Last year brought word that Frank Grillo was to head up a remake of The Raid, with The Grey’s Joe Carnahan to direct. Now though, there’s word that this Raid remake is no longer a, err, Raid remake.
Courtesy of Collider, Carnahan and Grillo revealed that the film is now an original story titled Zeno.
As Grillo explained, “We own the script that we wrote. We parted ways with XYZ, who own the title but not the script. We are right now negotiating with a big name.”
So, this Raid remake may no longer be labelled a Raid remake, but the story will seemingly be similar in its setting and part of its premise.
Zeno is the title of this new film and similarly the name of the movie’s main character – which will seemingly be Frank Grillo.
As ever, expect more on Zeno as it continues to develop.
