Dredd sequel talks are happening – but could it be a prequel?

September 8th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Of all the movies we fans want, nay need, to see  a sequel to it’s Dredd. Oh my, but we almost universally loved this movie…

And it looks like, once again, things ARE moving in the right direction – even if it’s not the direction we may have thought.

Talking to the guys over at Shallow Graves, Dredd himself, Karl Urban, has been talking about the followup movie and the possibility of seeing the Dark Judges in the Dredd movie universe, Urban said: “Why yes, there is a definite possibility. But, it is more likely that we will do the origins story with Dredd trekking through the cursed earth to find the first Chief Judge Fargo.”

Fans from the comics will know that Fargo is the Judge that Dredd was originally cloned from.

It’s an interesting direction for the followup to pursue but we must say, we’re delighted to just hear that it’s certainly in the talk stages… will it be a prequel or will it just be weaved into the tapestry of a straight-out sequel? Hopefully some day we’ll be able to answer this question after watching the movie.

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….
