Is there still a chance for a Dredd sequel?

02.24.2014

So what about that DREDD sequel? Well, what about it? Everyone wants it, but why isn’t it happening? I’ve seen plenty of shit sequels make their way to the big screen, and the one time it seems like we might all be unanimous on one decision, there’s some sort of hold up. Unfortunately, the sales at the box office didn’t do any talks of a second installment any favors, however, we’re still hearing about it.

When Karl Urban was asked about the possibility of a sequel to the film during the Las Vegas Star Wars Convention, the actor only had this to say:

Conversations are taking place.

Immediately my brain goes here:

Back in March of 2013, Producer Adi Shankar said that a Dredd short much like Punisher’s “Dirty Laundry” was in the works. Recently, Shankar said to be on the look out for that within the next few months. The producer vows that once he gets enough "street cred" that he is getting a follow-up made.

Let’s hope this is true. Dredd has managed to come up with enough money to at least get some pretty decent talks fired up.

Do you think that a sequel will come to fruition…eventually?

Yes, please. A sequel. Hopefully, it will be as tight (in regards to writing, directing, and action) as the initial film.

I also wouldn't mind seeing the gorgeous Olivia Thirlby returning now as Judge Anderson, but her story is already told. We have have to see another Judge that is paired with Dredd.

Indeed, I thoroughly enjoyed Dredd, and plan on getting it on DVD and Blu-ray.

NO ONE PUTS BABY IN THE CORNER!

Dredd will be back.
It will happen... and Quentin Tarantino will play Mean Machine Angel, all the way up to 4.

even direct to DVD

certainly id love to see dredd on the big screen again, . I get the impression that Urban would still gladly return as dredd even if meant direct to dvd/blu.

Hahaha please give me!

I really hope this sequel happens. DREDD is such a great movie. Reminds me of the original Die Hard. I love the Jim Carry clip. Made me laugh.

Hope so.

I went into Dredd not knowing much about the character (outside of the Stallone atrocity of the 90's) and was incredibly impressed with the film and the quality they acheived on a pretty limited budget. It was really fucking good.

I know it wasn't terribly financially successful at the box office, but given the changing economics of film you might be able to justify a sequel from its popularity on video, VOD, Netflix, Amazon on Demand, etc. I hope so. It was incredibly well done.

The fact there are 3 big momma's house movies, but we don't have another Dredd movie is proof that if god exists, he's laughing at us. Please to god make this film.

Dredd was a very enjoyable movie...and I hope a sequel or two is coming...especially if the supposed movies follow the plots some article I read last year put forward I think it was based on an interview with the director. That said, I saw The Raid a few weeks ago...talk about relentless - what a blast - but now it makes me look a little down on Dredd for pretty much copying the concept as the central part to their story. I know right, who doesn't copy ( I mean gets "inspired" by) in the

It was being made at the same time if not before The Raid, Plus the Dredd movie had a lot of inspiration from one of the earlier comic stories. Block wars I think it was called. So it didnt copy the Raid in any shape or form. Was just unlucky not to have released before.

Dear God, let it be true!!!!!!!!!!

Dredd was so drokking good!!!!!!! I just watched it again last night. A true throwback to the unapologetic gritty 80's action films. It made the Stallone version get down on its knees and beg for mercy before it executed it. Do it right though, I don't want to see any PG13 shyte.

If they only do a short film, I'll still be happy. If they do a full-blown sequel, my advice, don't put 3D in the title. I'm pretty sure the fact that they only showed it in 3D-equipped theaters was what really sunk it at the box-office. I know that's what kept it away from my local theaters, because why gamble on a lesser-known (in the States) property when you can make money on PG or PG-13 movies with a bigger marketing campaign and more name recognition?

Why won't the make a sequel? Because there is a larger audience for the countless worthless sequels than a sequel to Dredd.

The fact is the movie was awesome for fanboys/girls, and generally disliked by most movie watchers. The needless remakes are actually making money, whereas this movie made none. Don't like it? don't take it out on me, I'm only stating the obvious.

I will agree with you after a second viewing that there was a lot of style in the movie but what I found more distracting were the scenes that were clearly made for a 3D viewing. Considering how shitty 3D tv's are at this time, and how you cannot replicate a movie theatre experience in your home (re: 3D) without spending thousands of $, I found it distracting. The long slo-mo shots with all that glitter were made for 3D theatre viewing, not 2D bluray. I am not complaining like a fanboy does as

I'm just remarking that if they do make a sequel, make it more of a movie experience and less of a movie THEATRE experience.

The movie was solid and worthy of a sequel.

I liked it a lot. The characters were compelling. Ma-Ma was an interesting villain, and the story line of the judges trapped in a hostile tenement was unique. The movie has suspense and tension, a slow burn with style, pacing, great cinematography, sound, special FX, costumes.

@nin11 - what? I've heard from pretty much everyone that 3D movies on a 3D TV are a better experience than 3D in a theatre.

Hell Mother F-ing Yes!

Dredd was freakin great. What I love about this movie is the way they went about it. They knew this was going to be a low budget action flick (which was actually made to test new 3d camera technology). They went out and had a blast. It didn't take itself too seriously and the audience ate it up. With all the worthless sequels out there why not make to this one?

Yeah, like it's going to happen...

As much as I'd love to, there won't be a Dreddquel anytime soon.
Especially after Riddick !
Fans, crying for a sequel and then NOT going to the theatres to see it...
It's a business...

I love the movie, but you are right - fans don't go see it. I was there opening night paying extra for 3D, I then pre-ordered it on bluray etc. Half the people screaming for a sequel are people who downloaded it for free and if the sequel comes out, they will download that also - how is the studio going to make its money back? Fans need to fork over the cash!

Why was Karl Urban at the Las Vegas Star Wars convention? Was he just there as a spectator? I really enjoyed the film, and would love to see a sequel with Karl Urban, and have them go outside the city to the cursed Earth.

But a Riddick sequel has been confirmed. 2000AD are also running a petition to get a sequel off the ground. Not sure how The bourne identity did in terms of numbers at the cinema, but I am pretty sure it being one of the biggest selling DVD's of all time helped getting the sequel made.

Dredd performed solidly on the dvd and blu ray market. Which is why I think they have come round to negotiating. Had it gone on cinema viewings i think this would have been dead in the water. I personally think that the marketing for the first film let it down, with a very poor trailer in my opinion.

I'd honestly much prefer

a Dredd TV series on HBO or something. I thought the first movie was alright, and definitely a good start, but I think it's actually more suited to a badass episodic TV show than a big movie franchise. Of course it would HAVE to be on HBO, Showtime, AMC or Starz (or maybe Netflix) but I don't see why any of those networks would not want it considering the fanbase, a TV series is where something like this would flourish.

To be honest for every show that ends, I pick up 3 new ones in its place, there are several shows I watch a few episodes of, fall behind and have to catch up on when it hits Netflix. I really dont need another must see show on my plate.

I wouldn't want a tv show without Karl Urban, but he already has Almost Human on the go, which is pretty entertaining. I would love to see him back as Dredd, maybe dive more in to the mythos as well. I enjoyed the first one and with a bigger budget, a sequel could prove even better.

I'd prefer a Dredd sequel over about half the sequels currently in production (and that is a conservative estimate!). Hopefully like Riddick they find a way to make it happen.

Although it wasn't a box office success, I read that Dredd did do pretty well in home video market. So I really hope Dredd 2 will be made and Karl Urban will be Judge Dredd once again.

I really hope so. Dredd was a good movie. I didn't like it as much as many others did - wait, hold those tomatoes - but I think it was a great foundation upon which to build a film series, and the tone and style fit the character so well. That, plus Karl Urban making for a perfect Joseph Dredd.
