THE RAID's Iko Uwais And Yayan Ruhian Join BEYOND SKYLINE
If we did not have a reason to watch Beyond Skyline, the upcoming sequel to the hope-dashing 2010 film Skyline, the World might just let out a collective 'Damnit! Now I have to see this!' after reading the following cast additions.
Variety is reporting that Iko Uwais and Yayan Ruhian, stars and fight choreographers from The Raid films, have joined the cast and will choreograph the fights for Liam O'Donnell's sci-fi film. Uwais will play the leader of an underground resistance group when aliens invade Earth.
Greg Strause, one of the first film's directors is producing along with his brother Colin, Matthew Chausse and Mike Wiluan. Filming is set to begin in Indonesia in December. Hey, that is convenient. That's where those guys live!
Strause told Variety he hired Uwais and Ruhian because, "We're showcasing a new kind of alien combat, so who better to collaborate with than the most innovative fight team in the world?"
