One of this year’s more welcome surprises was director Gareth Evans’ martial arts thriller The Raid.  Though Evans likely had plenty of offers on the table in the wake of The Raid’s success, he chose to move forward with a direct sequel as his follow-up.  The Raid star Iwo Uwais is already confirmed to return in the more ambitious sequel, titled Berandal, and now Evans has unveiled a list of actors who will be joining the pic.

Per Twitch, Julie Estelle (Macabre) has been set in the role of Hammer Girl, with Alex Abbad (Merantau), Marsha Timothy (The Forbidden Door), Mathias Muchus, and Tio Pakusadewo rounding out the cast.  Silat practictioner Cecep Arif Rahman was also previously announced as starring in a major role in the film, but as someone incredibly unfamiliar with the world of martial arts, none of these names ring a bell for me.  That said, I look forward to seeing what kind of exciting fight sequences Evans cooks up with Berandal.
