In some rather great news, director Gareth Evans (The Raid, S-VHS) has commenced shooting The Raid 2 (which will bear the subtitle Berandal in some foreign markets)! Any of you guys who saw the first one know full well that it warrants inclusion on this site because of it’s carnage and gore factor. Also? It’s an awesome movie. PT Merantau Films and XYZ Films announced that the film has started shooting in Jakarta, Indonesia and is scheduled to shoot for over 100 DAYS!
That’s a super long shooting schedule, which means we can expect that they won’t skimp on the choreography, blocking or stunts this time around either. Iko Uwais returns in the lead.
“Picking up right where the first film ends, ‘The Raid 2′ follows Rama (Uwais) as he goes undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force.”
Head inside for a photo gallery from the shoot!
