Will Dredd 2 Ever Happen? All You Need To Know
So, fans this time you will get disappointed with this news but there is no Dredd 2 going to happen. First part of this movie was released in the year 2012 and since then people were checking for Dredd 2 release date. But it has been confirmed by the write of the movie Alex Garland that they are not working on any prequel of the movie.
Also we have a statement from Karl Urban (played the role of Judge Dredd), he says, “Listen, I would love to make it, I’m on the record saying that a bunch of times. I don’t know if that’s gonna happen. I think that the guys that own the rights to Dredd, Rebellion, I think they’re developing something called ‘Mega-City One’ and it would just be great to see more Dredd, whether it’s with me or not, it doesn’t matter. I’m a fan of Dredd and there’s so many great stories there. I’d love to see them. And I have no doubt that, someday, someone will make it. It’s just a matter of time.”
A Short Clip From Dredd To Recall Your Memories
Karl Urban is really passionate abut his character of Judge Dredd, and in his statement he even stated that he would be quite happy with someone else taking on the role in order to bring the character back to the big or small screen. At this time the future of the Judge Dredd property is somewhat uncertain, with no official plans for a sequel to Dredd having been made.
Fans have been signing petition to extend their support to Karl Urban, so that makers could start with their project on Dredd 2 starring Karl Urban, but after this also there is no update from their side whether they will work on the project or not. So, let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope that justice could be done to Judge Dredd’s Character by bringing Karl Urban again in Dredd 2.
Apart from Karl Urban in the lead role, other characters in the movie were Olivia Thirlby, Wood Harris, Lena Headey.
