Is "KL Gangster 3" Doomed?
The first film, KL Gangster, released in 2011, ultimately becoming a blockbuster success upon earning nearly $4 million from a $500K budget. And with the reported success of this year's prequelized follow-up thusfar despite its budget being four times bigger than its predecessor, and the looming threat of piracy worldwide, a big question mark surrounds the prospects of a third film, and whether or not Yusof decides to helm it.
Despite the best efforts of Malek (Aaron Aziz), his younger brother, petty drug dealer Jai (Adi Putra), sinks deeper and deeper into the world of gangland activity and organised crime. When a series of tragedies befall their family, Malek has no choice but to join one of the gangs and plays a pivotal part in an all-out turf war instigated by violent rival gang leader Tailong (Rosyam Nor).
