Gareth Evans, creator of The Raid movies is heading for the small screen for his latest project. Gangs Of London will be a big-budget gangland drama for HBO’s Cinemax and Sky Atlantic, making it the first move to TV drama for the filmmaker.

Unrelated to the PSP video game of the same name, Gangs Of London is described only as a drama, which will launch in 2019, and is set in contemporary London, which is being torn apart by the power struggles of numerous international gangs. The series begins as the head of one gang is assassinated and the power vacuum that results threatens the fragile peace between the other underworld organizations.

The Raid

The series is based on an original idea by Evans and Matt Flannery, who has worked alongside Evans as cinematographer on a number of his films, including the highly-regarded Raid series, which stand as some of the best action filmmaking of the last decade and starred Iko Uwais, who has become a bit of an cult-action icon as of late. The script will be written by the two collaborators along with Peter Berry, Clare Wilson, and Joe Murtagh.

Jane Featherstone, Anna Ferguson, Thomas Benski and Lucas Ochoa will executive produce. Evans is finishing up production on his next film, the period feature Apostle starring Dan Stevens, Lucy Boynton, and Michael Sheen, which follows a man who attempts to rescue his sister who’s been kidnapped by a religious cult.

Deathstroke

Evans is also in early talks to write and direct the Deathstroke solo film for DC and Warner Bros., which will most likely star Joe Manganiello, who [SPOILER] played the character in this past weekend’s Justice League.
