This is Evans’s second Netflix movie, following his 2018 horror Apostle, which starred Dan Stevens. The director made his name with the acclaimed 2012 Indonesian martial arts movie The Raid, which was followed by 2014’s The Raid 2. He also co-created and directed much of the highly-praised gang thriller series Gangs of London, which was released by AMC in the US last year.
