2012's Dredd is a really great film - one of the best action flicks of the last 10 years in my humble opinion.
But we can't get a sequel, because you all didn't go to see it. Was it too violent? Poorly marketed? At this point it doesn't really matter but I still wake at night from time to time wondering about that might have been...
As you may be aware, ever since the film released there have been campaigns from the sequel, with few more fervent than Dredd himself Karl Urban and original exec producer Adi Shankar. He's the very cool dude behind flicks like The Grey, Killing Them Softly and also fan films for The Punisher and Venom. Now he's got another unofficial project in Judge Dredd Superfiend.
Here's the full animated series, which deals with the rise of Judge Death, and is just about as screwed up as you might imagine.
While the animation style is a little ropey, I love the fact that there's a guy out there who is passionate about R-rated flicks and will do just about anything to keep them in the public consciousness. With a feted producer like this still behind the project, there's hope yet for Dredd fans.
