Alex Garland: Dredd could be first of a trilogy PLUS FREE prequel Dredd comic

September 5th, 2012 by Marc Comments

We haven’t seen Dredd yet but man, oh man are we excited! So this could be good news…

Alex Garland, writer of Dredd has been chatting online with 2000AD fans over at bleedingcool and he’s been talking sequel potential.

“If I was involved in a second movie, it would be about origins and subversion, and Chopper would feature. In fact, I think Chopper would start and end the story. Apart from him, my rough plan involves Fargo, Giant, Angel Gang, and a version of Satanus,” he also said the Cursed Earth would feature heavily.

Going on, he said: “For a trilogy, add Cal and the Dark Judges. And Anderson would be in all three.”

However, just to keep it all real, he added: “Just to be clear, this is hugely speculative and also unlikely, for any number of reasons.”

Watch here for our Dredd review this weekend.

Also out for you Dredd fans to enjoy is this free prequel comic here
The comic is written by 2000AD and Judge Dredd magazine editor Matt Smith, with artwork by 2000AD regular Henry Flint.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
