Easily, Dredd has a strong following among people who enjoy real Manly Movies. It didn’t get a sequel though, be it down to the pussification of cinema or bad handling of the original release. Or both.
Hold your horses though, Karl Urban was grilled on what the fuck is happening at a Frankfurt press conference. Whatculture.com commented on his response:
Karl Urban came on last and one of the first questions asked was if there is any chance of Dredd sequel. In what should be music to fans ears, he said ‘’conversations’’ are taking place between the studio, the director and writer Alex Garland. He commented that the cinema release of Dredd was badly handled but the film had found its audience on DVD and it has been noticed by the studio.
I’d like to see more of Karl Urban. I was kinda hoping Karl Urban would be cast as the new John Connor but alas, that movie (T5) looks sorta dogs-dinner-ish now anyway.
