THE RAID Star Iko Uwais Teams With The Mo Brothers For HEADSHOT
The Raid star Iko Uwais is on a bit of roll Soon to hit screens worldwide with a supporting part in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and also prepped to share lead billing with Ronda Rousey and Mark Wahlberg in Peter Berg's Mile 22 it would appear that Uwais has successfully made the transition to Hollywood. But what of the films that made him a star in the first place and the fans hungry to see him busting heads in his native Indonesia once again? Well, they don't have long to wait, either.

Uwais will next take the lead part in Headshot, the new Indonesian feature from Killers and Macabre directors The Mo Brothers. Now deep in pre-production with principal photography scheduled to begin at the end of the month, Headshot is produced by Mike Wiluan and Wicky Olindo for Screenplay Infinite Films and also stars Sunny Pang and Julie Estelle - yes, that'd be Hammer Girl from The Raid 2 - with Uwais and his stunt team handling action choreography.

Uwais plays a young man who washes ashore, an amnesiac with a serious head injury whose past comes back to haunt him shortly after being nursed back to health by a young doctor. Violence ensues. Sweet, sweet violence. Expect to see Headshot on the festival circuit at some point in 2016.

More about Headshot (Mo Brothers)

I wonder if Iko is in good or bad guy duties in The Force Awakens? Will keep my eye out for Headshot, I liked Killers, so its good to see the directors back to work..

AleksOctober 23, 2015 3:52 PM

Killers came this close to being great. And though Headshot's synopsis sounds anything but original, I hope they're on an upward spiral. Also wouldn't mind if they cast Kazuki Kitamura in any capacity again.

On a side-note: perhaps it has been covered, but what's the status on One Good Thing, Todd?

Todd BrownOctober 23, 2015 3:57 PM

Heh. Ironically enough, OGT more or less is in a holding pattern waiting for this to finish! The Mo Brothers are attached to do that as well, so it got trumped by Iko in this case. It's more or less just down to scheduling at this point, as soon as everyone is available it'll go.

AleksOctober 23, 2015 4:07 PM

Understandably so, I suppose. Iko is on fire.
Cool, thanks. Looking forward to it.

It's a shame The Night Comes For Us fell apart, looking forward to Headshot.

Daniel ParedesOctober 23, 2015 11:18 PM

Agreed Night Comes for Us sounded just way too awesome!

ToryKOctober 24, 2015 1:25 AM

Nice! This makes up for The Night Comes for Us. I'm hoping to catch to head to Toronto and catch my first film festival next year. Maybe I'll luck out and this'll be there.

SaverioOctober 24, 2015 2:05 AM

Timo tweeted me back. This is good news on 'The Night Comes For Us'!

mtertainmentOctober 24, 2015 1:02 PM

Especially since there was suuuuch a long gap between Macabre and Killers!

SolidusOctober 26, 2015 6:44 AM

Well, i heard they have insufficient fund for the making of the night comes for us. And i think this would be great idea to making money and continue TNCFU just like whay gareth's do on the raid 2

VyceVictusOctober 26, 2015 10:40 PM

Not directly related, but I'd figured this was a good place to ask: Todd, do you have any further comment/info about The Raid remake? Saw a story today saying both Taylor Kitch and the director dropped out.

Daniel ParedesOctober 27, 2015 12:38 AM

That is excellent news! Correct me if I'm wrong, was Yayan "Mad Dog" Ruhian attached to TNCFU?

SaverioOctober 27, 2015 5:46 AM

Yes sir he was!

Daniel ParedesOctober 27, 2015 11:42 PM

Awesome! I personally cant get enough of the guy, I think her was sorely wasted on Yakuza Apocalypse!

SaverioOctober 28, 2015 8:43 PM

I didn't watch 'Yakuza Apocalypse' cause I had a feeling that was gonna happen. I can't get enough of all the 'Raid' guys. They're the best in the biz by far.
