Indonesian_TheRaid_actor__Yakuza-Apocalypse-2Finally! This is Yayan Ruhian‘s (Merantau, The Raid, The Raid 2) international debut. The Indonesian action actor plays as one of the international assassins in Takashi Miike’s Yakuza Apocalypse for the next year release in Japan.

In this “world’s first yakuza vampire movie“, Yayan will show his Silat martial art again and meet Japanese actor Hayato Ichihara (Rookies, God’s Puzzle).

The Japanese studio already has an Indonesian connection as it recently co-produced Killers, directed by Indonesia’s Kimo Stamboel and Timo Tjahjanto.

Scripted by Yoshitaka Yamaguchi, Yakuza Apocalypse stars Ichihara as a yakuza underling who discovers his boss is a bloodsucker, only to get bitten himself before going up against a gang of deadly international assassins.

Go Yayan! Go! ;)
