Executive Producer for the 2012 film Dredd, Adi Shankar, revealed to TheWrap that he has been creating an online mini-series revolving around the Dark Judges from the comic books that will be releasing for free later this month. This is not quite the full blown cinematic sequel that fans have been begging for since the film flopped at theaters two years ago, but it’s a step in the right direction and will give those fans another glimpse into the world surrounding Dredd.
The mini-series has been in development for the last two years, but Shankar is doing a good job of keeping details under wraps so not much is known about the project yet. As much as we would all love Karl Urban’s frowny Dredd face to make an appearence again, it’s unlikely this small free web series would have the funds to bring him on board, but it’s not entirely out of the question. Urban and his Dredd co-star, Olivia Thrillby, have been insistent on their desire for a Dredd sequel and have posted several videos thanking fans for their support – so it is entirely possible they could take big pay cuts or just be in for small cameo rolls to show support for a future sequel.
Adi Shankar even posted his own video to thank fans following #DayofDredd and to give a backstory on his own career.
It is also important to note that this mini-series will not be part of the on-screen universe of Dredd, but instead part of Shankar’s own “Bootleg Universe” that also contains his shorts for The Punisher, and Spider-Man’s arch nemisis, Venom.[button type=”link” link=”http://www.thewrap.com/dredd-ep-adi-shankar-reveals-dark-judges-miniseries-coming-soon-online/” variation=”btn-danger” target=”blank”]Source: TheWrap[/button]
