Recently Joe Carnahan and Frank Grillo announced that they will be teaming up to produce an American remake of the hit Indonesian action film “The Raid,” and now the two have followed up that announcement with an interview with Collider.

All of these changes have the approval of the original film’s director, Gareth Evans, who is producing the film, and told Carnahan and Grillo after extensively discussing their project: “Go make your version.

Uncharted movie remake was written with an R-rating in mind.
Narc and The A-Team filmmaker Joe Carnahan has got a ton of projects on the go at the moment.

Primarily concerned with the difficult transition from freewheelin’ bohemian twenties to stable, child-having, marrying thirties, writer/director Rafael Palacio Illingworth serves up a slice of life broadly recognizable to… well, let’s be blunt here, the kind of people who watch low-budget indie relationship dramas.
Our unhappy couple is Henry and Dianne (Ben Feldman and Olivia Thirlby). They’re stood right on the border of maturity, yet currently wrapped up in a quasi-poverty daydream lifestyle. As they view a minimalist, sensible apartment out in suburbia, Henry’s paranoias surface in a premonition of his cherished no-consequences bohemian lifestyle vanishing in a puff of Ikea furniture and the distant echo of baby rattles. »
