Since its release in 2012, fans of Karl Urban’s Dredd have been clamoring for a sequel. Unfortunately, there weren’t enough of those fans to rake in enough cash at the box office to make that a surefire possibility, but that hasn’t stopped them (or Urban himself) from petitioning for another action-packed adventure into Mega-City One.
Just last week, Urban supported the idea of bringing a Dredd follow-up to Netflix or Amazon, and now he’s offered fans another small glimmer of hope. Over the weekend, Urban attended the Calgary Expo, and said during a Q&A that conversations are happening.”

This is, of course, a far cry from an official announcement that such a revival is actually happening, but at least it’s a bit of fuel to keep the fire going a bit longer. »

No one expected this kind of support behind Dredd, the 2012 cult favorite starring Karl Urban that improved in every way upon what Sylvester Stallone had previously done to the comic book character. At the time of its release, there were those who were ready to criticize it for being too close premise-wise to Gareth Evans' The Raid: Redemption, and others who saw it as another comic cast-off that...

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 »

Dredd was an out-and-out flop when it hit theaters in 2012, but thanks to strong reviews and a solid home video performance it’s only gotten more popular as time has gone by. For years now fans have been calling for a sequel, and star Karl Urban has been more than happy to encourage that chatter. Still, when he […]

Back in 2012, Karl Urban starred in the critically-acclaimed movie Dredd 3D, which was beloved by critics, and the very few fans who actually went to see the movie. The reboot posted an impressive 78% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but it only made $13.4 million domestically and $35.6 million worldwide, from a $50 million budget. Despite the financial failure, there has been talk of a possible sequel for quite some time. As it turns out, the character may actually be eyeing a return on the small screen instead.
Last month, Dredd star Karl Urban hinted on his verified Twitter page that he would love to make a sequel with streaming giants such as Netflix of Amazon, teasing that there is a "gold mine of awesome Mega City 1 stories." Over the weekend, the actor appeared at the Calgary Expo, where he was asked if Dredd could continue on either Amazon or Netflix, and the actor »
Rejoice rejoice fans of the cult classic Dredd film. It seems like maybe the series shall live on in the form of a totally new series on a streaming service ala Daredevil. Karl Urban, the lead actor from the recent film and also the main figure calling fans to action to help support them and any potential future endeavors for the show, was at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo and mentioned how their are some conversations currently happening behind the scenes in regards to whether or not Dredd will live on.
And, the conversations are revolving around two streaming services, Netflix and Amazon. If I had to guess which streaming service would go for a mature and gritty show like this, I'd say Netflix is a shoe in. With shows like Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and even House Of Cards featured in the service, a Dredd show would fit in perfectly. »

Released in 2012, Dredd was an excellent comic book movie which for some reason failed to find an audience. However, like Firefly and Veronica Mars before it, fans have really got behind the Judge Dredd adaptation in the hope of making a sequel a reality. We've been teased with that possibility a number of times over the years, but nothing has ever happened, and it really does seem as if the franchise is dead. Or is it? Talking during his panel Saturday afternoon at Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo, star Karl Urban revealed that "conversations are happening" about a Dredd series at either Netflix or Amazon, a sign perhaps that all that fan support has finally begun to pay off. That's great news on the surface, but if we're being realistic, those talks may not amount to much more than one person asking those online streaming services if they want to make a Dredd series, »
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 »

Actor Karl Urban remains very keen to take on the role of Judge Dredd again, to the point that he tweeted this week asking for streaming services like Netflix and Amazon to look into a "Dredd"-related project as "There's a gold mine of Awesome Mega city 1 stories." The tweet was prompted by a fan-made Netflix listing for a possible "Dredd" film sequel.
The Reason You're Alive
Miramax has won the rights to a film adaptation of "The Silver Linings Playbook" author Matthew Quick's new novel "The Reason You're Alive" which Allison Shearmur ("Cinderella," "Rogue One") will produce. Quick will adapt the screenplay from his novel.
The story follows a Vietnam war veteran who, following brain surgery, must atone for a decades-old injustice in order to reconnect with his peace-loving art dealer son. [Source: Variety]

As followers of our Twitter feed may already be aware, there's been another push of interest in getting a new Dredd project off the ground, with Karl Urban back in the title role. I think most of us have written off the chances of a movie of Dredd 2 happening now, with even writer-producer Alex Garland seemingly resigned to it not happening. But what about Amazon or Netflix picking it up?
We sent out a Tweet that read as follows last Thursday...
Make this man Dredd again, @NetflixUK & @AmazonVideoUK, and we shall subscribe to your service for years. Promise. pic.twitter.com/FjmGZaCUZC

And since then, Karl Urban too has picked up the mantle. He sent out the following Tweet. »
The recent release of Deadpool may have proven that an R-rated comic book movie could turn a profit, but the adventure of Wade Wilson is not the only faithful R-rated comic book movie to hit theaters in recent years. Dredd achieved cult status in 2012, and die-hard fans have clamored for a follow-up film ever since. It turns out that Dredd star Karl Urban also adores the original Dredd, and he recently implored streaming services Amazon Prime and Netflix to consider producing a sequel in the near future. Check out his tweet below. Dredd 2 : I'd do it !! @netflix or @Amazon . There's a gold mine of Awesome Mega city 1 stories ! https://t.co/5KeUAizPNS — Karl Urban (@KarlUrban) April 21, 2016 Karl Urban recently released the above tweet as a plea to potentially get Dredd 2 off the ground. The original film wasn’t exactly a box office smash, but »
In the era of the internet, nothing really dies. A TV show that was swiftly cancelled, or a movie that did less than blockbuster numbers might disappear in the short term, but if it appears to have enough of a niche, cult audience that shout loud enough, it’s entirely possible that it’ll come back. It’s why we’ve seen revivals of “Firefly,” “Veronica Mars,” “Arrested Development” and similar shows, and it’s why movies as different as “Anchorman” and “John Wick” got sequels.

Karl Urban kept those persistent Dredd 2 rumors burning bright over the weekend, with the actor revealing his interest in launching a sequel via Netflix or Amazon.
Responding to one fan’s Tweet, Urban conceded that “there’s a gold mine of Awesome Mega City 1 stories” still to be told. The mock up image in question imagined a follow-up to 2012’s Dredd taking the form of a Netflix series, an idea that Karl Urban is firmly behind.

It’s the one sequel that wears its never-say-die attitude firmly on its sleeve – somewhere slightly above the badge that brandishes Karl Urban’s faceless law enforcer as judge, jury and executioner – even leading to a grassroots petition to spin out a TV series rooted in the Dredd universe. »

While we’re all still raving about Deadpool and the fact it has changed the landscape when it comes R-rated comic book movies, we’re all forgetting the criminally under-rated adaption that could have done it four years earlier. Praised by fans and critics alike, 2012’s Dredd went on to perform poorly at the worldwide box office, putting the nail in the coffin of any future adventures for Karl Urban’s gruff futuristic law enforcer. The fan outcry for a sequel has been mind blowing, with petitions and the ‘Day of Dredd’, where fans were encouraged to buy or stream a coy of the movie to persuade studio heads at the hunger for a follow-up, trying to get the ball rolling. Unfortunately, this all added up to nothing, with screen writer Alex Garland telling the bitter truth that not better how many Blu-Ray’s or DVD’s were bought, no »

The hope for a “Dredd” series is still alive and thanks to Karl Urban, it’s making news once again. After a fan created a mock of what the series would look like on Netflix, the actor retweeted the image and responded with a message fans are freaking out about. “Dredd 2: I'd do it!! Netflix or Amazon," he tweeted. "There's a gold mine of Awesome Mega City 1 stories!” Urban starred as the Mega-City One enforcer in the 2012 film “Dredd.” Despite grand reviews by critics and audiences, it was poorly received at the box office. Many fans hoped that the action-packed movie would get a sequel but over a year ago screenwriter Alex Garland confirmed that there wouldn’t be one.

While 2012’s Dredd movie firmly established itself as a favourite among fans of the Mega-City One lawman (and with good reason, as it was excellent), the poor box office performance of the film meant that plans for a sequel were left in tatters.
Over the past couple of years, the Bring Back Dredd campaign has been lobbying for a follow-up, before shifting their focus earlier this year to petition streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon to get behind a TV show based upon the iconic 2000 Ad character. And, should that happen, it looks like Karl Urban is on board.
Retweeting a mockup for Dredd 2 on Netflix, Urban posted:

Some young actors go for the brass ring immediately after getting a hit. Others just care about the material and doing good work. It may not always please their agent, but it creates a staying-true-to-your-sensibilities career path that’s filled with a palpable authenticity. Outside of “Dredd,” talented 29-year-old Olivia Thirlby has hardly ever starred in big-budget studio films. She burst onto the screen with magnetic charisma in David Gordon Green’s “Snow Angels,” and before that, she had a small but memorable role in Paul Greengrass’ “United 93.” She also turned heads with an unforgettable role in Jason Reitman’s “Juno,” as the perfect object of affection in Sundance hit “The Wackness,” as one half of a crumbling relationship in "Red Knot," and with quiet presence and sexual power in Ry Russo-Young’s deeply underrated “Nobody Walks.” Not all of these films are particularly big hits, but they are »

Meet the films sequels that might not be dead, but are certainly stuck in some kind of limbo...
Every now and then, a sequel that appears to have been in the cooker for a while – Zoolander 2, Dumb And Dumber To, Anchorman 2 – finally escapes into the wild. But the journey to the screen can be a very lengthy one, and this little lot are still trying to find their way to your local multiplex…
Disney gambled hard on bringing Dick Tracy to the screen in the summer of 1990, backing the vision of director and star Warren Beatty, and hoping to ape the success that Warner Bros had enjoyed the summer before with Batman. Yet whilst Dick Tracy hit, it didn’t hit too hard. The studio adjusted its-then blockbuster strategy accordingly, and it wouldn’t really be until it got to the likes of »
