2000AD, the publisher of the Judge Dredd comics, have debuted this new video message from Karl Urban giving those Earthlets who have supported the ‘Dredd’ sequel campaign on Facebook and who have signed the petition some love. At this moment in time, the petition has over 100,000 signatures and the official ”Make a DREDD Sequel” Facebook page has over 83,000 likes. Though it’s unknown how many signatures, if any, will be enough to get a new ‘Dredd’ flick into production, it’s got to be worth a shot.
While ‘Dredd’ was received excellently from critics and fans alike, it failed to make a splash at the box office. That said, the film was one of the highest-selling home video releases of 2013 and has gone on to become a cult hit. Fingers crossed a ‘Dredd 2′ comes to fruition!
