The Raid Remake Postponed Indefinitely

raidstarsYou might remember that there are plans, or were plans, for an American remake of The Raid.  Word was that Expendables 3 and Red Hill director Patrick Hughes had signed on to helm  the movie, with Frank Grillo and Taylor Kitsch rumoured to appear.

This week Frank Grillo gives an update to that to SlashFilm.

“The Raid was a go movie and there was one character, the critical character, that they were just not happy with. There’s not a lot of 30-something guys out there that… there’s a lot of training, a lot of martial arts training.

They weren’t going to remake The Raid, which is a beloved film, if they couldn’t find a guy who could find the physical stuff and they hadn’t been able to do that. So I think we’re going to come back around after I’m done with the second 10 [episodes of Kingdom]. We’re going to come back around to that.”

Grillo then explained why Kitcsh did not eventually sign on…

“they came kind of close… then he took True Detective.”

    Good! Patrick Hughes sucks.

    1. He ruined the Expendables (he’s a grown man, shouldn’t be bossed around when he’s directing),

    2. lied about the movie,

    3. wanted to remake a movie that isn’t even 10 years old.

    4. wanted to remake one of the best action movies of the last five years,

    5. wanted to shoe-in his best buddy Frank Grillo as the main guy, (with rumors of Thor), instead of Scott Adkins.
