Director Gareth Evans (The Raid, V/H/S/2) revealed via Twitter that he’s officially wrapped The Raid 2, which will bear the subtitle Berandal in some foreign markets.

After almost 7 months, to everyone who contributed in the making of this film… it’s a fucking wrap. #TheRaid2Berandal

Final shot of the day, as expected, was a kick from @iko_uwais – sadly it was to the stomach and not to the face. Good kick though,” he added.

After a follower requested for him not to “hold back on the killing this time,” Evans replied: “I learnt my lesson last time, far too much restraint.

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. From PT Merantau Films and XYZ Films, the pic is filming in Jakarta, Indonesia and is scheduled to shoot for over 100 DAYS. Iko Uwais returns in the lead. Tio Pakusadewo, Putra Arifin Scheunamann, Julie Estelle, Alex Abbad, Roy Marten, Matsuda Ryuhei, Endo Kenichi, Kitamura Kazukiall star.

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.

    Lol,that first film was ruthless with action. One of a kind by far. Almost too much, if possible. This shit will probably be crazy too.

    I want this in my lap now! Hopefully I’ll get to experience this in a cinema, which I couldn’t do with the first one unfortunately. My only fear is that it’s going to be too much like the first one, although I have no doubt that it will kick some ass!

    I agree, the first was great but suffered a bit from too much excess. I can’t really imagine that more gore will improve the film.
