Peter Travis’ 2012 film Dredd is just one of those things, a film adored by fans, and even some critics, but totally ignored by mainstream audiences. So a $50 million budgeted film ended up grossing a frightening $13 million domestic and only another $22 worldwide.
With those kind of numbers, the only time the word “sequel” would get mentioned is, well, never. Yet fans and the people involved with the film keep pushing. An online petition was created to stump for another movie. The filmmakers swore there were talks with the studio. Then they made a comic book to continue the story. Still, no one is satisfied.
Enter Jon and Al Kaplan, the well-known parody duo behind such hits as Silence! The Musical. They’ve taken to YouTube with their own brand of sequel pleading. They’ve created Dredd The Musical, a funny and clever video fans will love. Check it out below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The fact there’s no Dredd sequel has nothing to do with a lack of interest on the part of the original film’s creators.

And for Urban that’s got to be pretty great — as an actor, having people to clamor to see you repeat a role has to feel good. (Especially when the previous person to play the character got a much more negative response.) Asked again about a sequel, Urban says it’s actually more likely that another film would be a Dredd prequel of sorts, explaining how the Judges came to be. Read More »

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. Star Karl Urban, writer Alex Garland, director Pete Travis and others have all expressed interest in continuing the franchise but, unfortunately, they aren’t the ones who sign the checks. The powers that be have not deemed a Dredd sequel to be financially viable so, despite all efforts, it’s still just a dream.
In a new video, though, Karl Urban gives fans yet another glimmer of hope saying “we’re working very very hard to bring you Dredd 2.” Read More »
