THE RAID's Gareth Huw Evans Is Going To The Big Dance - Movie Wise That Is...
Well this is great news about a great bloke. Gareth Huw Evans, director of Indonesian action films Merantau and TIFF Midnight Madness Audience Award winner The Raid - a couple films you might have heard about on these pages - has signed on with talent agency WME. Quite simply the largest agency of its kind in the world WME has been representing and represented other filmmakers like Danny Boyle, Guillermo Del Toro, Martin Scorsese, Clint Eastwood, Ridley Scott. That is pretty good company to keep.
Hopefully this will work out that Gareth will be able to keep making films in Indonesia while picking up larger commercial projects here in North America. We wish Gareth nothing but the best opportunities to keep bringing us kick-ass cinema.
