Hear how likely a sequel to, the 2012 fan favourite, Dredd is from the director himself.
We at The Unheard Nerd are big fans of Adi Shankar’s 2012 imagining of Dredd that starred Karl Urban. The film is a master class in how to produce a high impact movie that’s faithful and flattering to the source material on a modest budget. Despite a growing cult following the likelihood of a sequel seemed low due to less than flattering box office figures. Though the virtually non-existent marketing campaign behind the movie surely had an impact on the number of bums on seats.
Dweebcast sat down with Shankar to find out how far speculated talks to produce a sequel have gone.
In a violent, futuristic city where the police have the authority to act as judge, jury and executioner, a cop teams with a trainee to take down a gang that deals the reality-altering drug, SLO-MO.
