The final push is underway as independent filmmaker Oliver Hollingdale continues post-production work on Cursed Edge. The project began in late 2012, inspired by the call for fans to help continue epic story of the future lawmaker after successful home release sales numbers and cult fanfare since the theatrical release of the Pete Travis-directed 3D thriller, Dredd, last September, despite its failure to deliver at the box office.
Other Dredd-inspired projects and efforts by independent filmmakers have made their way online, including the recently broadcasted short film, Judge Minty. And with the continued support for the character, the story and the universe as a whole, actor Karl Urban, who played the title character in the original 2012 film has gone public in the past several months stating a shared sequel interest with Travis and Dredd scribe Alex Garland. Urban is especially engaging and pushing for support from the film’s most demographic, the fans who are eagerly waiting positive news for a sequel, some of who are currently leading the unofficial petition for the Make A Dredd Sequel, which has already been backed by tens of thousands of people, including the franchise’s original comic book publisher, Rebellion.
In the meantime, Hollingdale is ready share his reimagining of the Dredd universe with his own project, which has since evolved from a short film to a webseries. And a teaser for the episode is now available.
Cursed Edge stars Damien Gerard, Darren Carver, Steve Eames, Kiarnie Camp, Paul LaBelle and Jade Ramraut.
