I would almost hope they did a Animated Dredd over a Live Action TBH.

It could be done,but how profitable would it be,that the real problem.

The 2012 movie set the groundwork for adaptations to come, so I'd assume a continuation of that would be the most logical way to go.

Maybe.

Karl being Dredd would be the big selling point - everything else is up for grabs I'd imagine.

I would guess they'd want to tweak the costume anyway, depending on what rights DNA etc have to the movie version of that + it would be a fresh start for merchandising.

Unless it's going to be heavily green screen/vfx heavy, it would be a balance between how it might sit within the locations/vehicles they can source within that budget.

Tonally, I wouldn't expect it to be 80s wacky Dredd, but it could be less bleak than the 2012 version.

All very hypothetical anyway.

Given the amount of time that has passed a 'reboot' –soft or otherwise– might be the preferred option by a new investor/whoever's in charge of creatively bringing it back. The more time passes, the more a blank-slate makes sense in terms of marketing and creativity. After all it won't be DNA's film and it's newfound awareness that another iteration would be capitalising on.

The problem for me is that "dredd" was the perfect iteration of the character.....i don't want to see a reboot, I want more Urban and Thirlby.

In worst case,you could take the Evil Dead 2 approach.Have the same character and setting,but dont really reference the first movie.

Would Karl Urban be interested in returning to Dredd if his Marvel role extends over several films and let's face it, that's where the money is? Oliva Thirlby might prefer more serious roles like her stint in 2015's The Stanford Prison Experiment so I guess it's going to be a new actor to play Dredd and a new Anderson too.

We still have to see Thor:Ragnarok,so its too early to guess.

I would say Urban would do it at the drop of a hat.
