Karl Urban Offers to Return for Potential "Dredd" Sequel

Fan aren't the only ones who'd like to see 2012's "Dredd" get a sequel.

Star Karl Urban has Tweeted his support for "Dredd 2" after a fan mocked up a banner for the sequel, as it would appear if Netflix funded the project. "Dredd 2: I'd do it!!" he wrote in response, complimenting the world and its "gold mine of Awesome Mega City 1 stories."

Over 145,000 people have signed a fan petition titled "Bring Back Dredd," which calls for a continuation of the 2012 cult classic. According to the petition, "With the success of series such as 'Daredevil,' 'Jessica Jones,' and 'The Man in the High Castle,' the clamour of the growing fanbase for more from the incredible world of the 2012 'Dredd' movie cannot be ignored." It suggests a pay-to-view TV series or a new movie based on the original film.

This isn't the first time Urban has thrown his support behind "Dredd 2." Back in 2014, he thanked fans for their support and ensured that "we're working very, very hard to bring you 'Dredd 2.'"

As Netflix has revived several old series, like "Fuller House," a sequel to "Dredd" isn't entirely outside the realm of possibility for them. According to Uproxx, the first film cost $45 million to make, where Netflix paid $60 million for "The Ridiculous 6." However, as of the time of this article, Netflix has not yet expressed interest in the property.
