It was like a punch to the gut when I found out that Timo Tjahanto (Killers) would not be making his Indonesian revenge thriller The Night Comes For Us.
The film starred Joe Taslim, Yayan Ruhian, Julie Estelle, from The Raid movies, Tjahanto primarily directing and had Gareth Evans directing the action scenes with Iko Uwais (Rama, from The Raid franchise) choreographing the fight scenes… yup, I know, it’s heartbreaking.
So, why didn’t this recipe for awesomeness happen? – well to tell you the truth, I have no idea. All I have read is that pre-production on the flick stopped on September 2014.
But all is not lost, A month later Tjahanto announced that he would be joining forces with Glitch Network to adapt the screenplay into a graphic novel.
So, who knows, after the release and inevitable success of the graphic novel, we may get to see the film yet… but unfortunately not in the near future.
