The Raid to Receive the Remake Treatment

The Raid to Receive the Remake TreatmentWhy? Just why? Again I question a remake, do will really need it? Of course not, but it is what it is and it appears as if Gareth Huw Evans’ The Raid, is the latest film to receive the Hollywood remake treatment.

According to The Wrap, Patrick Hughes (Expendables 3) will be directing the remake for Screen Gems and XYZ films this Fall.

Brad Inglesby (Out of the Furnace) penned the script and Gareth Huw Evans will return, but only as a producer.

Casting is yet to begin, however the Hemsworth brothers have been mentioned as possible targets for the planned remake, but I guess time shall tell.

The original “Raid” followed an Indonesian S.W.A.T. team tasked with storming a building where a violent gangster and his thugs reign over innocent residents. One young cop has a mission of his own – to rescue his drug-dealing brother from the chaos inside.

The remake is said to follow the original story, but I wonder how that will transcend once Hollywood gets its teeth into things.
