``Director Gareth Evans has said that The Raid 3 will be set before the events of The Raid 2.
He added that he is planning to take a break from martial arts movies for a while before filming it.
‘Hopefully in about two or three years, we will have that ready’ Yahoo Movies reports him as saying, ‘I don’t want to do it straight away, I want to take a break from martial arts for a little bit and try something else.’
He went on: ‘The third one will be slightly different from the first two – very different actually.
‘The idea is that part two started one or two hours after The Raid finished so it’s a continuation of the story. The Raid 3 will start one of two hours before The Raid 2 finishes, so we go back in time a little bit and branch off. So it’ll be something different but interesting.``
Sounds good to us, we here at the Premiere really enjoyed both the Raid and Raid 2 and can`t wait to see a third from Gareth Evans. Hopefully he can avoid the second sequel curse that many movie franchises seem to suffer from.
Here are some great EX3 related pics, the ones with just Sly are from an advert he did in character as Barney Ross!
