‘Dredd’ Producer On New Web Series: “It’s A Thank You To The Fans”

4 November 2014 8:03 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

In 2012, Adi Shankar served as the executive producer for Dredd, a stylish adaptation of the long-running comic series of the same name. Despite positive reviews, Dredd struggled at the box office, therefore dashing hopes for any potential sequels. Even so, Dredd has picked up a significant cult following and has sold extremely well on home video. Clearly, there are many fans of the film who are clamoring for more, and Shankar is giving them what they want with a new web series based off the Dredd franchise. Shankar, in addition to his day job as a Hollywood producer, is also an independent filmmaker who creates "bootleg" fan films based off popular franchises. In 2012, he scored a hit with "Dirty Laundry", a Punisher fan film starring Thomas Jane. A year later, he released "Truth In Journalism", which imagined Venom through a lo-fi, black-and-white lens. "The concept of the “Bootleg Universe” is »

Judge Dredd: Superfiend Review

3 November 2014 7:34 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A few days ago, we brought you the first trailer for Judge Dredd: Superfiend, a six-part animated series from producer Adi Shankar and writers/directors The Junquera Brothers.  The entirety of the series debuted about one week ago, and is the latest of Shankar's projects which include producing the 2012 film Dredd starring Karl Urban, the Punisher short Dirty Laundry and the Venom short Truth in Journalism. While I was a big fan of Dredd, I'm certainly not going to claim to be a die-hard fan of the 2000 Ad comics or the title character's own series.  I say this only to temper expectations of those of you who eat, sleep, and breathe Dredd, because you may have a different reaction to this animated take than I did.  That being said, I loved every twisted second of it.  Watching Judge Dredd: Superfiend made me want to go back to the beginning of »

Watch the Entire Judge Dredd: Superfiend Miniseries Online Now

27 October 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We’ve been teasing the animated Judge Dredd miniseries Judge Dredd: Superfiend for a few weeks now, and it’s finally online for all to see.  Written and directed by The Junquera Brothers, the miniseries contains elements of the Dark Judges story arc, and it’s done in the tradition of Saturday morning cartoons.  It was also produced by Adi Shankar, who produced the 2012 film Dredd starring Karl Urban, so there’s a bit of connective tissue to that take as well.  The miniseries is an unofficial production in the vein of Shankar’s other independent ventures, the Punisher short Dirty Laundry and the Venom short Truth in Journalism. Hit the jump to watch all six episodes of Judge Dredd: Superfiend. You can watch all six episodes of the Judge Dredd miniseries below, preceded by an introduction from Shankar.

Watch: All 6 Episodes Of Animated Miniseries 'Dredd: Superfiend'

27 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, here it is... It's not the sequel you were hoping for, or even a live action short like the unofficial Punisher fan film "Dirty Laundry" starring Thomas Jane. Instead, this is an animated mini-series regarding a Judge Dredd stand-in, it's titled "Superfiend," and it's all here for you to watch. Running six episodes long, producer Adi Shankar describes the style as '90s MTV mixed with a Saturday morning children's cartoon, and the crude and inviting aesthetic seems about right. And there's a couple more things he stresses: most importantly, this is not part of the officially sanctioned "Dredd" franchise, and thus the story revolves around "Judge Death," not Judge Dredd. So there are the caveats you need to know. So with that in mind, watch all six episodes below, kicking off with an introduction by Shankar himself. »

Adi Shankar introduces full Judge Dredd: Superfiend trailer

24 October 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Adi Shankar has released a full length trailer from his animated Judge Dredd: Superfiend project.

The Dredd producer introduces the trailer, stressing that the animation is a bootleg production inspired by the satirical 2000 Ad strip.

Superfiend focuses on classic Dredd villain Judge Death, the undead being from a reality in which he judged life a crime and eradicated the populace.

The animation will be released in a miniseries that launches online on October 27.

It will consist of six episodes: 'Judge Sydney', 'The Angel Gang', 'Judge Death', 'Rico & Vienna', 'In Death We Trust' and 'Dredd vs Death'.

There has been vocal fan demand for a sequel to 2012's Dredd, which flopped in Us cinemas but has been a surprise home release hit.

Superfiend is part of Shankar's 'Bootleg Universe', which also includes the Venom short Truth in Journalism and Punisher short Dirty Laundry.

Crazy Trailer for Judge Dredd: Superfiend Animated Miniseries

23 October 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The full trailer for producer Adi Shankar's animated miniseries Judge Dredd: Superfiend has been released, and I'm completely sold. This thing looks strange, dark, funny, a little messed up, and completely insane… I love it. The trailer comes from Collider, who also got a statement from Shankar on how this miniseries fits in with the previously made "bootleg" short films that he's produced. Those films include "Dirty Laundry," which is based on The Punisher, and "Truth in Journalism," which is based on Venom. He also talks about the reason he decided to develop this project, and why he went with this style of animation. Judge Dredd: Superfiend was inspired by the “Dark Judges” comic book story arc. Here's what the producer revealed about it:

1. The “Bootleg Universe” is about viewing things through a fresh lens.  I wanted to do something that played up the satirical tone of the Judge Dredd comics, »

Following the poster and teaser trailer released earlier this week, producer Adi Shankar has unveiled the full trailer for his mini-series Judge Dredd: Superfiend, along with four new photos.

Judge Dredd: Superfiend is the latest entry in Adi Shankar's "Bootleg Universe," which also includes short films The Punsher: Dirty Laundry, starring Thomas Jane, and last year's Venom: Truth in Journalism, starring Ryan Kwanten as Eddie Brock. This miniseries is not officially connected to 2012's Dredd 3D, but was made as a thank you for the fans who supported the film.

The producer released a statement to Collider, where he offers the two reasons he wanted to make this series, which you can take a look at below.

1. The "Bootleg Universe" is about viewing things through a fresh lens. I wanted to do something that played up the satirical tone of the Judge Dredd comics, an anti-establishment British comic about post apocalyptic America. »

'Judge Dredd: Superfiend' Trailer Teases Animated Spinoff Series

21 October 2014 4:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While we await any official word on a sequel or prequel to Dredd 3D, producer Adi Shankar has rewarded fans for their loyalty with a new spin-off mini-series entitled Judge Dredd: Superfiend, with the first teaser trailer debuting today. The full trailer will debut Thursday, October 23, with the series itself debuting Monday, October 27 on Machinima.

Judge Dredd: Superfiend is inspired by the "Dark Judges" story line from the original 2000 Ad comic books. The Dark Judges include Judge Death, Judge Fire, Judge Fear and Judge Mortis, who frequently clashed with Dredd and Cassandra Anderson in the comic book. It seems unlikely that Dredd 3D stars Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby will return to voice Dredd and Cassandra Anderson, since their names were not included in the first poster that was released yesterday.

The mini-series is also a part of Adi Shankar's Bootleg Universe, a series of short films »

Judge Dredd Animated Miniseries Teaser Trailer

21 October 2014 1:41 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Yesterday we got our first look at a poster and some images from an upcoming animated mini web-series called Judge Dredd: Superfiend. Now today we bring you the teaser trailer! The animation is crude, but I like it, and it still looks like this could be a really fun and insane series. 

The web series comes from Dredd producer Adi Shankar, and as we said in our report yesterday, it was inspired by the “Dark Judges” comic book story arc. It's intended as to be kind of a sequel to the movie Dredd, but it's also a part of Shankar’s "Bootleg Universe" series that consists of "Dirty Laundry" and "Truth in Journalism," which are two short films that riff on the Punisher and Venom comic book characters.

The full trailer will be released on October 23rd, and the actual series will be released a couple days later on the 27th. »

20 October 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We may not see a sequel to Pete Travis' Dredd anytime soon, but there's a cool looking animated miniseries that is being released that should tide us over! This seems like somthing that will be really fun to watch, and I'm looking forward to seeing some actual footage. 

The web-series comes from Dredd producer Adi Shankar, and it is inspired by the “Dark Judges” comic book story arc. The series is called Judge Dredd: Superfiend, and according to EW "it's intended as a kind of sequel to Dredd, although it’s technically a part of Shankar’s 'Bootleg Universe' series." That series is a line of unofficial short film productions that include 'Dirty Laundry' and 'Truth in Journalism,' which riffs on the Punisher and Venom characters.

You can check out some images from Superfiend, below, which gives us a look at some iconic Dredd characters from the comic series. »

In the two years since the release of Dredd, the bloodsoaked dystopic action has developed a significant cult following, buoyed by the possibility/hope that the film might spawn a sequel that dives deeper into the mythology of 2000 Ad, the British comic that spawned it. You want a sequel! We want a sequel! Karl Urban wants a sequel! But until that happens, Dredd producer Adi Shankar has produced a new animated web series inspired by the beloved "Dark Judges" story arc.

‘Judge Dredd’-Based Series ‘Dark Judges’ Headed Online

8 October 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

As with most cult films, Dredd didn’t do well at the box office in 2012. But because dedicated fans wanted more, the film’s executive producer Adi Shankar has made a miniseries based on the Dredd universe called Dark Judges, and it will be debuting online in October 2014. In an exclusive with TheWrap, Shankar revealed the 7-part miniseries will be available for free online later this month (it’s yet to be revealed exactly where the series will be hosted). For over two years, Shankar has been working on the Dredd-based project, which he initially called a “short film” in a 2013 Ama on Reddit. On September 28, he released a video for the 2nd annual Day of Dredd, thanking the aficionados of his feature-length film and saying “they turned it into a success.” Dark Judges will join two other shorts Shankar has produced related to DC Comics characters as part of his Bootleg Universe. »

Seven-part Dredd web series announced

6 October 2014 11:34 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The producer of 2012's Dredd has announced a seven-part spin-off web series, which will be available for free...

There remains a strong and devoted group of Dredd fans who are keen to see a sequel, with the recent Day Of Dredd providing another rallying cry for those who want Karl Urban back for a second time. While we wait to see if there'll be any further developments on the cinematic front, there's been an exciting announcement from one of Dredd's producers.

Film producer Adi Shankar was instrumental in getting Dredd made back in 2012, and it seems that he's just as impatient as the rest of us when it comes to getting a further adventure made. Shankar, it turns out, has been quietly working on a miniseries based on the Dark Judges.

Shankar has form with this sort of unofficial story making - he previously brought us Punisher: Laundry and Venom: Truth In Journalism. »
