‘Dredd’ Producer Teaches You the Painful Truth About Filmmaking

Published

Why is there no Dredd sequel?

Producer Adi Shankar is sick of being misquoted, and wants Dredd fans to understand how difficult it is to get a movie financed.

As he explains, there’s a complicated answer. It was so complicated that he decided to uploaded a 6-minute long video to break it down. It’s a must-see for aspiring filmmakers, who can learn the simple (ha!) formula to get a movie financed. The hard part is finding the “D-I-S” (watch the video).

For those too damn lazy to learn something today, in short, to get Dredd 2 made, they need to lower budget, get a big filmmaker and bigger star.

This video is so shockingly truthful that it’s sort of a gut-punch for us film fanatics. What we learn is that filmmaking is a business and only a business, and that creative means nothing as long as a project has a hot cast and director. It’s brutal. Long live the indie film.

Co-founded Bloody Disgusting in 2001. Producer on Southbound, the V/H/S trilogy, SiREN, Under the Bed, and A Horrible Way to Die. Chicago-based. Horror, pizza and basketball connoisseur. Taco Bell daily.
