Star Wars: Episode VII Location & Casting, He-Man Director, Woodland Avengers, Timecop Reboot, Karl Urban Talks Dredd 2

10 April 2014 6:47 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Star Wars Last week, rumors began circulating that J.J. Abrams might be revisiting some of the classic environments of the original Star Wars trilogy in Star Wars: Episode VII, namely the ice planet Hoth and the desert planet Tatooine. Now, THR is adding some weight to at least half of that rumor by reporting that a "source" inside the production has revealed that Abrams is building a "re-creation of Tatooine." Abrams is a self-avowed devotee of the original movies and the entire Skywalker storyline revolves around the desert planet so this seems like one slam-dunk of a rumor.

Far less certain is the recent rumor that a virtual unknown has landed a major role in the new trilogy. Again, THR is out in front of this rumor, placing Oxford-educated actress Maisie Richardson-Sellers "in line to nab" a key role, possibly as the Jedi daughter of Obi-Wan Kenobi. So far, the »

9 April 2014 2:57 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Then I did a Cast This for the character of Max Walker originally played by the legendary Jean-Claude Van Damme. The schmoes top three choices included: Scott Adkins, Jason Statham, and Karl Urban. Any of those sound like good picks to you? Unfortunately, I don.t have any casting news for you today. Instead we have a pair of writers set to pen the script. Mark and Brian »

Karl Urban Urges Fans To Sign A Petition For A Dredd Sequel

8 April 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Some say being a real fan means deeply loving what you love and sharing it with others. And some believe that being a fan means never letting go, even in the face of seemingly certain failure. This is why fans remain gung-ho about the idea of a Dredd sequel, despite the fact that Lionsgate has very few reasons to make it. Y'all just can't let it go: you've seen Judge Dredd twice onscreen, and it's just not enough. Greedy! Now we've reached the petition phase. At the Emerald City Comic-Con (via Geeks Of Doom), Karl Urban urged fans that if they want a follow-up to 2012's grimy comic book adaptation, they best start signing petitions and liking the Dredd sequel Facebook page. Urban, who is currently in the on-the-bubble Fox series Almost Human, could use a career boost . we're years away from the next Star Trek movie. Of course, the »

Dredd 2 Could Still Happen, Says Karl Urban

4 April 2014 7:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Don’t give up, Dreddheads! Though 2012′s Dredd didn’t exactly take off at the box office (grossing only around $13 million in the U.S. and $36 million worldwide), the film was a massive hit with fans of the iconic comic-book antihero, and those same fans are still loudly clamoring for a sequel, organizing campaigns to boost sales of the home release and even pulling together a graphic novel sequel.

Now, Karl Urban, who starred as the titular Judge, is pitching in with a video aimed directly at that devoted fanbase. Though the video is brief, Urban reveals that “we’re working very very hard to bring you Dredd 2,” most certainly referring to writer Alex Garland and director Pete Travis, in addition to himself and others involved with Dredd. Check it out below:

Though the film’s box office numbers probably should have killed sequel talk immediately, the impressive praise that »

'Dredd 2': Karl Urban Says Filmmakers Working Hard to Make It Happen

4 April 2014 2:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Will Dredd 2 happen? Star of the original 2012 reboot Karl Urban says the filmmakers are working very hard to make it a reality, sending out the following video message today as a sign of hope for this action sequel.

Back in February, Karl Urban revealed that conversations about a sequel were ongoing between Lionsgate and screenwriter Alex Garland. Since that time, the official "Make a Dredd 3D sequel" petition has over 100,000 signatures, which prompted today's video.

When it was released back in 2012, Dredd 3D did not have a great showing at the box office, taking in an abysmal $13.4 million domestically and $22.2 million in international markets for a worldwide total of $35.6 million. Despite these numbers, the comic book adaptation was well received by critics and fans alike, and has amassed a strong fanbase on home video and streaming services.

‘Dredd 2′: Karl Urban Says Filmmakers Working ‘Very, Very Hard’ To Make It Happen

4 April 2014 9:48 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Judge Dredd comic book movie reboot Dredd wasn’t a hit the box office, with a worldwide gross that fell below its $50 million budget, but then its strong DVD and Blu-ray sales renewed fans’ hopes that a sequel to the film could happen.

Over the year or so since then, star Karl Urban has continue to provide update after update, but with little actual progress to report. If nothing else, though, it’s been comforting for the Judge’s fanbase to hear that Dredd 2 is still being discussed by studio folk, regardless of how much closer (or not) it is to actually being made.

As you can see in the above video, Urban has once again provide some words of encouragement for Dredd fans to keep the faith alive. He not only offers his assurance that he and select ...

Video: Karl Urban Has A Message For Dredd 2 Hopefuls

4 April 2014 7:03 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Though pretty well received by critics and the public alike, Alex Garland's Dredd failed to make a big enough impact at the box office to warrant a sequel..and most of us thought that was that. But great DVD/Blu-ray sales gave the movie a new lease of life, and suddenly it looked like a (slim) possibility. Now the official "Make a Dredd sequel" petition has over 100,000 signatures, and the actor Karl Urban has put together the following video message thanking fans for their continued support. He promises that "we’re working very very hard to bring you Dredd 2". The future America is an irradiated waste land. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington DC, lies Mega City One- a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called “Judges” who possess the combined powers of judge, »

Dredd: Did Someone Say Sequel?

3 April 2014 11:47 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Dredd. The lil’ movie that could. If you’ve been following our site then you may have noticed that certain writers have a bit of a wee crush on the 2012 box office flop. Ok, wee may be a bit of an understatement, but if you’ve managed to see the Karl Urban masterpiece then you understand our enthusiasm. Since its abysmal box office performance, Dredd has grown from a tiny cult wonder to a world wide phenomenon thanks in large part to Frank from Ohio. Frank is the founder of the Make a Dredd Sequel campaign, now officially endorsed by 2000 Ad itself. Since we last spoke to Frank the buzz had been growing but now that buzz has turned to booms as the word on everyone’s lips at the Emerald City Comic Con has been ‘sequel’. The official petition, which has reached 100,000 signatures (add yours Here) is growing daily! »

Dredd and Dredd 2, 18 months on

2 April 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Simon Brew 3 Apr 2014 - 07:18

So: the Dredd movie bombed, and Dredd 2 is a no-go, right? Maybe, but maybe not...

Just over 18 months ago, a film that remains very dear to the hearts of many readers of this site got its UK release. Launching on 7th September 2012, Dredd opened against films such as Lawless, Anna Karenina and the Adam Sandler vehicle, That's My Boy. Whilst, deservedly, the Sandler movie wouldn't even crack the top ten in the UK, it was Dredd that prevailed, off the back of encouraging reviews. The memory of the infamous (although not universally hated) 1995 Sylvester Stallone/Danny Cannon attempt to bring Judge Dredd to the screen had apparently been laid to rest.

Dredd opened to £1.05m of business, with its distributor choosing to play it pretty much exclusively in 3D. At the time, that had some initial upside, with the film being the first 18 certificate »

Dredd fans had much to rejoice about at this past weekend's Emerald City Comic Con. On Saturday Karl Urban regaled the massive main hall crowd with tales from Star Trek and Dredd (review) and it was clear from his impassioned commentary that he was not only willing but very much looking forward to the chance to return for a Dredd sequel. His little talk may have had something to do with the official Dredd Sequel petition hitting 100,000 signatures (if you haven't signed it yet, you should).

The real bit of great news though came during a panel on Friday, where 2000 [Continued ...] »

Will Bradley Cooper Play Indiana Jones In Upcoming Reboot?

26 March 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Despite the fact that we all thought Indiana Jones was at least the one famous movie franchise that wasn’t going to find itself subjected to the unnecessary reboot treatment, rumour has it that there are plans to do a “James Bond” with our favourite fictional archeologist in the near future if Harrison Ford is unable to reprise the role in time.

Yes, after much speculation as to what, exactly, is in store for the Indiana Jones saga in the next few years, it look as though Bradley Cooper (you read that right) is being considered as the actor to replace Ford in an upcoming trilogy, based on an idea that has been pitched by The Shawshank Redemption’s Frank Darabont.

You’ll remember that Darabont pitched an unsuccessful Indy sequel many years ago, so it’s weird to see him involved again. But Paramount confirmed a »
