The rights to Dredd starring Karl Urban passed away from the original production company, with the new owners being reluctant to make a sequel. And now it turns out the rights have circled back around to Rebellion, who are planning on making a sequel.
Here is what Rebellion’s CEO Jason Kingsley offered this week:
I want there to be a sequel [to 2012 movie Dredd]. We’ve got the rights back so we can do it, we’ve just got to get rid of this virus thing that’s going on at the moment, and then hopefully things can kick off in all sorts of different areas of making film and TV, it’s just, it’s all very messed up at the moment for everybody.
A lot of work has been done on all sorts of different scripts actually. So Mega-City One the TV show. Basically, we can’t go into production because of the [situation] and we’ve got scripts and everything is ready to go but the problem is, because of the [situation] and everybody’s funding changes and everybody’s shifting around.”
He even joked that it would be ‘quite fun’ to get Sylvester Stallone back… cameo?
