Karl Urban is working 'very, very hard' to bring 'Dredd 2' to life -- VIDEO

Karl Urban wants Dredd fans to know that he hasn’t given up on a sequel – and neither should you.

While attending Emerald City Comic Con, the actor – who starred as the comic book hero in the 2012 reboot – thanked supporters and gave this update: ”On behalf of everyone involved with the film Dredd – from [original screenwriter/producer] Alex Garland to the DNA boys to myself – we really, really appreciate it and we’re working very, very hard to bring you Dredd 2.”

The Urban-led update grossed about $36 million worldwide and cost an estimated $50 million to make, but it performed well in DVD and Blu-ray sales, which has helped make a sequel a possibility. Plus, Dredd publisher 2000 AD fully supports the idea – they’re the ones hosting the official petition for Dredd 2.

Here’s Urban’s full message:
