Last week, Dredd executive producer Adi Shankar got talk about a sequel to the 2012 film going again by saying the following:
“If anyone is still wondering, there’s no update on a Dredd sequel, but I’m gonna make it happen at some point. It may not be live-action, but it’s going to happen at some point. There will be more Judge Dredd at some point.”
Good news, right?
Well, co-owner of Judge Dredd (and executive producer of the film) Jason Kingsley had the following to say about Shankar’s claims:
“While we truly do appreciate Adi’s enthusiasm for Judge Dredd, he has no involvement with the franchise and any future cinematic or small screen outings. Claims of him pushing forward a sequel to DREDD are not true and we don’t want fans to get excited only to have their hopes dashed. 2000 AD and Rebellion continue to work hard to bring the future’s greatest lawman back to screens.”
So it appears if and when a continuation of Dredd happens, Shankar won’t be involved.
Here’s hoping we can one day see this:
