There’s A Petition For More ‘Dredd’ Films…

Last week Dredd 3D star Karl Urban talked about a potential sequel to the comic book adaptation at the San Diego Comic-Con. It created quite a stir, so much so that a petition was created, and people have been bugging me all weekend to support it here on Bloody Disgusting.

Personally, I want to see another Dredd, I just don’t think petitions ever work; although, I suppose if the studio or producers involved are on the brink of pulling the trigger, it could push them over the edge.

I want another Dredd, you want another Dredd, so I guess it doesn’t hurt to sign the petition of (allegedly) 50,000+ names (there are nearly 50k “likes” on Facebook).

Speaking on the first film’s home video success, Urban explained, “Clearly it has found an audience. The home video sales for Dredd 3D just went through the roof. I think it sold 650,000 units in the first week.

Budgeted at nearly $50M, the comic adaptation only made $36M worldwide, which is a pretty hefty loss when you consider the marketing costs need to be recouped, as well. I don’t see anymore Dredd films in the foreseeable future.
