As New ‘Raid 2′ Trailer Debuts, Gareth Evans Talks ‘Raid 3′
Who needs dialog when you have flying fists, bats, hammers and some of the craziest action sequences in recent memory? That seems to be the general idea behind the latest trailer for Gareth Evans’ The Raid 2 starring Iko Uwais.
Evans notes that, although he wants to take a break to catch up on sleep, he does have ideas for The Raid 3. While talking to Variety about the filmmaking process, he explained the basic idea for the sequel.
“They’re going to have to wait a while,” Evans said. “I don’t want to do it for three years, maybe. I do have a concept in mind. If this one is two hours after The Raid finished, Raid 3 starts three hours before The Raid 2 finishes. So you go back in time a little and then branch off for a different story.”
The Raid 2 debuts on March 28.
