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.
