Film fans to call for Dredd sequel

Karl Urban starred in Dredd

Dredd fans are being urged to show their support for the film in a bid to help get a sequel made.

The 2012 science fiction action movie starring Karl Urban has become a cult hit and there is an ongoing campaign for a second instalment, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog.

The campaign organisers have now declared that September 18 will be a Day Of Action for Dredd fans.

They said: "We're asking everyone who's signed the petition to come together next Wednesday and drive Dredd back up the charts.

"If everyone who's signed the petition bought an extra DVD or Blu-ray (either for themselves or as a present for a friend) or rented/bought it on iTunes and Netflix, it will send the loudest signal yet that WE WANT MORE DREDD!"

But if the mission doesn't pay off, Dredd's story is to continue in Judge Dredd Megazine.

Publisher Rebellion said Dredd: Underbelly "picks up where the critically acclaimed movie left off, with Judges Dredd and Anderson fighting the tsunami of crime on the mean streets of the dystopian Mega-City One".

Intellectual snobbery could stop you making a good friend. Just because a person doesn't make it obvious it doesn't mean they don't have the necessary knowledge and know how. On the contrary, a newcomer will have some impressive experience. By adopting a friendly attitude you could form a solid working partnership. You'll appreciate their quirky ways and they'll be impressed by your extensive knowledge. It's a match made in heaven. You'll probably have to make the first move.More
