Unfortunately, the Production for the Indonesian action/thriller The Night Comes For Us has Been put on hold.
In the meantime writer/director Timo Tjahjanto has teamed up with a graphic novel company Glitch Network to bring his tale of action, murder, and destruction to life in graphic novel form
Joe Taslim from The Raid and Fast And The Furious 6 was set to star in this action/thriller. The Night Comes For Us was also set to star Yayan Ruhian, also from The Raid movies and Julie Estelle, Hammergirl from The Raid 2.
It was to be directed by Timo Tjahjanto who also gave us Macabre, a segment in V/H/S 2, and also a segment in The ABC’s Of Death and more recently Headshot. The action scenes were to be directed by Gareth Evans, writer/director of The Raid movies and fight scenes were choreographed by Iko Uwais.
There’s been no update about the graphic novel in quite some time but if anything surfaces then you guys will be the first to know. Hopefully, if we see the new Iko Uwais movie Headshot do well then it might be time to put this one back into production.
Headshot looks to be doing really well. It just opened in various festivals across the globe and reviews are solid, as expected. The film looks to be crazy violent which proves that there is most definitely a market for this genre of movie. The film is also directed by Tjahanto who is also known as one-half of The Mo Brothers
The Night Comes For Us was set to be produced by XYZFilms and Merantau Pictures
Here is the plot from wiki…
Ito, a gangland enforcer, returns to his local crime family in Jakarta after a stint with the notorious South East Asian Triad and finds himself trapped in a world of betrayal and chaos as the Triad initiates a bloody campaign of territorial expansion.
Thanks for reading.
