The 2012 remake of Dredd wasn’t a big hit financially but critically, and among fans, it was revered. Since its release, fans have clamored for a sequel, starting Facebooks and even an online petition.

Briefly: Want to see a film sequel to Dredd, rather than a comic book sequel? You’re not alone, and some of the people who want to see a sequel film are the people who are in the position to make it. We’ve heard before that talks have taken place about a possible sequel, and star Karl Urban says “conversations are taking place between the studio, the director and writer Alex Garland.” That was at a recent Star Trek convention, where Urban was queried about a possible sequel.
We’ve heard that before, but fans will likely be somewhat heartened to know that those talks haven’t totally broken down. Hope springs eternal, even in a hellhole like Mega-City One. [WhatCulture]
