Producer gives Dredd 2 update: conversations happening, but no script

So, about that proposed sequel to DREDD. Yeah, we all want it to happen. Even star Karl Urban has been extremely vocal about wanting it to go forward. Judgment is coming, indeed...it just may take a while.

We recently heard from Karl Urban that 'conversations are taking place' on DREDD 2 and while that has been confirmed by DREDD producer Adi Shankar, we may need to pump the brakes a little bit. Speaking to Dweebcast, Shankar shared that while there are some conversations going on to get a sequel moving, those conversations do not mean a sequel is forthcoming, sharing...

"I'm going to tread lightly here. I feel like Karl made a small statement and it got blown way out of proportion by news sites. Yeah, there are conversations going on...but there's no fucking script".

Shankar says he's leading the charge for a new DREDD film, but went on to explain the difficulties he's up against:

"The movie, it wasn't a studio movie, it was an independent movie. That changes the dynamic immensely, because every country has a different distributor who bought the movie, Every one of those distributors has to sign off."

So summarize, DREDD fans shouldn't be holding their breath for a sequel anytime soon. Still, it could happen, but it will take a little bit of time. Shankar went on to share...

"The Mega City One universe, the 2000AD universe, it's so rich and so deep. Yes. I would obviously love to see a Dredd 2, or a Dredd TV series. There are so many avenues to go with this".

While I'd love a sequel to the film, I think I'd be even more stoked for a DREDD TV series. And seeing as how the Karl Urban-starring Fox series "Almost Human" just got cancelled...ah, that's just wishful thinking.

If we're lucky,maybe...

According to Box Office Mojo,the first ' Dredd ' actually lost quite a bit of money.They don't usally make sequels in that case.I hope it's gonna happen,cause the movie was great,but I wouldn't bet on it.One can always hope.

"Every one of those distributors has to sign off."

um ok sounds like every other independent movie...
1) write the script
2) start the process
3) get the distributors to sign off...again.
4) produce the sequel.

would rather have the movie as well. maybe if the tv show was on HBO or something. gotta have f bombs, heads exploding, drugs, tits, and urban. dude is a modern clint eastwood. anyone else thinking he'd be perfect for a remake of those old spaghetti westerns? these stupid articles keep coming up from time to time about the never happening sequel. just don't print another article until its official.

I'd rather see a movie TBH.
The ultra-violent action movies of the 80's shouldn't need an excuse for making a comeback. Dredd was a breath of fresh air in a genre that's lately been filled with PG-13 trash or needing big names behind it like the Expendables to warrant an R.
Back in the 80's you had to show nudity to get an R. Now all you need to do is drop an F-bomb and you're there.
