'Captain America' star Frank Grillo joins 'The Raid' remake
(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.
