Biz Break: Comic Con Is Over, So Meow What Do We Talk About? Justice.

By Jodi Clager | Trade News | July 22, 2013 | Comments ()

What can we do meow that all of the Marvel news has been talked about and the Hiddleston-as-Loki video has gotten millions pregnant? We could talk about the sequel to 2001’s Super Troopers that is filming later this year. On the radio show Bald Faced Truth, Officers Mac and Farva (Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan) confirmed that legal difficulties had been resolved and a script was already completed. If all goes according to plan, I bet we’ll see these chicken f*ckers in theaters some time next year.

In an officer sequel that promises less shenanigans and more blood and justice, Karl Urban talked about a Dredd sequel at Comic Con. According to Ain’t It Cool News, Urban and Alex Garland (writer and producer) have been thinking about the directions the next movie might take. The initial theatrical run of Dredd pulled around $36 million, falling short of its budget. Then the DVD/Blu-ray sales took in another $10 million, making another ride along with Dredd a very real possibility.

If you haven’t seen Dredd, go buy it or rent it now. Right now. There’s no long, drawn out setup before you get any action and Dredd isn’t chasing a generic love interest. It’s just cold, hard justice being served by a man without a speech impediment that keeps his helmet on. Watch it and then sign the petition to get the sequel made. You’re welcome.

O.J. Simpson is currently spending time in prison, but that doesn’t keep him from sending someone out to FX to negotiate a role on “Anger Management”. That’s right! If O.J. gets out of his 33 year sentence early, you might be able to watch one show and get double the misogyny! Double the histories of violence against women! Charlie Sheen and O.J. Simpson in one convenient and avoidable television slot!

I haven’t even told you the best part.

“O.J. would play a thinly veiled version of himself — a famous con who’s pissed off about being unjustly incarcerated,” said [Norman] Pardo

Hmm.

    Y'know, seeing Urban in the header pic and in the Judge helmet, DC could do worse than pick him as Batman opposite Henry Cavill.

    I feel like that sentence went to the animals.

  • John W

    If they're going to do a sequel I hope they have enough sense not to do it in 3D. That's what prevented me from seeing it when it came out. I did buy the blu ray though.

  • space_oddity

    Just going to join in on the Dredd love fest going on. One of my absolute favorite movies from last year.

  • Marc Greene

    I loved it and dragged friends to see it again and bought the blu-ray. People I talked to about it were always like, "Oh, Stallone?" and the best comparison I had was like "No, more like Robocop 1, but with less silly"

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    I'm willing to do terrible things to get a Dredd sequel. Terrible, dirty, filthy things that most people would go to therapy for.

  • God Of Bal-Sagoth

    From what I hear, you'd do those things for a sandwich.

  • Boo_Radley

    I thought Dredd was great. So there.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Ah, how timely. Last night I watched Red for the first time. And I thought: I didn't fill out a Pajiba 5. But if I had, it would've consisted only of Karl Urban.

  • Nat Kittyface

    I think Dredd's biggest shortcoming was just existing after The Raid. IT'S THE SAME MOVIE. Just one has some sci-fi in it.

    That doesn't make it bad, and it's not even Dredd's fault. But it did mean that it took me until I rewatched it on DVD to really appreciate it. In the theatre, all I could think of was "And this happened in The Raid, and then this happened in The Raid, and now here's this part that happened in The Raid.. man, I really liked this movie when I saw it before, when it was called The Raid."

    But I liked it enough even then to contribute to the $10M in DVD sales even after doing so with my contribution to the $38M in movie ticket sales, so I totally did my part.

  • John G.

    They're both good.

  • Bert_McGurt

    I hope they're able to get Brian Cox back for the Super Troopers sequel.

    "I swear to god, I'll pistol-whip the next guy that says 'shenanigans'!"

  • Conor

    Hands-down one of my favourite films of 2012, and it absolutely NEEDS a sequel.

    They nailed absolutely everything. The performances, the world-building, the action and especially the score.

    If we don't get a sequel to this and a 3rd Grown Ups movie gets green-lit (it will), then there truly is no justice in the world.

  • John G.

    Dredd was awesome.

    The slo-mo drug was used just enough to be fun without overdoing it. Dredd seriously never takes off his helmet. How many action stars would agree not to show their face just for authenticity? The whole movie takes place inside one building and it doesn't feel forced. Anyone can die, and most do, some in truly inventive ways (I still think about being skinned alive under slo-mo and then dropped 50 stories). Best of all, Rob Schneider is nowhere near this movie.

    I'd love a sequel.

  • Nadine

    Urban apparently is a fucking gigantahuge Dredd fan IRL. When approached to make the film, knowing he was first choice, he basically said he'd do it but the second the mask came off, he would walk. He would not make a Dredd film where the Judge's face was shown.

  • delle

    "Dredd" has been on my to-be-watched list since it came out, however now I'm sitting here wondering why I'm being asked to watch a movie in which the delectable Karl Urban's face is covered the entire time.

    As a baffled friend asked when she noticed I had bought caffeine-free, sugar-free pop..."What's the point?!?"

  • John G.

    there is no point to soda, even if it has lots of caffeine. If you want caffeine, drink coffee. It has way more. If you want sugar-free, drink coffee, it has no sugar unless you add it. (brought to you by me the coffee fiend/soda hater)

    More importantly, you say "pop", and I'm trying to verify where that is said. Do you live in Canada? Or a US state that borders Canada?

  • delle

    I am a coffee-hater and a pop-hater but a tested and true alcohol-lover. I only bought the pop to have on hand in case a guest wanted to make a mixed drink...though personally, I believe this practise of adding pop to liquor is a sacrilege.

    I am from Newfoundland, from off the coast of Canada, but have been living up with the Mainlanders for some years, forcing me to adopt their terms so they know what I'm talking about...since back home we say neither "pop" nor "soda" and instead call it "drink"...as in, "a can of drink" or "a case of drinks", presumably so as to differentiate it from the kind of drink you get down the pub...lol

  • kirbyjay

    I'm from the greater Boston area and "tonic" was what we always called the fizzy soft drinks. Then more people were born and our speech homogenized and tonic became soda, which I find very difficult to say but nobody knows what tonic is anymore.
    My grandfather was from Heart's Delight, Newfoundland, on the St. John's peninsula. It's in a series of three tiny towns, Heart's Delight, Heart's Desire and Heart's Content and 2 of the roads were named for family and 2 are from families that he feuded with. Warms my heart.

  • John G.

    I find Newfoundland fascinating. This only adds to my appreciation of the them.

  • Mary

    I enjoy the fact that the casting call basically read "we need a B list actor who doesn't care that his face will not be shown in the entire movie" and Karl Urban went "me me me!!!" even though he is the most beautiful man on the planet.

  • Finance_Nerd

    I suggest that they add Rob Schneider to the sequel. In it he will be skinned alive under slo-mo and then dropped 50 stories... not using CGI.
