THE RAID: REDEMPTION remake has been put on hold until 2015.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the news when I first heard it, but a remake is no doubt inevitable and it comes after such a short time after the release of the original Indonesian classic, WTF? It just keeps proving my point that Hollywood doesn’t have an ounce of originality left.
Some rumours have surfaced about the casting and the short-list apparently is Ethan Hawke, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo and Luke Evans.
Fuck that !!! What in gods name is Ethan Hawke gonna do in THE RAID remake? I can’t imagine Ethan Hawke administering the round house kicks to the same level as the talented Iko Uwais.
They could change the story which I’m pretty sure they will. Take out the martial arts and replace it with guns and muscle.
Not impressed though… Not impressed at all.
I doubt many people would be…..SIGH!
