There is currently a petition going around asking for a Dredd television series to be made by someone. The petition may have received a bump in urgency this morning as 2000AD is also backing the request from fans.
With 136,000 signatures already, fans Frank Palmer and Brian Ritchie are hoping that Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO, or another production company will see the value behind bringing the Karl Urban character back for more action.
“When Brian and I first began the ‘Make A DREDD Sequel’ page on Facebook we never dreamt we’d get this level of support from fellow fans,” said Frank Palmer. “And when 2000 AD got in touch to say they’d like to support us, it was a dream come true and the petition we started has gone on to number 136,000 names.”
Jason Kingsley, co-owner of Rebellion and 2000 AD, said: “What Frank and Brian have achieved over the last three years has been incredible – they’ve kept the fires burning and their decision to open out the campaign to include TV AND films is a sensible one. Who amongst us wouldn’t want to see a DREDD series from Netflix or Amazon? I wish them all the best and thank them for keeping the faith. In the meantime, we’ve been doing – and will continue to do – all we can to give the fans what they want, which is more from the incredibly rich world of Judge Dredd.”
