Scribe Alex Garland Reveals His Plans and Vision for 'Dredd' Sequel

'If I was involved in a second movie, it would be about origins and subversion,' so the screenwriter says of his design for the possible follow-up movie.

"Dredd" hasn't even opened in theaters nationwide, but scribe Alex Garland already gushed about his vision on the film's sequel. In a recent Q&A session with fans on 2000AD Online, Garland revealed details of his plans for the possible follow-up movie, including which character would appear and what the story would be like.

"If I was involved in a second movie, it would be about origins and subversion, and Chopper would feature," he said. "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. 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."

When asked if the Dark Judges could be brought to the big screen, Garland openly responded, "I think I'd try to make them really scary. Not play them for laughs." He added, "Just make them totally malevolent and lethal. And use practical effects where possible, except for Fire, which would be an on-set nightmare."

"The existential side to the Dark Judges is that they don't see a point to life. If my film-trilogy daydream was to play out, I would completely rewrite my original script for the Dark Judges - because it was junk - and start again. And I'd make them deeply f***ing weird and spooky, and sort of philosophical. And if everyone hates that idea, relax, because it'll never happen."

Revealing which classic "Dredd" villains he would like to bring to the sequel, Garland said, "If there is a sequel, I'm imagining 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. I quite like the idea of Satanus. But much more mutated."

Starring Karl Urban as the titular judge, "Dredd" follows the lead character who is the most feared judge among other elite Street Judges in Mega City One. He has the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot if necessary. It will hit theaters in the U.S. on September 21.
