However, despite generally positive word of mouth the film was only able to conjure up some $35 million in global box office and now producer Adi Shankar is on record stating that a sequel is "Highly unlikely". He also chimes in on the shoddy way Lionsgate marketed the film, especially their insistence on adding "3D" to the theatrical title and how that saddled the production with B-movie overtones. Said Shankar in a Q and A on reddit;
Shankar: Ugh sooooooooooooooooooo agree with you RE adding 3D to the title. Ewww [...] It also screams gimmick which is sad because the 3D in Dredd was so not a gimmick.
Still Shankar had a wee bit of good news as he announced his intention to do a Dredd short as a 'love note' to the fans ala last year's "Punisher" short; "Dirty Laundry" which starred Thomas Jane and seemed to come out of nowhere.
If the "Dredd" short measures up to the "Dirty Laundry" I, for one, will be a happy guy.
