With principal photography on Berandal - the upcoming sequel to The Raid - now just weeks away a handful of new cast members have been announced. We know star Iko Uwais will be back but who will be joining him?
Julie Estelle (Macabre) will take the role of Hammer Girl with other parts going to Merantau baddie Alex Abbad, The Forbidden Door star Marsha Timothy, and local stars Mathias Muchus and Tio Pakusadewo. And here's one for those who are more concerned with who will be punching who than they are with who will be delivering the lines: Internationally renowned silat practitioner Cecep Arif Rahman has also signed on for a major part.
Writer-director Gareth Evans actually tweeted the Rahman news a while back, incredibly excited to have landed such a high profile martial arts expert, Rahman having traveled the world extensively to demonstrate his art in international competition. Is this the new Mad Dog? Check out the demonstration video below - someone is getting their wish, based on the video title - for a sample of what Rahman can do.
