It was good.

A little low key and claustrophobic, but beggars can't be choosers. As it ended it began to feel like the pilot for a series, or at least another film.

Maybe a film set a few years later, with a fully fledged Psi-Judge Anderson, and another part of the City where things look more advanced (i.e. further into the future as per the comics). And get to see more of the Cursed Earth up close.

I like the fact that there was some Dredd lore, such as the Lawgiver palm security feature and selective ammunition.

Well, two out of three:

There needs to be some robots. Walter the Wobot for the win:





Must watch it again because I missed some of these easter eggs:

You did the maths!

Dredd just currently seems a more likely proposition than the guy leaning on the bar above:

Indeed. With fandom like that, you only need a city with a population of roughly 25 million to fill a cinema. For one showing.

I'm sure the people of Shanghai are going to feel special.

It's sad to see that these days, even bribery doesn't get you what it used to.

Dredd made a meager ~$38-million at the global box office on a budget of $50-million slotting it nicely into "box office failure". In fact, it was such a failure that the production company had to sell off all the props to recoup some of their costs.

And them home video came around. And Netflix. And Dredd finally found the audience it deserved. It did phenomenally well on both platforms, and fans have been clamoring for a sequel ever since then. Now the flick's executive producer is giving you that sequel. Sort of. It just won't be a movie. Instead, the project will appear on-line.

Since Shankar's unofficial “Dredd” project was done off-the-grid, it's technically a part of his popular Bootleg Universe, which includes the short “Punisher: Dirty Laundry” starring Thomas Jane and Ron Perlman, as well as “Venom: Truth in Journalism,” which starred Ryan Kwanten as Spider-Man villain Eddie Brock.
.

It's going to be a 7 part mini-series featuring the Dark Judges, but no word on whether or not Karl Urban or Olivia Thirlby will reprise their roles as Judges Dredd and Anderson respectively.

The big toy companies do their best avoiding the failures.

And then the bootleggers come around.

The license holders tried to stop them. Some UK retailers removed them from pre-order, others merely took them off display and sold them 'under the counter'.

The naysayers said it wouldn't happen...

No Dredd 2, but there is this new six-part bootleg cartoon series from executive producer on Dredd (2012), Adi Shankar:

There was also last year's Judge Minty, a multi-award winning fan film created with the permission of 2000AD and Rebellion:

Well, this eventually might be truer than you know.

Following the wildly dedicated fan-led campaign for a sequel to the 2012 flick, series publisher Rebellion and 2000 A.D. are taking their Bring Back Dredd campaign directly(?!) to Netflix, Amazon, & HBO.

Quote:
"With the success of series such as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and The Man in the High Castle, the clamour of the growing fanbase for more from the incredible world of the 2012 Dredd movie cannot be ignored," the campaign text reads. "We call on TV and movie producers to step up to the plate and give us more, either through a pay-to-view TV series or a new movie!

Quote:
"We've decided to take the fight to the TV producers who have done such good jobs with other comic book properties such as Daredevil and Jessica Jones," said Palmer. "We call on all fans of Dredd to join 136,000 other people in calling for people with the vision and the finance to make it happen to step up and give us what we want. In the next few days we'll be organising activities so that people can lobby companies such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and HBO, and show their support as we all say 'Bring Back Dredd!'"

I'm down. Bring back Karl Urban as Dredd and I'm definitely in. Keep the grounded aspect of the show and I'm doubly so. If Netflix can find $165-million for The Queen, they can find some loose change for another Dredd revival.

I enjoyed the Dredd movie. A TV series would be something I'd be very interested in too. I hope something can be worked out for this character.

I loved it. I keep hoping we get a sequel, but it doesn't seem likely.

Netflix would a good safe heaven for a character like Dredd, and looking at Daredevil, a tv series would be a terrific way to continue this incarnation with Karl Urban.

It's early days, hepcats, but it was announced that a sequel (maybe) was officially in development.



The effort is being spearheaded by Dredd's publisher, Rebellion, and IM Global who have worked on Hacksaw Ridge and with Scorsese on Silence. It's expected to be big budget and will allegedly film in the UK. I imagine that production will be located on a soundstage or studio then since Mega City One is essentially the entire Eastern Seaboard of the United States.

The original announcement doesn't cover it, but the production team has indeed held talks with Karl Urban to reprise the role. Keep your fingers crossed; he's a busy man these days. Olivia Thirlby should be an easier get.
