The Raid remake is totally happening

Now don't act surprised. If you've seen the thrilling 2011 Indonesian action flick The Raid, then you'll have wondered, whether you wanted it or not, when the Hollywood remake was coming.

Well, very soon is the answer. Although the film, which centres on a rookie cop taking down pretty much everyone in a grimy tower block, already bears a striking resemblance to Dredd, an English language remix is coming our way anyway.

It's just been announced that Patrick Hughes will be taking on directing duties. Hughes is best known for Aussie western Red Hill and he's behind The Expendables 3, out later this year.

The script comes from Brad Inglesby, who recently scripted Christian Bale drama Out of the Furnace, and most surprisingly, original director Gareth Evans, will be producing.

Casting wise, they're apparently after Chris and Liam Hemsworth to play the lead brothers. Production will start later this year.

In the meantime, The Raid 2: Berndal, which is utterly incredible, will hit cinemas in April.

Here are other upcoming remakes you might be a bit touchy about...
