I haven't been on the forum in ages.
Just wondering where we were at with getting a Dredd sequel?

Already a thread for this prominently located in the same 'Film Discussion' sub-forum you just posted to.

TL; DR version: not gonna happen. Let it go.

Cheers

Alex Garland has done a couple of interviews where he says it is very unlikely (at least in the DNA incarnation)

If one does happen, it's unlikely it will be his version and not in the immediate future.

If a future Dredd production isn't a development of the Garland/Urban version, then it's going to be a stretch to call it a sequel, IMO, given the vigour with which we've all protested that Garland/Urban wasn't a sequel to Cannon/Stallone…

Zen and I are doing the euro millions Friday so fingers crossed it'll be green lighted Monday.

Well, reboot/whatever - it depends what the OP defines as a sequel, I think if it was the same lead, people would be more inclined to count it as a sequel, but they wouldn't necessarily be looking for the same writer or director.

There are a lot of hypotheticals, I *still* here sequel mumblings even with what Alex has said, but it's all straw-clutching and speculation IMHO.

Aren't the rights a complete fucking mess, on top of the dismal box office?

Nope. The complete audio and visual rights reside with Rebellion and are currently optioned to DNA Films. All other trademark and copyright rights for Judge Dredd reside with Rebellion.

Cool. My apologies for the lack of clarity — I was specifically talking about the movie distribution rights, which were supposedly spread across multiple companies (understandably) but that these then fed back into potential problems for DNA in getting another movie off the ground since each distributor had effectively taken a financial stake in the first movie. I may have mis-remembered this entirely and couldn't google up anything relevant, hence the question…

Ah, I see - that's not an issue of rights, but of original financing. And the only impact would be that those distributors would be once bitten, twice shy.

Apparently we'll be getting, finally, a steelbook release for the first film.
Any other good news is pretty thin on the ground...

Throw on some new features and remaster the UK print and I might double dip! Pretty awful transfer on the UK disk!
I take it that this release is the same UK disk in a fancy box.  >:(

No idea - I don't know whether steelbook releases just use the same disc as the normal one or if they ever create a new disc.
