New Trailer For The Judge Dredd Fanfilm, Judge Minty; Word On “Official Unofficial” New Dredd Short

Steven Sterlacchini‘s Judge Dredd fan film Judge Minty is finally getting ready to take up residence on the internet, free for all and openly not-for profit. Ahead of that release – which is stil set for a vague “April or May,” here’s a trailer for the film.

I’ve seen the whole thing, and I think the trailer sells the film short, a little… come “April or May” you’ll see for yourself.

Meanwhile, Adi Shankar, one of the producers of last year’s Dredd, this week took part in a Reddit AMA and admitted, as you’d expect, that any hopes for a sequel are dead. The first picture “totally bombed,” he said, citing issues with the R-rating. Nonetheless, Shankar is not done with the character, saying:

I am working on a Dredd short in the vein of #DirtyLaundry … you’re actually the first person to know about this ..

Dirty Laundry was Shankar’s Punisher short with Thomas Jane, not officially sanctioned and deftly dodging copyright issues. Quite how Shankar is going to work Dredd through the same model I do not know, nor if Karl Urban will be involved at all.

If you didn’t see Dirty Laundry, do check it out. At least this will give you some idea, however vague, of what Shankar wants to pull off. Something to look forward to at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, maybe?
