How about an animated version instead?

DNA/IMGlobal are not animation studios, neither do they have an animation dept, plus it would have a smaller audience than live-action which is not really encouraging if they were to spend years on a cartoon only for watch people not to bother seeing it.

Animated shows targeting an adult audience, that is a though one to sell.

This is a travesty! I spent 2 weeks trying to find a cinema that showed it more than once a day and then had to travel 20miles to see it! Went to go again a week later and it was No Longer Showing!!! They can't give sequels to shit films and then let a gem like Dredd slip by!!! Can we not get a kickstarter on for Dredd2???

It wasn't great. I still don't think they've got the tone and look right. Maybe a sin city route or 300 route might be interesting.

I really enjoyed Dredd and although I didn't help the box office by missing the cinema release I did go buy the bluray on day of release so I could see it in all its 3D glory and there is certainly some very nice use of the 3D in here too.
The film certainly deserved to be more widely seen and I hope that somehow Karl Urban get to don the famous helmet at least once more in the future.

To paraphrase John Doe from Seven, "only in a world this shitty does crud like Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters get a sequel and a brilliant film like Dredd doesn't."
Still we can live in hope and the short sounds good.

Ok, so the film was not flawless.
But as a serious, adult action film attempting to kick-start what would be an interesting (at the very least!) series of films, it was pretty damn good.
Absolutely gutted a sequesl is not forthcoming.
Not sure who to blame;
- studios for limted promotion / advertising
- cinemas for lack of showing times / 2D options
- short-sighted film fans assuming the usual dross
- or the so-called die-hard 'fans' of this iconic, cult character who just didn't get off their arse to go to the cinema
A sad day for film all round, as I for one would happily have paid over & above the going rate to see where writers (and more importantly - fans) such as Alex Garland would have taken us within the Dredd universe

I was really hoping for sequel as I loved it. It wasn't perfect, but it was 1000 times better than that 1995 version that should never, ever be spoken about.
I'd gladly pay to see a sequel and hope the DVD version becomes a cult classic.
People that don't know much about Dredd/2000 A.D. are missing out.

The future for hard R-rated action movies looks extremely bleak indeed. The Expendables wasn't even that violent (not to mention a bit shit) and that got softened for the sequel, and the less said about Die Hard 5 the better. At least the Stath is flying the flag, but we need more aggressive, bonkers, musclebound blood-frenzied and psychotic anti-hero types!!!

God damn it! If any film of last year deserves a sequel it was Dredd. Very disappointing!!!

What a shame as this was my favourite film of last year (Looper was the most disappointing). I really hope they change their minds and Karl Urban gets to carry on his great portrayal... and any reason to see Olivia Thirlby back on the screen can only be a good thing.

This was my fav film of last year. Karl Urban really nailed Dredd. Hopefully the sales of Blu-ray / DVD will make them change their minds, just like Tron Legacy seems to have done.

Adult action movies are a dying breed as there is no market for them unfortunately. Studios just want to churn out crap like Transformers to appeal to the big market which is young teenagers. Really gutted about this, my 3D copy of Dredd just arrived in the posts yesterday as well.

Such a shame. It deserved a sequel.

Very, very disappointed to hear the finality of this, even though the original hope was slim. Dredd remains one of the most memorable films of last year -- and shamefully under-rated by Empire to the tune of a whole star!
