The Raid Sequel “Berandal” In The Works
The sequel to the world wide hit movie “The Raid” is on the go with director Gareth Evans already having a script from 2010 for a different movie and will change a few things to make it into the sequel for The Raid.
Iko Uwais will once again be the main star in the movie, which will be about his character trying to escape from a very violent prison and save his own life before being killed. This here is the original script from 2010 and like i said, the overall plot will change before shooting begins.
Rama, a young man in his mid-20s sits on a toilet looking down at his feet contemplating just how he got here, just how he ended up wearing that prison uniform and just how his name ended up just a string of numbers printed onto his pocket. Once a food stall seller, an act of defense cost him his freedom, his liberty and the love of his fiancé Dwi.
Detained for 5 years after leaving her attacker paralysed in a fit of rage, Rama arrives in a maximum-security prison alone and not accustomed to the criminal world. Instantly a target for the gangs that fight against each other for supremacy and control he is taken in by Uco, the son of a leading gangster, Bangun.
Initially at war with each other, their friendship is sealed after an attempt on Uco’s life by his own men during a prison riot sees Rama step in and save him from certain death. Vowing to be there for him when he is finally released, five years later, after serving his time, the gates open and Rama steps out into a new life taken in by Uco’s underworld organisation.
Igniting Uco’s ambition Bejo, a small-time hood leader with plans of up scaling his operations seizes the opportunity to convince this headstrong son that now is the time for him to assume control of his father’s organization. Controlling him like a puppet in a downward spiral of murder, betrayal and corruption Rama’s friendship to Uco is tested to breaking point as their paths begin to drift.
Losing sight of loyalty, friendship even blood ties Uco is consumed by his increasing power as he creates a gang war taking out his Father’s most trusted men and pinning the blame on their rivals. A choice must be made between the power on the throne, or its reckless inheritor. Every move Rama makes will test his loyalty, every decision will change his path leading him further into the violence and bloodshed he is so desperate, yet so powerless to escape.
After the success of the first movie, it was only a matter of time before we would get to see a sequel and from the script idea i have read, i am sure it will be another huge success. I am a big fan of prison movies as you know it will be brutal and have lots of fight scenes throughout. The movie will probably get a 2013 release if they start filming this year, lets hope so anyway.
Here is the original teaser trailer for the movie in 2010, enjoy.
