Back in September 2014, pre-production for The Night Comes For Us – an anticipated action film by Indonesian director Timo Tjahjanto of the “Mo Brothers” directing duo (Macabre, Killers, Headshot) – was halted for unknown reasons. But now, according to Tjahjanto himself, The Night is definitely in full swing.
The Night Comes For Us is a neo-noir hitman thriller that stars Joe Taslim (The Raid), Sunny Pang (Headshot) and Julie Estelle (The Raid 2, Macabre, Headshot). The Iko Uwais Team (Headshot), headed by Iko Uwais (The Raid) and Very Tri Yulisman (The Raid 2), is handing the film’s fight and action choreography.
Taslim plays Ito, a gangland enforcer, caught amidst a treacherous and violent insurrection within his Triad crime family upon his return home from a stint abroad.
Production on The Night Comes For Us is currently wrapping up, so we should hear more soon. Until then, if you haven’t seen Headshot, it’s currently available on Amazon, iTunes and just about every streaming/VOD service out there.
