The new Raid movie isn’t strictly a remake, director Patrick Hughes has said. The upcoming film will be set in Philadelphia’s “Badlands,” and will follow a DEA task force undercover on the hunt for the city’s kingpin. 

“It’s not a remake as such, it’s a reimagining and it’s taking what was so incredibly crazy with that hook. It’s a very nitty-gritty, real world in that. Stepping into the straight action-thriller, but it’s on that saga level and that’s a project that I’m really, really excited about,” Hughes told (opens in new tab)
