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]

Dredd, created by Pete Travis and Alex Garland and starring Karl Urban as the grim and violent title character, wasn’t much of a hit when it was in theaters in 2012. But it has found significant life on disc, as audiences discover that the straight-shooting story of extreme law enforcement in a terrible future stands as a solid action movie.
And now the sequel is coming to the States, but not in the form many people might want. Dredd: Underbelly is a comic book continuation of the film’s story, and it will be published in the US next month by 2000AD. Read More »

If Dredd‘s tragically weak box office performance didn’t squash all hopes of a sequel, Adi Shankar‘s recent comments should have.
