

    Martial arts superstar Iko Uwais has confirmed he will take a lead role in a sequel to The Raid: Redemption.

    The action thriller, a showcase for the traditional Indonesian martial art of pencak silat, follows an elite SWAT team's doomed mission to capture a Jakarta crime boss and has been a surprise hit worldwide since its release in 2011.

    "We've been preparing the choreography so far but we have not yet determined when we're going to shoot the movie," Uwais told Antara News.

    Director Gareth Evans confirmed earlier this year that the sequel has the working title of The Raid: Retaliation, with filming expected to begin in January 2013.

    "We'll announce the actors and when we shoot the movie on December 20," producer Ario Sagantoro told Antara News.

    I guess it is the same

    The Raid 2 Berandal Gains New Cast Members
    Julie Estelle, Oka Antara and Marsha Timothy join Iko Uwais in Gareth Evans' sequel.
    Posted 21st December 2012, 1:12pm in Film

    Some casting news for the sequel to this year's action hit The Raid (or The Raid: Redemption as it's known in the US).

    Writer and director Gareth Evans and star Iko Uwais are following up their Indonesian martial arts epic with Berandal, which is weeks away from production.

    THERAIDMOVIE on Twitter have revealed Indonesian model and actress Julie Estelle (Macabre) will take on the role of Hammer Girl, with the director revealing in a tweet that she's "not a heroine, she's a villain, but one that uses dual claw hammers while fighting in a style that resembles tiger style silat".

    Indonesian rapper and actor Oka Antara will play Eka, while Evans' Merantau star Alex Abbad and The Forbidden Door's Marsha Timothy have also signed on. Local stars Arifin Putra, Mathias Muchus and Tio Pakusadewo round out the cast.

    Evans also revealed that renowned silat practitioner Cecep Arif Rahman is also involved - star Uwais wowed in the first film with his skills at this particular martial art.

    While The Raid - Die Hard meets Assault on Precinct 13 meets Hard Boiled - boasted some incredible fight sequences, Berandal promises much more. When we spoke to Evans earlier this year, he revealed one idea: "The action sequences this time are much bigger in scale, and larger in scope. Our big set piece for the sequel is going to be Iko versus four guys, inside a moving car on the motorway. We're going to have him kick people out of windows, and smash the car into other vehicles."
    Hammer Girl. Nice.

    Two hours of downtime between films for Iko's character. Nice!
    'Raid: Redemption' Director Teases Sequel Details
    Posted 21 hours ago by Kevin P. Sullivan in News

    Gareth Evans has been discussing a sequel to "The Raid: Redemption" for quite some time now. Currently known only by its Indonesian name, "Berandal" will continue the story of the unstoppable badass machine Rama (Iko Uwais) and, as far as we knew before, was supposed to start production sometime this year.

    Now via his Twitter feed, Evans has cleared up a few lingering mysteries about filming "Berandal" and when the story will pick up.

    Evans revealed that the sequel would pick up a mere two hours after Rama escapes the criminal-infested high-rise, and from the way Evans described the bigger threat this time around, things sound like they're going to go from bad to worse quickly.

    Gareth Evans @ghuwevans
    Ok Raid 2 tidbit, we start shooting on January 19th and the first scene takes place 2hrs after the first film ends.
    1 Jan 13

    Evans spoke with MTV News all the way back before the US premiere of "The Raid" last year (you can watch the video above) and ran down some general points of "Berandal" without getting too specific. "The sequel is going to be a big departure in a way, in that we won't just copy the same formula as the first film," Evans said.

    "It's not going to be set within one building this time. Everything that was terrifying about the boss in that building in the first movie is small fry compared to the criminal organization we meet in the second film. We take it out into the streets, go much wider and much bigger in terms of the scope."

    I can't wait. At this moment, the work of Gareth Evans and Iko Uwais is the only thing in cinematic MA action that I'm really looking forward to with anticipation. The stuff out of Thailand seems to have ground to a halt or become stale. The stuff out of China/Hong Kong is on life support, and most of what's good completely depends on Donnie Yen.

    Who would have thought that Indonesia would be 'the place' for the best MA movie action at a given time?

    More in the wake of Berlin

    Interesting to see how this coattails on The Raid.

    The new division gives the LA-based outfit the ability to assist filmmakers from start to finish in securing worldwide distribution.

    BERLIN -- Los Angeles-based production and sales outfit XYZ Films is launching an international sales division that will unveil the first titles on its slate at the Cannes Marche du Film in May.

    Hot Trailer: ‘The Raid 2′
    By JEN YAMATO | Tuesday January 21, 2014 @ 11:37am PST

    Sony Pictures Classics has released a new action-packed trailer for Gareth Evans‘ martial arts sequel The Raid 2 ahead of its Sundance bow tonight. This is a hot ticket in Park City where the first Raid film screened after making a splashy debut at Toronto in 2011. Iko Uwais reprises his role as Rama, the Jakarta cop who battled his way through a tenement filled with criminals in the first pic only to go undercover in the sequel to uncover the corrupt baddies at the top of the food chain. Arifin Putra, Tio Pakusadewo, Oka Antara, and Julie Estelle join the fray in The Raid 2 which also sees the return of Raid actor/stunt choreographer Yayan Ruhian. SPC releases The Raid 2 on March 28 but they’re not the only studio banking on the Raid team. Yesterday at Sundance RADiUS-TWC pre-bought North American rights to Evans’ next project, The Night Takes Us, to be directed by Timo Tjahjanto (Killers) and produced by Evans with original Raid cast members starring. Watch the new Raid 2 trailer:

    The Raid 2

    I thought this was the best movie I've seen in a long time. I really enjoyed the krambit scene at the end. Way unrealistic but fantastically brutal.
