Want a Dredd sequel? Then sign the petition from 2000AD!

Jul. 25, 2013by: Paul Shirey

Ah, DREDD, one of the most kick ass comic book films made to date and yet nobody saw it...until blu-ray, that is. Sales have soared for the film on video and helped to cement it as a cult classic in a very short time, leaving everyone wondering if we'll ever get to see the continued adventures of Judge Dredd (as played by Karl Urban, of course) in Mega City One. It's been a frustrating experience for fans, watching numerous sequels to numerous crappy franchises fly by, while the only film that actually deserves one sits in limbo. Enter 2000AD, the publisher of the Judge Dredd comic, who have created a nifty and simple petition that will hopefully get the wheels spinning on a sequel.

Petitions are tricky and there's no guarantee they'll work, but there's no guarantee they won't either. If nothing else, the petition can provide the studio with some numbers to crunch, which hopefully will be enough for them to get the gang back together and deliver what is absolutely the most-deserved sequel to date. When you think about all the sequels for all the franchises circulating out there, the vast majority are completely unnecessary. That's no secret. So, for once, let's do our part as fans and help get a sequel we actually want to see get made.

Sign the petition HERE!

Also, if you haven't yet seen DREDD or if you have and don't yet own it, click here to get it!

Wow

My jaw dropped several times reading this. What qualifications did Paul Shirey have to get a job writing for this website? Dredd was definitely a surprise, a guilty pleasure, and better than it should've been, but..."one of the most kick-ass comic book movies to date," a "cult classic," or a the movie that "most-deserv[es a] sequel to date" it is not. What is he talking about? It's got some cool stuff in it, I'm not against a sequel, and it's cool when fans get together to try to get their

It's got some cool stuff in it, I'm not against a sequel, and it's cool when fans get together to try to get their favorite movies and shows back on air - this film is better than a lot of BS that gets green-lit like Adam Sandlers stuff - but this is not a great film. I think everyone figured it was going to be terrible and were surprised when it was ok. I wish you all well, but go watch this film again, during the day, sober.

I added myself to the mailing list. If a petition surfaces, you can bet I'll sign it. Please let it come to fruition. While we're at it, can we please get a petition or a Kickstarter campaign for another Punisher film starring Thomas Jane (and have it be in the tone of Dirty Laundry)?

Karl Urban was f-ing awesome as Dredd (did he master that snarl or did he master that snarl???). Whereas I disliked Amazing Spider-Man more the more I thought about it... with Dredd...I've liked it more the more I thought about it. Didn't know who Olivia Thirlby was before Dredd...but she was great too. Very good movie.

PLEASE GOD!

I hope this petition shows the studio execs that there really is a growing fanbase out there for DREDD. I introduced my best friend to the character/property by taking him to see it opening weekend and got him hooked big time. This character deserves more screen treatment. I look at it as somewhat of a renaissance of action movies. Look back at TERMINATOR, RAMBO, and DIE HARD. Those films kicked ass and were exciting to watch on the screen. The same can be said for DREDD as it fits that calibur

Alright! I hope Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby would be back. If that dreaded Grown Ups 2 can have a sequel, why can't Dredd have a sequel?

You know how everyone says "oh, this movie doesn't need a sequel"? Dredd was one movie that absolutely does. I didn't quite enjoy the film as much as many did (I guess part of it was the Die Hard formula) but it was a very good film and they did put that plot device to good use. It laid the groundwork and established an ideal tone and atmosphere for the world and character, one that I do want to see being built upon.
