Reality Check: Hollywood Wants to Remake an Indonesian Film That Hasn’t Even Been Released Yet!!

Published

on

Many will say that Hollywood has gone too far when it comes to remakes, reboots, and any other word that starts with re-.  Well now, we get to the next level: remaking a foreign film that hasn’t even been released yet!

THE RAID is an Indonesian action film about a SWAT team that becomes trapped in a criminal safe house run by the same mobster they were trying to take down.  It already won the audience award at TIFF’s Midnight Madness, and Sony Pictures has picked up the North American distribution rights to the film at the Cannes Film Festival.

But, instead of just screening the film in the U.S., Screen Gems (a subsidiary of Sony Pictures), wants to remake an English version, complete with original writer/director Gareth Evans!

As of now, reports are that Evans has declined the offer and will instead focus on a sequel, which will begin filming in February.

You can check out the NSFW Restricted trailer for THE RAID below.  (Keep in mind, the NSFW is because of the extreme violence.)  After you check it out, let us know what you think: is Hollywood going too far looking for cash cows, instead of creating some of their own?

The Invisible Man Movie Trailer Looks Terrifying

Published

on

The idea of being invisible has intrigued us for more than 100 years. HG Wells released his book The Invisible Man in 1897 and we’ve been obsessed with the idea ever since. Leave it to Hollywood (and the incredible actress Elisabeth Moss) to find a new way to have us on the edge of our seats. This one has endless opportunities for jump scares (those sudden out of nowhere startling moments that I hate because they’re so damned effective) and the plot set up is pretty compelling. I’ll be there for this one!

The Invisible man hits Theaters February 28 https://www.TheInvisibleManMovie.com
