Karl Urban Says Conversations About A DREDD Series Are Happening

About a week or so ago, Karl Urban tweeted that he’d definitely be down to do a Dredd series for Amazon or Netflix. The response has been massive, which should tell you just how much of a following the cult film has built since its initial release back in 2012.

Well, apparently, at the Calgary Expo this past weekend, Karl Urban said that “conversations are happening” regarding a potential series for the character:

The petition for a Dredd series has already gotten to about 200,000 signatures and the Facebook page for the campaign sits at 103,000 likes. I’ve also noticed that when any major page or website posts about the idea of more Dredd, the response is overwhelmingly positive.

I realize the film flopped in its initial theatrical release but that can almost certainly be blamed on the marketing and the stigma of the Stallone Judge Dredd film. With the buzz growing, companies definitely have to be at least looking at the prospect of a series.

What do you think? Would you like to see more Dredd? Tell us below!

    The film bombed specifically because of the stigma of the Stallone atrocity. On top of that the marketing behind Dredd was horrendous. Whoever was behind the marketing for that film basically set it up to bomb. It didn’t bomb because it was a bad film, it was excellent! It bombed because the marketing team failed, and so did the company behind it.

    • Well said, I thought I was the only one who thought that. But the marketing was garbage, the DVD cover is garbage and doesn’t even represent the movie. I can’t understand how the film did one thing and the marketing did something completely different. That shot they commonly used looks tacky.

      The 3D aspect was also a big factor the nearest cinema to us that ran the film was 18 miles away

      I really hope a series comes to play Urbans Dredd has so much potential

  • freeSanDiego1

    Yes!!!
    Karl Urban is THE LAW

  • Phillip Bloodgod

    Much yes

    Dredd also had horrific release in the cinemas: In Finland, you could see it in one stage (the smallest one) per town, only in the biggest towns, _once_ at a midnight showing. Same as with Iron Sky in the UK, the distributor actively tried to limit its access to the big screens by refusing to sell it to theaters.

  • Don’t know about elsewhere, but the film was ONLY released in 3D in many parts of the United Kingdom. The nearest cinema showing it in 2D to me was over 100 miles away, so I wasn’t able to see it on the big screen (I can’t do 3D due to headaches). I know a few people who were in the same boat.

  • Garry Sault

    None of the Punisher films did great at the box office either yet he’s now getting a Netflix series so why not Dredd?

  • Henry_Swansons_my_name

    If it had the right calibre of talent behind it then I too would love this to happen.

  • Scott Nicholls

    Still one of the best 3D movies I’ve ever seen and true to the Dredd character. …well worth multiple views. ..
