The Raid 2 will be one of the hottest tickets at Sundance next year, but general audiences won’t have to wait too long to see director Gareth Evans‘ next bout of action insanity.  Sony Pictures Classics and Stage 6 Films have announced that they will be releasing the movie on March 28, 2014.  Per the press release, The Raid 2 “picks up right where the first film left off and follows Rama (Iko Uwais) as he goes undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force.”  Since Sony Pictures Classics is an indie distributor, I assume The Raid 2 will get a limited release and expand in the following weeks, so it won’t really be in competition with any wide release movie.

Hit the jump for the press release.  The film also stars Julie Estelle (Macabre), Alex Abbad (Merantau), Marsha Timothy (The Forbidden Door), Mathias Muchus, Tio Pakusadewo, and Cecep Arif Rahman.
