Karl Urban Says Sequel to Alex Garland's 'Dredd' Not 'Off the Agenda'
Earlier this year, there were rumblings about a sequel to Alex Garland's adaptation of Dredd being very unlikely after a less than stellar box office performance left the lower budget comic book film out in the wind. However, the film seems to have found a decent sized audience on the home video market, and there are plenty who have come to embrace and enjoy the film. In fact, a big enough audience has found this film that star Karl Urban (Star Trek Into Darkness) says that a sequel is "not off the agenda." Right now the power seems to lie with the fans, and they have to let the higher powers know they want a sequel. Read on!
Urban told Collider, "Interestingly enough, I did have breakfast with Alex Garland this morning. It’s not off the agenda. Clearly everyone has woken up to the fact that an audience has found this movie and loves it. It’s entirely possible, and if people want to see another installment then they should be vocal about that, because, it can happen. The power of fandom can resurrect projects." The power of fans can be seen with the recent Kickstarter success of the gestating film adaptation of the TV series "Veronica Mars," which was greenlit after fans showed their support through the project funding organization. That may not be what happens with Dredd, but studios will listen to a big fanbase. Do you want a Dredd sequel?
