Evans wrote and will direct the Netflix project that will shoot in Wales.
Tom Hardy has teamed up with Gareth Evans, the filmmaker behind the action films The Raid and The Raid 2, for the crime thriller, Havoc.In Havoc, Hardy will play a detective who, after a drug deal gone wrong, must fight his way through a criminal underworld to rescue a politician’s estranged son.

A late June start date in Wales is being eyed. Evans has an affinity for Wales as that is where he shot his 2018 period horror movie, Apostle, which was also produced by Savern and XYZ.

The filmmaker, who edits and choreographs his films, burst on the scene with his Indonesian martial arts flicks Marantau and The Raid, taking it to epic levels with the latter’s expansive sequel, The Raid 2. His last work was Gangs of London, a gritty crime saga he co-created, that aired on Sky and AMC.

Hardy is next on the big-screen with Venom: Let There Be Carnage in which he reprises his role as the Spider-Man anti-hero. The Sony picture is currently scheduled for a June 25, 2021 opening.
