It's certainly something that filmmaker Kellie Madison has been wondering in the wake of momentum drawn to actress and stuntwoman Amy Johnston, followed by Madison's own fondness for Pencak Silat as portrayed in the 2011 Indo-action crime hit, The Raid, and it's co-starring villain played by actor Yayan Ruhian. With this, Johnston, whose credits include Iron Man 3 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as well as web projects like Kung Fu Femmes and the electrifying Epic Rival/Thousand Pounds action show pilot, Clandestine, is just the person Madison is now relying on with Ruhian to help manifest her latest idea for a grand new television show action fans can truly be proud of with the current Kickstarter campaign for The Gate, following last week's stunning announcement!
