Joe Carnahan has taken to his Twitter and Instagram today and states “You can’t remake The Raid, guys. It’s a fantastic film. So, ask yourselves why would we be doing it, unless we had something really special.”
Some fans are up in arms about it but Caranahn said “It’s not a remake. It’s a reimagining of the same scenario. Everybody take a deep breath.”
I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what they come up with.
