80,000 sign Dredd movie sequel petition, ‘Day of Action’ announced

Make a Dredd Sequel CampaignMore than 80,000 people have now signed a petition calling for a sequel to the DREDD film organised by Judge Dredd fans and backed by 2000AD publishers Rebellion and Judge Dredd actor actor Karl Urban. The response to the petition has been just incredible and the endorsement of the owners of Judge Dredd has seen the numbers surpass everyone’s expectations.

But the campaign still need your help – so, on 18th September, we’re being encouraging everyone to take part in a massive Dredd Sequel Day of Action.

“We’ve already made the moneymen who could get behind a sequel sit up and take notice by consistently keeping the DVD and Blu-Ray in the charts on Amazon and now on Netflix,” say the petion team. “Now we’re asking everyone who’s signed the petition to come together next Wednesday and drive DREDD back up the charts.

“If everyone who’s signed the petition bought an extra DVD or Blu-Ray (either for themselves or as a present for a friend) or rented/bought it on iTunes and Netflix it will send the loudest signal yet that we want more DREDD!”

So spread the word that on Wednesday 18th September: you’re going to bring DREDD back into the public eye! Plus, it’s the day that the new comic book sequel comes out, with lots of media attention planned for this and the campaign.

• Sign up to the petition to make a DREDD sequel here and ‘like’ the campaign on Facebook. Rebellion has also released an official T-shirt for the campaign, so you can wear your support with pride!
