British comic book company 2000 AD, the publishers that gave us Judge Dredd are now trying to get the attention of TV and streaming outlets to help make a sequel to the 2012 film Dredd. This new petition is focusing less on the theatrical side of making a sequel, but rather more pay-to-view services.
The film only cost about $40 million to make, and seems like a series could be just as cost effective and might find a larger audience than it would with a theatrical release.
It’s writer and producer Alex Garland is gaining a lot of praise for Ex Machina, and could be greatly influential to putting a series deal together. We had learned from producer Adi Shankar that the trouble with making a movie sequel in the theaters could be because of the international distribution rights being spread across to many different companies.
Here’s Adi going into more detail.
Presumably stars Karl Urban and Olivia Thrilby have mentioned a desire to reprise their roles if the opportunity knocked, the actors have been grateful and very supportive of the previous petition.
Just click the image below to sign the petition and let these outlets know you want more Dredd in your life.
We’re calling on NETFLIX, HBO, AMAZON PRIME, and movie companies to give us more DREDD!
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 - 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!
