2000 AD Calling On Fans For DREDD TV Series On Netflix

2000 AD Calling On Fans For DREDD TV Series On Netflix

The fan movement to get Dredd a sequel may have run cold but 2000 AD is now calling on fans to get the attention of HBO, Amazon and Netflix for a TV sequel to the 2012 film starring Karl Urban and Olivia Thrilby. Would you tune in to a TV series continuation of the 2012 film?

The fan movement for more live-action Dredd is being reborn as "Bring Back Dredd".  The 2012 live-action Dredd film from director Pete Travis (Vantage Point) and written by Alex Garland (Ex Machina) was praised by critics and fans alike but earned $45 M USD at the global box office from a budget of $41 M USD.  This time, the call is going out for fans to grab the attention of streaming platforms like Hulu, Amazon or Netflix (along with HBO) in hopes that a sequel to the film can come in the form of a TV series.  The petition is already at 136,000 signatures.  Click the link to add your name to the list.

 

Instead calling on fans to sign a petition, would 2000 AD be better off going the kickstarter route and asking for donations? A character as popular as Judge Dredd should be able to drum up a couple million dollars from fans around the world. That's not enough for a feature film but perhaps it's enough for a digital series in the vein of Mortal Kombat: Legacy or Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist.
