Fans of 2012's DREDD have been begging for a sequel, even going as far as starting petitions to help make it happen, even though the chances for it happening grow slimmer every day. But we're not alone in wanting DREDD 2 as producer Adi Shankar wants it to  happen just as much as we do. So why isn't it being put on the fast track to production? What needs to happen for DREDD 2 to become a reality? Well, it's not as easy as picking up a phone and giving it the greenlight.

Shankar recently released a video where he explains the process of getting a film financed, giving us some fascinating insight into how the moviemaking business works and clearing up some of the confusion about why there’s been no major updates on a sequel to DREDD in some time. Shankar explains…

“My hope is that this video demystifies the film financing process for public. In the brave new world of the Internet, trade secrets need to become a thing of the past.”

With all the attention Shankar's been getting lately for his "Bootleg Universe" shorts (including the badass POWER/RANGERS and his James Bond animated fan film) perhaps this attempt to explain why DREDD 2 hasn't happened will spur some more interest from people who can help Shankar make it finally happen. Check it out below.
