A new Netflix project, Havoc, is set to be filmed in Cymru this summer.


The film will be directed by Welshman Gareth Evans, who was born and raised in Hirwaun. He is best known for his 2011 film 'The Raid'.


The film represents the first project for Evans following an exclusive deal he has agreed with Netflix to write and direct films for the studio.


The action thriller will be one of the biggest films ever to be produced in Cymru, with Tom Hardy and Forest Whitaker on board to star.


The production will be supported by Creative Wales, and filmed at locations across the south.


Gareth Evans said: “I’m really excited to be making Havoc in Wales. It has all the ingredients we need - talent, locations, facilities and support. Having made Apostle here in 2017 and key parts of Gangs Of London in 2019, we know what Wales has to offer, and it was always our hope that we could bring this major production to Wales”
