Just yesterday we heard that over the weekend at Comic-Con, Karl Urban urged fans to push for a sequel to the 2012 action film Dredd, an entertaining reboot that has since become a bit of a cult classic, despite not making back its budget at the box office.
Lionsgate has kept quiet on the sequel front and even though the film sold very well on DVD/Blu-Ray, we still have no green light for another Dredd film. It seems that people just won’t let the idea of a Dredd sequel die though as 2000AD, the publisher of the Judge Dredd comic, have launched a campaign that includes a petition for fans to sign if they want to see Dredd 2, or whatever it may be called.
Personally, I thought Dredd was a lot of fun and re-introduced the character in an effective way. Karl Urban was excellent in the role and despite a few shortcomings, I found the film to be quite enjoyable. I’m all for a sequel and would love to see one come to fruition, let’s hope that Lionsgate takes notice of the petition.
You can get involved with 2000AD’s campaign here, only if you’re interested in seeing a Dredd sequel of course. If you are though, tell us, what ideas do you have for a follow-up? Where do you want to see the story go? Let us know in the comments below.
