"The Raid 3 was... at one point it was on my radar. I had a full idea. I know what the storyline would have been. But I think enough time has passed now that I think I'm not likely to go back and revisit it. We had a lot of fun making those films, and I think we came to a nice, sort of natural conclusion with [The Raid 2]. And I think sometimes you can have a little bit too much of a good thing." Gareth Evans
Based on an original screenplay by Gareth Evans, the first The Raid starred Iko Uwais as Rama - a member of an elite S.W.A.T. team assigned a mission to take down a tenement controlled by a violent and dangerous mobster. The sequel, in turn, saw that mission expand, as Rama goes undercover in an attempt to root out corruption within his department. Both films earned glowing reviews from professional critics and audience, most of the excitement generated because of the films' remarkable fight scenes, and even for a time Hollywood considered an English-language remake. That project never came together, however, and now it looks like The Raid 3 is going to share a similar fate.
