JUDGE DREDD Sequel Unlikely

JUDGE DREDD Sequel Unlikely

Last week rumours of a Dredd sequel began floating around after Karl Urban revealed talks were on. Unfortunately, Collider's Steve Weintraub has revealed that the chances of a sequel are unlikely. Hit the jump to find out why!

Rumours have been flying about in the past week that a sequel to 2012's Judge Dredd was in the works, after Karl Urban revealed that talks with Lionsgate were in progress. Unfortunately, Collider's Steve Weintraub revealed, via AMCMovieTalk, that the sequel isn't likely. Here's what he had to say:

From what I've heard, Dredd was sold with different film companies around the world. I sent some emails around to find out what's going on with the film. Lionsgate only have the rights to a domestic release. If a sequel is going to be made all the companies that paid for it would need to be cool. It'd be pretty tough to pull of, I'm 99% sure it isn't being made

What do you think? Does a Dredd sequel have any chance of seeing daylight? Sign off your thoughts below!

Couldn't a sequel be produced by different studios?

Child's Play sequels were produced and released by a different studio than the one that made the first one.

Thanks for crushing my dreams :(

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! They should make this a tv series. It would have a smaller budget and I believe it would be more popular.

I literally just got done watching that show and steve never said it was confirmed that it isn't happening. He just said that all the other foreign markets would have to agree to make the movie, making it difficult to do it. But he NEVER said it's not gonna happen. He just thinks its unlikely
manoftomorrow13 - 2/25/2014, 11:47 AM
He's just trying to say that given the current issues with the rights to the movies distribution its going to make a sequel hard to make and he feels it's most likely not gonna happen. That doesn't mean it's not going to happen. So everyone can still have hope!

@manoftomorrow13- 99%, that's like a bottle of GermX killing 99% of all germs....that's pretty much all of the germs.

"It'd be pretty tough to pull of, I'm 99% sure it isn't being made"

Seem's to me that it would take a LONGGGGGGGGG time. That 1% sounds like the writer & director going

"Hey I have an idea for Dredd 2"
"Yea me too.."
"I don't have kids."
MexicanSexyman - 2/25/2014, 11:51 AM
It won't happen.
BlackIceJoe - 2/25/2014, 11:51 AM
There needs to be a way to kickstart movies like the site smgo.tv is for tv shows but instead for movies.
cosmicman - 2/25/2014, 11:56 AM
what a dick
jlabatman - 2/25/2014, 11:56 AM
That sucks!
smgmayhem - 2/25/2014, 11:59 AM
@Sotojuiceman, you do know that the 1% is all it takes for a person to become infected right ;)
smgmayhem - 2/25/2014, 12:00 PM
They can't say 100% otherwise lawsuits would spring up like the 4th of July!
manoftomorrow13 - 2/25/2014, 12:02 PM
@SotoJuiceMan I'm just trying to say that since this guy is not studio level or anything, we should wait for someone involved in the film such as Karl Urban or the producer or something before we all jump to conclusions saying that the movie is gonna get made or it isn't gonna get made. Because a lot of people publish someone's thought or feelings as news and it becomes this big deal. So I'm just trying to prevent people from making assumptions based on this. So until someone involved makes an official statement, everything should be taken with a grain of salt

AMC movie talk it's a really good show, just listen that right now.
MrSotoMan - 2/25/2014, 12:05 PM
@smgmayhem- This is the movie business, not the zombie invasion.

@manoftomorrow13- I guess then, let's see.
smgmayhem - 2/25/2014, 12:11 PM
@Soto EVERY DAY IS THE ZOMBIE INVASION! lol, but your right politics is politics.
JoeMomma29 - 2/25/2014, 12:12 PM
I hope this is not true.

Dag, that would be a shame!

Dredd was a great movie, I really liked the atmosphere they were going for with the world of Dredd. Seriously underrated movie within the last years.
jlabatman - 2/25/2014, 12:20 PM
Shut your whorish mouth old man!

You are right Gus

This completely americanhockeyteam sucks

charlie2094 - 2/25/2014, 1:28 PM
Damn, hopefully he's not right...Dredd was brilliant, be brilliant to see a sequel...one of the few such films that truly deserves a sequel

Hopefully it happens at some stage
MrSotoMan - 2/25/2014, 1:29 PM
Um this website proves otherwise

Given the numbers, it took the DVD sales to even make an above budget, with the logic of popularity, that would mean Green Lantern has a sure fire chance at making a sequel as well.

Point is 50 million, + whatever marketing costs (or lack of) is pretty much not enough. This movie at least needed to have a nice big opening, or hell at least double it's budget or pass it's budget by a certain quota, therefore it didn't.

Meaning this guy's comment sounds pretty legit, asking the other film companies to go on board for a sequel will also leave to other questions as well that they would be asking, like WHY?

Relying on DVD sales is not always a good thing, since Superman Returns was also relying on DVD sales when it finished it's theater run enough to warrant a sequel, and guess what, it didn't happen.

DAMMIT!....DREDD deserves a sequel.
BritishMonkey - 2/25/2014, 2:55 PM
Sounds a little pesimistic. There will be a sequel.
SaxoWolf - 2/25/2014, 3:00 PM
I hope there's a sequel soon.
LEEE777 - 2/25/2014, 3:07 PM
Well that's shit

Damn, Dredd was even better than Iron Man 3, Man of Steel etc.


That Almost Human TV show should be a DREDD show, maybe DREDD will come to TV on AMC or something, that would be awesome!

ROGUE TROOPER and ABC WARRIORS needs movies too!
REPOMAN - 2/25/2014, 4:44 PM

Kick-Ass had it's rights traded/bought & sold so DREDD is no more likely or unlikely. It all depends on whether Lionsgate want to buy those rights.

StrangerX - 2/25/2014, 6:21 PM
Thats too bad. I wanted to see what the sequel to this would look like. It def had the edge needed for a dredd film.
russburlingame - 2/25/2014, 8:11 PM
I don't think that's the kind of thing that stops if it the plan is to move forward. People who paid for the rights would rather get bought out or take a risk-free percentage of gross than just sit on it for the sake of sitting on it, certainly.

NOW, how serious anyone is about ACTUALLY moving forward with it is the real question.
ThaJackaL - 2/25/2014, 8:46 PM
Dredd should be on Cable tv like on A&E, Showtime or HBO or something like those, and let it be as hardcore as possible. I'd rather see a tv show than another movie. They failed twice with the movies, and it's because Dredd is a hard character to translate into a 2 hour movie.

Dredd works best on TV...
jimoakley666 - 2/26/2014, 12:59 AM
If there's money to be made, arse will be gotten into gear.
Jollem - 2/26/2014, 1:06 AM
that kind of attitude is not acceptable
