Dredd Scribe Talks Trilogy Potential

Even though “Dredd” hasn’t opened yet (it makes its initial global bow in the UK later this week), the film’s writer Alex Garland is already talking about sequel possibilities.

Talking with fans on 2000AD Online (via Bleeding Cool), Garland spoke about his aims for a possible sequel and what characters from the comics he would incorporate.

“If I was involved in a second movie, it would be about origins and subversion, and Chopper would feature. In fact, I think Chopper would start and end the story. Apart from him, my rough plan involves Fargo, Giant, Angel Gang, and a version of Satanus” he says.

Garland has already got ideas for even further ahead – “For a trilogy, add Cal and the Dark Judges. And Anderson would be in all three. But… just to be clear, this is hugely speculative and also unlikely, for any number of reasons.”

If there is a sequel, he says he imagines “spending about half the movie in the Cursed Earth, and I would try to come up with some new faces as well as some old ones.”
