Expendables 3 director to helm Raid remake

As we near the release date for the much-anticipated sequel The Raid 2, news was released today about casting and directorial choices for the English language remake of The Raid.

The Expendables 3 director Patrick Hughes has signed up to helm the remake for Screen Gems, while Gareth Evans, the director of the original Indonesian film, will produce the feature. Out of the Furnace screenwriter Brad Ingelsby will write the script.

There is no confirmed news as to who will star in the film, which will begin production this Autumn, but rumours about Liam and Chris Hemsworth linked as the main leads are already circulating online.

The Raid 2 is expected to hit UK cinemas in April.
