THE NIGHT COMES FOR US Lands North American Distribution

Following news of its worldwide sales back in November of last year, Radius/TWC has officially now acquired the North American rights to director Timo Tjahjanto's latest collaborative efforts with Merantau Films and XYZ Films for the new film, The Night Comes For Us. The news arrives on the eve of the forthcoming premieres of two films from both partnering production companies, Tjahjanto's latest co-directorial action horror thriller, Killers with director Kimo Stamboel, and filmmaker Gareth Evans' upcoming sequel crime saga installment, The Raid 2: Berandal.


The Night Comes For Us sees action star Joe Taslim (The Raid, Fast And Furious 6) leading the way as a gangland enforcer named Ito who returns from a stint abroad, and is forced to deal with internal war brewing in his own local crime family while plotting its own campaign of territorial expansion. The film will reunite several names from The Raid franchise, which brings Taslim back to the set once more with actor Yayan Ruhian, with further casting info to be announced soon, and Evans directing the action. The Raid 2: Berandal lead actor Iko Uwais joins Evans solely to design the fight sequences for the film, blending Mixed Martial Arts with Indonesian martial arts style, Silat, incorporated with Taslim's own familiar territory in the style of Judo.

The Night Comes For Us begins filming in the next few months, and is slated for a 2015 release, while Tjahjanto's new film, Killers, expected to release on February 1 and 8 in Japan and Indonesia, respectively. Evans will debut his new film, The Raid 2: Berandal tomorrow night at the Sundance Film Festival before releasing the film worldwide beginning in New Zealand and Australia on March 27, followed by March 28 in Indonesia and North America courtesy of Sony Pictures and Stage 6 Films, and future dates pending.
