Yayan "Mad Dog" Ruhian Joins Miike's YAKUZA APOCALYPSE
People who have seen either of the two The Raid films will be familiar with Yayan Ruhian, who played the brutal adversary Mad Dog in the first film, and pivotal assassin Prakoso in the sequel. In a series full of excellent martial arts performances, he still managed to stand out.

Now, according to Screendaily he has been cast as an international assassin in Miike Takashi's upcoming Yakuza Apocalypse: The Great War of the Underworld. In the film, a low-tier yakuza, played by Ichihara Hayato, discovers his boss is a vampire. When he becomes one himself, the battle against another gang turns epic.

Nikkatsu produces, and aims to have the film in cinemas in 2015.

Just when this movie could not get any more gonzo, out of nowhere, Mad Dog shows up! Pure awesomeness!

It's funny how he can be cast now since the film already finished shooting.

Productions in Japan are often announced during shooting (on-set press conference) or after principal photography. Additional casting news is sometimes held back due to talent agency demands. In this case it was to drop a bomb in Cannes.

Cast? Yayan has finished shooting his part. I heard he plays Kyouken (Mad Dog) - not sure if this a prequel to The Raid (kidding). The character is an international assassin who's preying on yakuza's vampire. So it should be quite an important role. He deserves it.
