Back in February, we reported that Sony Pictures acquired the rights to a sequel for the popular action-thriller The Raid: Redemption. We haven't heard much about this follow-up, entitled Berandal since then, except that Gareth Evans is returning to direct. Yesterday, the filmmaker teased new details regarding Berandal through his Twitter account, revealing the story will take place just hours after The Raid: Redemption's ending, and that production is scheduled to take place very soon.



Iko Uwais is believed to reprise his role as Rama in Berandal, although no further casting details have been revealed. With a production start date just weeks away, hopefully more details will be unveiled regarding this action-packed follow-up.

The Raid: Redemption was released March 23rd, 2012 and stars Iko Uwais, Joe Taslim, Doni Alamsyah, Yayan Ruhian, Pierre Gruno, Ray Sahetapy, Tegar Satrya, Iang Darmawan. The film is directed by Gareth Evans.

The Raid 2 was released March 28th, 2014 and stars Iko Uwais, Julie Estelle, Yayan Ruhian, Doni Alamsyah, Arifin Putra, Oka Antara, Tio Pakusodewo, Ryuhei Matsuda. The film is directed by Gareth Evans.

    I think "The Raid" was better as a standalone film, but I'm more than willing to change my mind, given the right material.

    @bawnian-dexeus -- Get to it.
