Having recently just watched The Raid:Redemption, and then immediately writing a review seen here; I can’t express to you just how excited I am to know that director Gareth Evans is planning on these movies becoming a trilogy. So, today when I found an image from the sequel entitled BERANDAL, which is translated ‘thug’, I pretty much flipped out.
Below is a picture of ‘Hammer Girl.’ There have been no details to who she is, or what side she will be on in the upcoming movie; but she has a hammer and I can only imagine what kind of brutality she plans on inflicting with it. The image comes from Evan’s twitter account:
For you who haven’t seen The Raid: Redemption yet, PLEASE get to it! You can purchase it through Amazon right NOW! If you’d like a brief synopsis, here ya go:
Deep in the heart of Jakarta’s slums lies an impenetrable safe house for the world’s most dangerous killers and gangsters. Until now, the rundown apartment block has been considered untouchable. Cloaked under the cover of pre-dawn darkness and silence, an elite swat team is tasked with raiding the safe house in order to take down the notorious drug lord that runs it. But when a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and news of their assault reaches the drug lord, they find themselves stranded on the 6th floor with no way out. The unit must fight their way through the city’s worst to survive their mission.
Gareth Evans is still attached as director, and The Raid star, Iwo Ukais, is coming back as well. We don’t know a lot, but we do know that BERANDAL takes place in a prison, following the events of The Raid. We here at DFAT will keep you posted on more BERANDAL news as it comes in!
Thanks to Collider for the heads up!
