It’s about time we get more movies showcasing how awesome Philly is!
Here are the details from PhillyVoice:
- Gareth Evans teaming up with Michael Bay and Patrick Hughes to produce a Netflix remake of the film “The Raid” that will be based on an elite undercover DEA task force in Philadelphia, where the feds are attempting to navigate a drug cartel in order to take down its kingpin.
- The film will be set in Philadelphia’s drug-infested “Badlands,” though it’s not yet clear whether the movie will actually be filmed in the city. Netflix is behind the upcoming Adam Sandler film “Hustle,” which filmed at various locations in Philadelphia and the surrounding area last year.
