Joe Carnahan To Remake The Raid, Forgets Dredd Already Did

Joe also can't decide whether its a remake or a reimagining

Director Joe Carnahan took to Twitter today to announce his remake of The Raid, alongside actor Frank Grillo. The Raid is a 2011 Indonesian martial arts action survival film written and directed by Welsh filmmaker Gareth Evans. It stars Iko Uwais as a special tactics officer preparing for a raid on a high-rise apartment block in Jakarta's slums. In case you missed it, this is the same exact plot to 2012's Dredd, except it takes place in Mega-City One, instead of Jakarta.


Joe Carnahan tried to alleviate some of the negative feelings regarding the remake, by mentioning Evans involvement.



Then only a few minutes later replied to a "rabid-fanboy-from-Hell" that the film isn't a remake, but a reimagining. Kind of like what Dredd did.



Carnahan is an American director best known for NarcSmokin' AcesThe A-Team, and The Grey. His latest film was 2014's Stretch.
