Iko Uwais is the badass Indonesian action star behind the two Raid installments and cameoed as one of the “little freaks” from Kanjiklub in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
His next starring role will be in the action flick Headshot, which seems to be taking a lot of action influence from the recent Raid 2, as it looks just as gorgeous and brutal at the same time.
Uwais plays a young man who washes ashore, an amnesiac with a serious head injury whose past comes back to haunt him shortly after being nursed back to health by a young doctor. Violence ensues. Sweet, sweet violence.
The film directed by Kimo Stamboel and Timo Tjahjanto (also wrote it) will be making it’s North America debut at the Toronto International Film Festival.
