Karl Urban Thinks A DREDD Sequel Could Still Happen; Says It's "Not Off the Agenda"
DREDD was arguably up there with The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises as one of the best comic book movies of 2012, and in the following interview, the actor who played the iconic 2000AD character hints that with enough fan support, a sequel COULD still happen.
Being a hit with fans and critics alike just wasn't enough to make DREDD the box office smash it needed to be in order to secure a follow-up. In an interview with Collider, Star Trek Into Darkness star Karl Urban was asked to comment on the passionate fanbase and whether or not he would return for a sequel. "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. In fact, that’s what happened with Star Trek. They weren’t going to do a third season until fans did a letter writing campaign and they continued that series." DVD and Blu-ray sales for the movie were good, but not necessarily good enough to convince the studio that it would be worth their while to make another instalment of DREDD. However, stranger things have happened (look at the recent announcement that 24 is returning), so stay tuned!
