The new version of the raid is still happening, but not exactly how you would expect


If you love your action movies but haven't seen the Gareth Evans martial arts action show yet The raid: Redemption, then stop reading this now, go and look at it, and then come back after catching your breath. Plans for a new American version of this explosive masterpiece have been in the cards for some time, with The Grey Joe Carnahan currently attached to direct and produce The raid Redo. But Carnahan has now said that things in his version will develop somewhat differently than fans of the original expect.

"The version I wrote, they never intend to enter [to the building]. They think they are going to & # 39; move this guy. So their whole operation is & # 39; we are going to & # 39; hit this guy In transit. & # 39; It's not until they realize, & # 39; Oh, they're digging, they're not moving, now we have to go look for it & # 39; it's a very, very different script … It's very , very, very about the brothers. "

Changes are expected, since the film is now not considered, strictly speaking, as a new version of The raid: Redemption, making it a tribute, maybe? In any case, Joe Carnahan's film is clearly going to get a lot of inspiration from Evans's original martial arts master class, only this time the cops are trying to avoid the building that eventually becomes his grave.

In the original film, Iko Uwais police officer, Rama, and his team of special tactics are paving an apartment building that they know is a stronghold of a major crime boss. Almost the entire film takes place inside the building since the police are ambushed and have to fight to survive. And boy fight. However, it seems that Joe Carnahan's script has cops planning to avoid the infamous building altogether, which is a kind of diversion.

The original film also presents the relationship between Rama and his brother, from whom we learn that during the course of the film he is one of the chief lieutenants of the crime chief, and it is for that very reason that Rama joined the raid mission. first. Joe Carnhan's script seems that the relationship between the brothers in war will occupy a central place, while in the original Evans we did not discover this relationship until later.

Now we also know that the title of the project will be Zeno, named for the main character in the story. Despite these differences, the film will still force the police to enter the building where the fight for survival will take place, although it will be a miracle if they manage to get as good as the brutality of the original ballet. With that in mind, it may be a good idea not to treat the remake as a direct remake and instead address it as your own.

There is still no official date to see Carnahan's version, nor do we know who will star besides Frank Grillo. We know they are looking for a renowned star, but for now, this remains a mystery about who they might be looking at. Until we get more details, just go and look at the original again. This comes to us from Collider.
