(CBR) The U.S. remake of "The Raid" has been delayed, but that’s not stopping the casting process from moving forward.

Actor Frank Grillo has confirmed that he has a role to play in the "Raid" remake, helmed by "The Expendables 3" director Patrick Hughes. The "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" actor dropped the news in an interview with We Got This Covered, saying:

“What people don’t know is that I’m a blackbelt in jujitsu, which I’ve been for 20 years, and I’ve been boxing since I’ve been 15 years old – those are things that come natural to me. Believe it or not, I just got hired to do [the remake of] 'The Raid' … I loved [the original] … we’ve got to do this justice. It’s a fanboy favorite.”

Production on "The Raid" is expected to begin in January.
