Director of Dredd Says Sequel a Possiblity

Pete Travis, director of the greatest movie you didn't see this year, Dredd, talks of the possibility that a sequel still might be made.



Source: EXCLUSIVE: Pete Travis Not Directing Dredd 2; the Director Remains Hopeful for a Sequel

With the movie just been released this past week in the US, the director of Dredd, Pete Travis talked to Movie Web on the hope of a sequel and the overall possiblity he probably won't be directing it:

"I don't think so. I really hope there is a second one. I just feel very lucky to have been involved in the first one. It has been a great experience for me. I read Alex Garland's script two years ago, and I feel in love with it then. I have enjoyed the whole process of working on that with him, and bringing it to the screen. It was extraordinary. I hope they get the chance to make another one. I think Dredd is an extraordinary character. I think Karl Urban captured him so perfectly. I think there is a real beautiful future there."

 

On what the sequel would be about, Travis said this:

"I think Alex Garland has a trilogy in his mind. I think there is a whole exciting journey in front of Dredd if Alex and Karl Urban get to take him on that journey. The future is really exciting for him. Especially in terms of going with some of the other characters from the comic book. Finding out more about where Dredd comes from. I also think its exciting, the possibilities. The first film does go all out as a visual feast. Whoever gets a chance to do the others willl take that, and make it even more exciting. I can't wait to see it.

 

Travis also teased of a mystery project he was working on. Failure to acquire Dredd on DVD or Blu Ray carries a fifty day stay in the Iso-Cubes.

At least it looked better than the Sylvester Stallone incarnation that is best forgotten.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable b-movie that had no pretensions and delivered an entertaining hour and a half.

In other words much better than that Sylvester Stallone shitfest as I said.

I wish I'd seen this in the theater. Angela and I just watched it the other night and it was awesome.

I loved that he never took the helmet off.

I bought this movie last week on blu-ray and haven't got around to watching it yet. I don't know how the hell this is going to get a sequel. The numbers just don't add up.

Budget - $50 million
Grosses:
Domestic - $13.4 million
Foreign - $19.3 million
Worldwide - $32.7 million

So a movie that lost $17.3 million is going to get a sequel? I don't see that happening.

where the heck are you getting those numbers? There's no way those are the final numbers.

And it will easily make that back via word of mouth for digital/blue ray and dvd sales. Has cult movie wrote all over it.

I'm entirely sure it could make it's budget back eventually. I thought it was a little strange to talk about the possibility of a sequel with worldwide numbers like that, before they even saw any sales figures on the DVD/Blu-ray release. If Amazon is any indication of Dredd's sales, it's currently ranked #19 in movies & TV after not even being out for a week.

I bought the movie because I thought the trailer looked great and saw how people on this forum really liked it. I hope it turns out to be as good as you guys say.
