I always assume because this thread has never been locked, that he's still out there. Waiting.

Dunno how much more explicit Garland has to be than this:

Final nail in the that coffin. :'(

Well it didn't make it's money back and even though the DVD sales were impressive it was still considered a loss in La La land.

I knew it was on the cards- but I still feel miserable about it.

"GARLAND: How can I say this without being soppy? It’s touching. It means something that these people support the film in that way, but the thing people want, which is a sequel, I don’t think is going to happen....I think it will happen one day, let me rephrase that, but it's not going to happen with with me and the people who made the last one."

I'm guessing Alex doesn't read this but it'd be interesting to know if the potential for Dredd came to mind while watching Fury Road (if he did). I know the budgets are different but maybe focussing on the crazy characters of the cursed earth rather than an epic mass car chase would bring costs down a bit and also work to Dredd's strengths. Plus I recall Mad Max having a few production problems which may have seen costs rise.

Dredd is probably considered 'toxic' by the money men so no chance of a sequel there. Not yet anyway but something like a Mad Max clone, some future cop having to cross the desert to do whatever a Cop's gotta do will inevitably be made. Very badly made I assume. Asylum Pictures will make a cheapy rip off for the Scy Fi channel  and other 'original' projects, like re imagining Damnation Alley, No Blade of Grass,The Postman even will embarrass themselves at your local theatre soon.

I don't know that Damnation Alley or The Postman could embarrass themselves any more than they've already done. (Actually, I'd kill for a reimagined Damnation Alley. The book's shit, the movie's shit. The only good part is the core idea.)

I can be happy with this.  One of the (if not THE)Best Cult Movies of all Time. It will always be in my Top 10 Favs of Comic book movies.  That and no crappy Film Exec Crapped Up sequel to ruin it.

That's actually a good point: what's worse than no sequel? A disappointing sequel!
Just be happy with the masterpiece we've got.

Its for this reason that I am waiting to see how DeadPool 2 turns out now that the La La Execs see the money it can make.
