Will Dredd 3D become the launch of a Judge Dredd franchise of cult classic? Karl Urban reveals how the film can stand alone to 411Mania.
“I just want to say if this film is a one-off cult classic, then I’m cool with that because I’m really proud of the film,” Urban tells 411. “And we showed it the other night and the audience loved it. And to me that’s like, I’m happy. I’m good. If we don’t end making more of these, than I’m cool with that because it’s all good on my end. If we’re fortunate enough if it blows up at the box office, then absolutely I would definitely love to come back and reprise the role and make more of these. I just think there’s so much fertile ground to explore within the character and within the world. And I would love to see the continuing story and the evolution of these characters and the relationship between Anderson and Dredd. And it would be interesting to find out more about the world, more about Dredd. It would be really cool to see the Dark Judges. There’s so much. And it would be great to — we’ve seen one aspect, one sector of Mega-City One. It would be great to see other aspects.”
Writer Alex Garland (26 Days Later, The Beach, Sunshine) has said he has a trilogy planned out if the first film is a success.
