STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Adds THE RAID Trio

Iko Uwais Cecep Arif Rahman

According to the good folks over at Twitch, terrifying martial arts actors Iko Uwais, Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman (“The Assassin” who fought in the kitchen finale of The Raid 2) from Gareth EvansThe Raid movies will appear in J.J. Abrams‘ Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens in some capacity.

While I’d be surprised to see the martial arts style The Raid movies brought us, I can definitely see the pacing and tone set for some of the action scenes. The leading man Uwais and Mad Dog/Prakoso actor Ruhian choreographed the films, so it’s very possible they were hired both to act and work out a scene. However, I have no indication of what characters they’ll be playing yet. Likely Darth Maul’s three brothers out for revenge against the Jedi. Just kidding.

The upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens will debut in theaters on December 18, 2015, also starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Anderson, Christina Chong and Miltos Yerolemou.
