The Raid: Redemption

(2012)

As a rookie member of an elite special-forces team, Rama is instructed to hang back during a covert mission involving the extraction of a brutal crime lord from a rundown fifteen-story apartment block. But when a spotter blows their cover, boss Tama offers lifelong sanctuary to every killer, rapist and thief in the building in exchange fortheir heads. Now Rama must stand in for the team's fallen leader and use every iota of his fighting strength - winding through every floor and every room to complete the mission and escape with his life.

First Look at ‘The Raid’ Cast as ‘Star Wars 7’ Kanjiklub Gang

Back in January, it was announced that a trio of actors from the cult action classic The Raid: Redemption had joined Star Wars: The Force Awakens. At the time, it wasn't revealed who they would be playing. But just a few short months later, we would get our first look at these characters courtesy of a Millennium Flacon LEGO set and its mini-figs. Now, we have complete confirmation on who two of these three actors are playing.

It is speculated that the smaller picture of the one unnamed character is Cecep Arif Rahman, the third actor from The Raid: Redemption appearing in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But that has not been confirmed at this time. From the photos, we do get a good look at some of the weapons used by this gang. And if you look really close, you may notice that Tasu Leech is standing inside the Millennium Falcon. Before the Falcon Lego set appeared, it had already been rumored that there was a new owner of Han Solo and Chewbacca's iconic ship, and when we're reintroduced to them here, some thirty years after we last saw them in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, Han and Chewy are trying to get their baby back. Hence, the line, 'Chewy, we're home.' It has long been speculated that the Kanjiklub are the ones who are in possession of the Falcon at the start of the movie.

Back in February, we reported that Sony Pictures acquired the rights to a sequel for the popular action-thriller The Raid: Redemption. We haven't heard much about this follow-up, entitled Berandal since then, except that Gareth Evans is returning to direct. Yesterday, the filmmaker teased new details regarding Berandal through his Twitter account, revealing the story will take place just hours after The Raid: Redemption's ending, and that production is scheduled to take place very soon.
