Pete Travis’ 2012 film Dredd, starring Karl Urban, was the Judge Dredd adaptation many fans wanted to see. Even so, it struggled to make back its budget during its theatrical running, leading many to speculate that the possibility of a sequel was dead and buried. Then, Dredd was released on the home video market and found a new life on Blu-ray and DVD, which was just enough of a spark to give fans hope of seeing a follow-up film in the future. Urban is certainly on board and has encouraged fans to make their voices heard if they really wanted a sequel. The fans were listening.

Here’s the synopsis for Dredd 3D:
The future America is an irradiated waste land. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington DC, lies Mega City One–a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called “Judges” who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd (Karl Urban) is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge–a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of “Slo-Mo” experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed.
