We’ve been burning the candles in the hope that, through some miracle, we would get a sequel to Dredd, one of our favourite movies of last year.
But now it seems that those hopes are well and truly dashed.
Dredd producer Adi Shankar spoke to Reddit this week and the question of why the sequel isn’t happening came up: “It’s because the movie totally bombed and R-rated movies are a tough sell to begin with. If Dredd becomes a cult hit it will be awesome. Last September was a terrible month: Dredd bombed and then Looper became a massive hit a week later!”
However, all is not totally lost as he confirmed that he is working on a Dredd short film similar to the Punisher short Dirty Laundry that he made last year with Punisher movie actor Thomas Jane. It was a cracking short and we’ve put it below for your viewing pleasure. But beware, it’s very NSFW.
