We're a mere 8 days away from the March 28th release of The Raid 2: Berandal here in the US but director Gareth Evans is already discussing The Raid 3. Talking to Variety, Evans stated, "If this one is two hours after ‘The Raid’ finished, ‘Raid 3′ starts three hours before ‘The Raid 2′ finishes. So you go back in time a little and then branch off for a different story." Sounds as if Evans, at the very least, has an outline for the story. However, he proceeded this statement with this disheartening caveat regarding the film's producers that are anxious for a third installment. "[The producers are] going to have to wait a while. I don’t want to do it for three years, maybe. I do have a concept in mind." Bummer.

Today I'm going to be the Bellend that says FIRST!

As for the Raid 3, like the sound of the idea & the fact it could already hint at a 4th to follow.

As long the script is great, then the more Raid the better!!!

Bring it!

Mr Evans would be a good choice to direct a Daredevil movie.

thank god. Im glad he's not rushing it through. I love the Raid series and can't wait for Berendal. If he needs to take his time, take your sweet [frick]ing time my friend.

Why can't I find a session for this anywhere?!?? It's coming out in less than a week here and no one has locked down session times! Useless.

Wow, that looks nuts! I'm excited for it and I haven't even seen the first one yet!

Give this guy a Heroes for Hire movie and let him do it 'R'. I want to see Iron Fist done like this!

Gareth Evans should make a X-Men or Black Panther movie.
