Netflix Set to Remake Martial Arts Film Favorite "The Raid"
"The Raid," the story of an Indonesian police S.W.A.T. team trapped inside a drug dealer's apartment complex, was essentially an hour-and-a-half long, hyper-kinetic fight scene that thrust it's star, Iko Uwais, into international prominence as his displays of pencak silat wowed action film fans. The reboot is slated to follow a DEA task force as they battle their way through the drug-infested "Badlands" of Philadelphia. It's unclear whether the action scenes will primarily feature gunplay or once again have a heavy emphasis on martial arts.
