Best known for introducing the action mayhem of ‘The Raid’ franchise to the world, director GARETH EVANS is taking what he does best to the small screen with the gangster drama GANGS OF LONDON (working title) for HBO’s Cinemax and Sky Atlantic.

Based on Evans’ own original idea, the series is “set in contemporary London as it is being torn apart by power struggles involving several international gangs. The series begins as the head of one criminal gang is assassinated and the power vacuum threatens the fragile peace between the other underworld organizations”.

Stay tuned for more details as Evans have his plate quite full with the post-production of his upcoming thriller ‘Apostle’ and his eventual deal to helm DC’s ‘Deathstroke’ solo film.
