The 2012 Dredd has a sad but not unheard-of tale. It has a passionate fan base, it was a great movie, but it didn’t bring in hefty amounts at the box office. With a gross in domestic theaters of 13.4 million dollars, the numbers alone weren’t enough to automatically get a green light on a sequel. However, fans want one, and so does Karl Urban. Dredd himself recently made an appearance at Emerald City Comicon, and he took a minute to ask for help.
He encouraged fans to sign an online petition requesting a Dredd sequel. There’s a Facebook page titled “Make a Dredd Sequel” that was created in January 2013, and it’s not a bad place to add your voice as well. Listen to what Urban has to say:
He expresses gratitude from himself and director Alex Garland and reassures fan they’re working hard on their end, too. He says the support really does help, and in a world where fans recently made a Veronica Mars movie possible, I believe his claim. At the very least, it doesn’t hurt to try.
