Gareth Evans Interested In R-Rated Iron Fist & Comic Book Movies

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:13374:]]

With Iron Fist coming to Netflix, perhaps one day the hero for hire will make it to the big screen.

One name being mentioned as a favorite amongst fans to direct an Iron Fist movie is Gareth Evans, director of The Raid movies, which are Indonesion flicks filled with brutal martial arts and action moves.

Speaking with Total Film (via Marvel Movies fan Facebook), Evans states he would be definitely interested, but only if Iron Fist could be R-rated.

Totally, yeah. I’m not averse to it. My big thing right now is figuring out how to do that action style – and would someone like Marvel let me do a R-rated movie?

This isn’t me going against PG-13 movies, it’s just that the way I shoot action, it doesn’t need to be bloody or aggressive or ‘stabby stabby’ with knives, but it’s about when someone swings a punch and there’s a connection there, I’m not going to hide that with a camera. I get involved with the guys in that choreography design so I can understand the intricacies of what they’ve done, so that when I shoot it, what the camera angles should be and the editing should be, it’s doing justice to all the work they’ve put into it.

In PG-13 action, you hide the chaos and fill it with sound. That’s something I can’t do. So [if I made a comic book movie], it’d have to be an R.

Check out the trailer for The Raid 2, which has a March 28th release:
