Dredd 2 Is Definitely Not Happening

SHARE:

Alex Garland, the writer behind some of the best sci-fi in recent years, has finally put to bed any hopes we may have had about him re-teaming with Karl Urban for another movie about the toughest damn lawman in the world.

Dredd was something of a conundrum in that it recieved rave reviews and was adored by action and sci-fi fans alike back in 2012. Modestly budgeted at $50 million, it should have been a no brainer that it garnered enough support to warrant more stories from the 2001AD universe. Unfortunately, all that support didn't put bums on seats and the movie only made $35 million, therefore classing it as a failure in the eyes of the studio.

There have been campaigns to try and resurrect the movie by boosting DVD sales, but now Alex Garland has spoken out about the possibility of a sequel and unfortunately it isn't good news.


"There isn't, as far as I can tell, going to be a Dredd sequel. The basic mechanics of film financing say that if you make a film that loses a ton of money, you're not going to get a sequel. And that's basically what happened.

And I understand and appreciate the support the film has had, and the campaigns that have existed for it and it's really genuinely gratifying - I love it in all respects except one, which is when I hear about people buying copies of the DVD in order to boost sales and to change figures. And what I say to them is, 'Don't do that. Keep your money.' Because the people that are making decisions are much colder and harder than that. And the graphs they're looking at are not really going to be sufficiently dented by that."

As well as Garland speaking about the movie, producer Adi Shankar recently put together explaining film financing in the most straightforward way possible, and why it means that Dredd 2 is simply not going to happen.
