The Raid Remake – Frank Grillo Speaks


We know now that Frank Grillo is set to star in The Raid remake.  And that Patrick Hughes, director of Red (2010) and The Expendables 3 (2014) will direct.  At one point, the Hemsworth brothers were rumoured to be involved.  During promotion for The Purge: Anarchy (2014), Grillo took some time to address this remake.

Speaking on integrity and the stigma that remakes have, Grillo said: “You know, we want to keep the integrity of the two movies, the fight integrity specifically.  We will not make the movie, I will not make the movie — and I know that Patrick hughes is the same, unless we are absolutely sure that it will represent what the fans wanna see.  If it comes down to a point where we don’t think we can execute it, we won’t“.  Well I guess those are encouraging words.  Come to think of it, the original plan was to shoot that movie in early September.  But that has been pushed back to Q1 2015.
