Karl Urban on Dredd, and continuing Dredd sequel hopes
Karl Urban keeps the faith where a Dredd 2 is concerned, but urges fans to continue to show their support...
Even though it was believed that the poor box office figures for last year's Dredd movie had killed any chance whatsoever of a follow-up movie, the slim chances of Dredd 2 refuse to fully go away.
At Comic-Con over the weekend, Karl Urban was chatting about the film, and reiterated that he wants to make more Dredd films. "The home video saleas just went through the roof. I think it sold 650,000 units in the first week", he recalled.
As for the sequel, "I think the more people that campaign for it, the more people that email, Twitter and write into Lionsgate and say 'we want to see more of this', then the more likelihood that we'll get to see that". He added that "we certainly are doing everything we can to ensure that happens".
Dredd 2 is still a long, long shot. But there are clearly still people fighting for it. There's a campaign to get a Dredd sequel made running over on Facebook, here. As we hear more, we'll let you know...
