Dredd was loved by critics and fans alike, but it sadly failed to find a wide enough audience to be deemed a box office hit. However, strong DVD and Blu-ray sales and the enthusiasm from Karl Urban to reprise the role has kept sequel talk alive, and now 2000AD have launched an OFFICIAL petition.
Tharg and the droids at 2000AD have made a request.
Following DREDD's disappointing box-office after its short theatrical run last September, all went quiet until January of this year when the film's spike in retail sales showed signs of life. Questions began to be asked about a possible sequel.
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.
Unfortunately a sequel to the awesome DREDD is unlikely but the man who played 'ol stoney face, Star Trek Into Darkness' Karl Urban, seems up for reprising the role if he got the chance. He also talks about a potential part in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars Episode VII.

We may not be seeing a 'true' sequel to Dredd anytime soon but perhaps you'll view this ambitious fan film centered around Judge Minty as a symbolic continuation of the war on crime in Mega-City One.
Adi Shankar, producer of Dredd 3D and the short film Punisher: #DirtyLaundry, conducted an Ask Me Anything on Reddit on 20 March 2013. He discussed Dredd and confirmed that while there would likely be no sequel, he was working on a Dredd short film in the same spirit as Punisher: #DirtyLaundry.
The real reason why Dredd 3D failed.
Dredd's costumes and Props are being auctioned off on E-bay.
Good news Judge Dredd fans! Much has been made over the lack of box office success for Peter Travis' Dredd and the fact that the film needs to really do well on blu-ray and dvd in order to have any chance for a sequel.
Great deals on Dredd, Looper, Skyfall and Firefly. Peter Travis' Dredd was criminally underrated and needs home video support in order to have any hopes of having a sequel greenlit.
Dredd 3D director Pete Travis comments on the possibility of a sequel, saying that even if it happens, he probably won't helm it. He then shares his thoughts on comic book movies and reveals that he has been sent a script for another CBM that he "quite likes".
Dredd was released on Blu-ray/3D/DVD today and we want to hear your thoughts on the second film adaptation of the 2000AD comic book! It's your turn to be the Judge, tell us what you think.
Our friends at Lionsgate have supplied CBM with some Dredd swag to give-away! There are no requirements or restrictions, so enter today!
I'll tell you what, Dredd had better sell like hotcakes when the film is released on Blu-ray and DVD January 8, or that will most likely be the last time I see a live-action version of the character in my lifetime.
