Princpal photography wrapped on Tuesday for the filming leg of writer and director Timo Tjahjanto’s solo directorial debut, The Night Comes For Us. Production on the pic took a near-seven year evolution and finally went underway last December with scenes filmed in and around Jakarta, Indonesia for its seventy-six day shoot following its resurrection last August.
The film sees the return of actor Joe Taslim (Furious 6, Star Trek: Beyond) for his debut lead role as Ito, a gangland enforcer arriving from his stint at abroad and home to his crime family in Jakarta only to find himself caught in a web of turmoil, treachery and violent upheaval. Reuniting with Taslim is action star Iko Uwais following their appearance together in Gareth Evans’s The Raid (2011), while casting familars from Tjahjanto’s resume include the additions of Julie Estelle, Epy Kusandar, Sunny Pang, Zack Lee, Hannah Al Rashid and Shareefa Daanish with Abimanya Aryasatya and actress Salvita Decorte also starring.
Kimo Stamboel is also producing with XYZ Films’s Nick Spicer with Todd Brown serving as executive producer, and action sequences coordinated by Uwais along with Very Tri Yulisman. As far as the usual processes go, expect this one to start trickling out later this year and on through 2018 with exact premiere dates and releases pending.
Uwais, Estelle and Pang can currently be seen in the latest Mo Bros’ action-packed thriller, Headshot, now available on VoD from XYZ Films and Vertical Entertainment.
