After seeing how insanely badass The Raid 2 was, I was really hoping that director Gareth Evans would make a third one. It looks like he's definitely planning on it! During an interview with Crave Online he says that The Raid 3 would overlap with The Raid 2 in terms of narrative chronology. As for the actual production of the film, it doesn't look like it will happen anytime soon:
I’m not touching The Raid 3 for a couple of years from now. I don’t have any plans to do The Raid 3 within the next two or three years so I’m going to take a break from that franchise for a bit. I want to do some things outside of Indonesia for like two films, then come back to Indonesia and shoot The Raid 3.
Sounds good to me! I can wait a couple years for another Raid film, and in the meantime Evans is still going to be making movies that I'm sure we'll all enjoy. He even plans to reteam with The Raid star Iko Uwais on one of those films,
“I have another one I want to shoot with him first. Still in the action genre and it’s something that he needs to train for for a fair amount of time. You have to make good with some weaponry, my friend.”
I already can't wait to see what they are working on!
