We spoke to Scott Adkins about awesome martial arts epic Ninja: Shadow Of A Tear (out on DVD and Blu-ray on May 12 - expect a feature on the site soon) and while we had him, we decided to ask about another epic martial arts franchise, The Raid .
If they absolutely have to remake Gareth Evans' incredible Indonesian action flick in the US, we can't think of many better people to star in it than Adkins - so we asked him if he was aware of the project.
Are you a fan of The Raid and, if so, would you be interested in being part of the remake?
"I’m a huge fan, I’m a massive fan, and this is no secret: I’m friends with Gareth. And, absolutely, of course I would love to, that’s all I’ll say at this point."
Is that something you’re talking to people about?
"I’ve spoken to Gareth about it, he’s an executive producer, he’s going to let other people create their version of it, he’s not going to get too involved. I know Gareth would like to work with me in the future – hopefully that does happen.
"I’m a massive fan, I cannot wait to see Raid 2 . Just yesterday we watched that deleted scene , how amazing is that for a deleted scene? The guy is a poet, t he guy is a poet . he’s so much more than an action director."
Ninja: Shadow Of A Tear is out on Blu-ray and DVD on May 12 and you can pre-order it here .
