Exclusive: Official Response From Producer About Status of 'Dredd 2'

24 June 2016 7:01 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A few days ago, the internet was ablaze- well, at least the portion of the internet used by the small, rabid fan base of Dredd- with word that a certain sequel was in development. See, actor Karl Urban was speaking at Denver Comic Con, and he apparently made a few comments pertaining to Dredd 2 being in some stage of development. He said he would definitely come back for it if he felt the project had "depth and substance," according to website Science Fiction.

So reports began to spring up like wildfire, as they tend to do, because the few people that saw Dredd loved it. It didn't do so hot in wide release, but had stellar numbers once it was released for home distribution. Murmurs of a sequel have popped up before, and the latest chatter included the idea that it could come to a streaming service like Netflix- »

Learn About 'The Art of Slow Motion in Film' with a New Video Essay

8 June 2016 1:17 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"We have no control of time. Except, of course, you're a filmmaker." There's an excellent new video essay made by Julian Palmer to check out, this one all about the use of slow motion. The video examines the slow motion work in films ranging from Ingmar Bergman's Wild Strawberries (1957) to many of Scorsese's films including Mean Streets (1973) and Taxi Driver (1976) to recent films like Zack Snyder's Watchmen (2009), Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker (2008), Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive (2011) and Pete Travis' Dredd (2012), which had a crazy cool slo-mo storyline. Of course there's the scene in The Matrix, because it's so iconic. There's plenty to admire and plenty to learn in this video essay on slow motion, so check it out. Here's the video essay from Julian Palmer titled "The Art of Slow Motion" (thanks to Tfs for the tip): In addition, check out this older video »

Cannes Winner Ken Loach’s Producer Rebecca O’Brien on Their 30-Year Film Partnership

1 June 2016 12:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Friday sees the release in the U.K. of a documentary celebrating the 50-year career of British director Ken Loach, whose 80th birthday is this month and whose social-realist drama “I, Daniel Blake” recently won Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or. Variety spoke to Loach’s long-time producer Rebecca O’Brien at Sixteen Films about the director’s work, their filmmaking partnership spanning almost 30 years, and the impact that winning the Palme d’Or could have on “I, Daniel Blake.”

Loach has had 13 films in competition at Cannes, all but one of them produced by O’Brien, starting with 1990’s Jury Prize winner “Hidden Agenda” and including 2006 Palme d’Or winner “The Wind That Shakes the Barley.” When O’Brien first started to work with Loach in 1987, he was finding it almost impossible to attract backing for his feature films and documentaries as his radical left-wing perspective fell out »

Karl Urban Weighs In On Dredd Future, Actor Keen On “Worthy” Sequel

13 May 2016 7:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Alex Garland and Pete Travis’ rendition of Mega-City One’s Judge, Jury and Executioner may have struck a chord with fans four years ago, but a lowly box office performance effectively deemed Dredd to be a one-hit wonder.

That hasn’t quelled reports of a sequel battling against the odds to enter production, particularly in recent weeks with lead star Karl Urban entertaining the possibility of Dredd 2 setting up shop via online streaming (read: Amazon Prime or Netflix) in a move that would welcome the actor’s return in the famous armored suit.

Speaking to Den of Geek ahead of this year’s Star Trek Beyond, Urban reflected on Dredd‘s misfortunes, which he believes can largely be attributed to a botched marketing campaign.

Pointing to the Rotten Tomatoes review aggregate and the general fandom that the movie evoked, here’s Urban’s take on »

Karl Urban Reveals “Conversations Are Happening” Regarding Dredd TV Series

2 May 2016 2:14 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Of all the very many movies that have been spun out into TV series – think 12 Monkeys, 24: Legacy and, er, Minority Report – over the past two years or so, one project that appears ripe for the seralized treatment is Dredd.

Granted, Pete Travis’ high-octane reboot was considered a financial dud when it launched into theaters four years ago, but thanks to an impassioned fanbase and strong home video sales, there remains a flicker of hope that the Karl Urban-led action series could carve out a future of its own. Indeed, just last week the actor himself stoked the embers of excitement by pledging his support, revealing that he’d be willing to don the iconic suit and helmet as Mega-City One’s judge, jury and executioner.

There’s a new wrinkle to the tale, though, now that Urban has teased that “conversations are happening” regarding the possibility of either »

Something Is Happening With "Dredd 2"?

2 May 2016 6:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Last week actor Karl Urban got fans of 2012's "Dredd" film excited with a tweet saying he'd love to return to the Judge Dredd role for a streaming service like Netflix or Amazon as "there's a gold mine of awesome Mega City One stories" from the original comics that could still be used as source material.

Cut to a week and a half later and Urban was a guest at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo. The film and his comment came up during his panel on Saturday afternoon. Urban was asked about it and, according to one tweeter in attendance, said that "conversations are happening" regarding the film.

Hardly anything approaching a confirmation, but it's arguably the best indicator so far that a follow-up might be more than just a pipe dream. The fan base for the film has been vocal about their desire for a sequel to the »

2000 Ad Calling On Fans For Dredd TV Series On Netflix

14 January 2016 10:51 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The fan movement for more live-action Dredd is being reborn as "Bring Back Dredd".  The 2012 live-action Dredd film from director Pete Travis (Vantage Point) and written by Alex Garland (Ex Machina) was praised by critics and fans alike but earned $45 M Usd at the global box office from a budget of $41 M Usd.  This time, the call is going out for fans to grab the attention of streaming platforms like Hulu, Amazon or Netflix (along with HBO) in hopes that a sequel to the film can come in the form of a TV series.  The petition is already at 136,000 signatures.  Click the link to add your name to the list.   Instead calling on fans to sign a petition, would 2000 Ad be better off going the kickstarter route and asking for donations? A character as popular as Judge Dredd should be able to drum up a couple million dollars »
