Before you start commenting about how everything has a sequel these days, it should be noted that for director Gareth Evans, a trilogy for "The Raid" has been the plan for a while now. The filmmaker hasn't been shy in sharing his ambitious plans for his breakout franchise, and with "The Raid 2" gearing up to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival soon, he'll likely been spilling a few more details about what his third installment will contain. But for now, he's giving audiences a heads up for where it will fit in.

Before you start commenting about how everything has a sequel these days, it should be noted that for director Gareth Evans, a trilogy for "The Raid" has been the plan for a while now. The filmmaker hasn't been shy in sharing his ambitious plans for his breakout franchise, and with "The Raid 2" gearing up to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival soon, he'll likely been spilling a few more details about what his third installment will contain. But for now, he's giving audiences a heads up for where it will fit in.

The filmmaker recently shared some details on Twitter (compiled by Dark Horizons) and it looks like "The Raid 3" is going to have some interesting overlap with part two. " 'The Raid 2' takes place two hours after the first, 'The Raid 3' would start two hours before 'The Raid 2' ends," he teased. It seems like the narrative for this series is going to move at an unrelenting pace.

And when it comes to the recent trailer, Evans says it's barely a hint of what's to come. "The trailer is 2min 35sec and with the exception of one shot, it’s all new footage from the teaser. Only spoilers for Act 1 setup," he tweeted. "Naturally, there’s a ton of stuff we have kept hidden from the trailer. About 4/5 action scenes don’t feature at all."

And believe it or not, there is already deleted scenes to look forward to. "We had a 3min 45s steadicam scene in a club but we cut it for pacing reasons. All deleted scenes will be on Blu-Ray/DVD. I’ll do a commentary track, hopefully this one will be more interesting," he also shared. Damn.

"The Raid 2" hits on March 28, 2014, and while you might think Evans will dive straight into "The Raid 3," last we heard, he'll be taking a brief break to make an English-language film first. Details are under wraps (though, as always, plans could change).
