Judge Minty (2013)
Cursed Edge - from director Oliver Hollingdale - has been posted on YouTube.
It is the first of a six-part original story set in the world of Pete Travis and Alex Garland's 2012 Karl Urban-starring movie.
A previous fan film was released starring 2000 Ad supporting character Judge Minty.
Fans have been vocal in demands for a sequel to the newest Judge Dredd film.
The chances of a follow-up were considered slim following the auctioning of props from the original, but strong DVD sales and support from the cast and crew have made the possibility of Dredd 2 seem more likely in recent months.
While fans continue to clamour for a Dredd sequel, Seb takes a look at the best unofficial 2000 Ad adaptation yet: Judge Minty...
As we reported recently, there's a growing groundswell of support for a campaign to try and convince studio chiefs to get work moving on a sequel to Alex Garland and Pete Travis' excellent Dredd film, which stands as easily one of the most faithful and engaging comic book adaptations of recent years. The publishers of 2000 Ad themselves have thrown their weight behind the campaign, and whether or not it's successful, its very existence does show the appetite that's out there for such a strong and well-grounded take on the comic's long-running and beloved stable of characters.

Judge Minty Fan-Film
Judge Minty is a 27 minute short film based on a minor character from the 2000Ad strip, Judge Dredd. Maybe the Judge Dredd universe deserves some more time ...

The film will be based on Judge Minty, a character created by John Wagner and Mick McMahon. An aging Judge who is forced to ‘retire’ from the streets, mainly it seems because he has become too compassionate. He chooses to take ‘The Long Walk’ into the Cursed Earth, there “to take law to the lawless”. The film will be based around his first experiences in the radioactive wastes.
Now I'm wondering if this is going to take a gay turn considering his name is Minty.. or maybe he becomes a stripper.
