Twitch Film reports that filming is just weeks away on Berandal, the sequel to The Raid: Redemption that’s to be directed once again by Gareth Evans. For those of you yet to see, The Raid is one of the best action films in the past decade. I expect double the madness!
Star Iko Uwais will be back, says the site, with Macabre‘s Julie Estelle taking the role of Hammer Girl with other parts going to Merantau baddie Alex Abbad, The Forbidden Door star Marsha Timothy, and local stars Mathias Muchus and Tio Pakusadewo. And here’s one for those who are more concerned with who will be punching who than they are with who will be delivering the lines: Internationally renowned silat practitioner Cecep Arif Rahman has also signed on for a major part.
Evans is also one of the many directors of S-VHS, which premieres next month at the Sundance Film Festival.
