Ingelsby Pens “The Raid” Remake

Brad Ingelsby (“The Low Dweller,” “Run All Night”) has been hired to pen the script for the remake of “The Raid” at Screen Gems and XYZ Films says Deadline.

The Gareth Evans-directed Indonesian martial arts film follows the surviving members of a police riot squad who’ve become trapped in a derelict apartment building with the worst criminals in the city.

Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group scored both domestic distribution and remake rights back at Cannes last year. The original is slated for release by Sony Pictures Classics on March 23rd.
