THE RAID Director Gareth Evans Teams Up with Tom Hardy for Netflix’s Action-Thriller HAVOC!

By: John M Jerva

It looks like Gareth Evans will be working with Netflix for a while as The Raid franchise Helmer has signed an exclusive deal with the streaming service to make multiple projects through producing and directing. The deal has Evans teaming up with Tom Hardy for the first movie under the deal which will be the intense action-thriller called Havoc.

Per Deadline: Evans will write and direct the pic as well as produce for One More One Productions, as will Hardy, Ed Talfan for Severn Screen and Aram Tertzakian for XYZ Films. The story is set after a drug deal gone wrong, when a bruised detective must fight his way through a criminal underworld to rescue a politician’s estranged son, while unraveling a deep web of corruption and conspiracy that ensnares his entire city.

Evans has already worked with Netflix in the past on the thriller The Apostle which was a change of pace for the director who is best known for hard hitting Indonesian actioners like The Raid films as well as Merantau which brought Iko Uwais into the spotlight as well as the martial art of Pencak Silat. Evans most recently co-created the UK gangster series Gangs of London which was a critical and audience success.

Hardy is no stranger to action having starred in Mad Max Fury Road as well as the comic book adaptation Venom which will see him return for the sequel this year called Venom Let There Be Carnage.
