It was only back in March that "Dredd 3D" producer Adi Shankar was declaring any hopes of a sequel to last year's film adaptation all but dead. Between its R-rating, the limited rollout of 2D prints of the film (some people didn't want to pay 3D prices for the movie), and maybe a little of the stink of 1994's "Judge Dredd," Lionsgate's "Dredd 3D" was D.O.A. at the box office.

But then, "Dredd 3D" became one of the most successful home video releases of the last year, and 2000AD, publisher of the "Judge Dredd" comics, thinks there's a good chance fans might be able to convince Lionsgate to make a sequel.

Since the future of a "Dredd 3D" feature film sequel is about as likely as spinoff movie featuring Ma-Ma, Karl Urban's take on the toughest cop in Mega City One might not be gone forever. IGN (via Splashpage) has confirmed that publisher 2000 A.D. will continue the adventures of movie Dredd this September in a comic book sequel.

For now, the publisher is simply teasing us with a single image (you can see the full promo after the jump)--will a "Dredd" comic be enough to sate fans of the movie? And what happens if fans support the book?

Participating in a Reddit AMA last week, "Dredd 3D" producer Adi Shankar outright nixed the possibility of sequel to one of last year's most viscerally fun movies.

"Dredd 3D" is a nearly perfect action movie, stripped down and kicked bloody and growling into the world. I'm not sure how much sense that metaphor just made, but this second adaptation of the "2000 A.D." character is lean, mean, and efficient in a way many recent action films fail to be.

Comparisons to Gareth Evans' "The Raid" will persist and they're fair: but whereas Evans delivers a knockout of technical martial arts prowess, director Pete Travis and "28 Days Later" screenwriter Alex Garland deliver a gun-crazy drugs and murder movie.

In a world seized by crime, a fresh-faced rookie sets out to clean up the streets. When he's inevitably strung up by roving gangs of telepathic teens, it's up to young Judge Joseph Dredd to step up. 2000 AD editor Matt Smith is writing "Judge Dredd: Year One: The Long, Hard Road" for IDW this March, accompanied by interior artist Simon Coleby and cover artist Greg Staples.

The story will bring Dredd face-to-face with a mental menace in his first team-up with the Psi-Division. Minds are certain to be blown.

Check out a variant cover and the official release after the jump.

One of the biggest surprises of 2012 was "Dredd 3D," the second big-screen adaptation of "Judge Dredd" co-creators John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra's ultra-violent, fascist super cop. With "Star Trek" and "Return of the King" star Karl Urban in the lead, the 3D action movie found just the right balance of sneering viciousness and black humor without trying to ape the comic.

Unfortunately, moviegoers were for whatever reason apprehensive about seeing the movie, leading to a quiet death at the box office this summer. Which is a shame, because I'm really hoping Lionsgate will have faith in the film to revisit the same world with Urban in the lead.

You'll get a chance to see it for yourself when "Dredd" lands on DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD on January 8th. After the jump, we've got the full specs on the disc. But I implore you people, if you like some seriously brutal, dangerous, funny action, see "Dredd" ASAP.

Since it's inception, Mega-City One has been host to every form of crime, from block wars to nuclear attack, and even the attempted genocide of the entire city at the hands of the Dark Judges. In all that time only one thing has been constant: the Judges. With the upcoming release of "Dredd 3D" this Friday, the 21st, it was about time for a top ten list counting down some of the most upstanding, and wretchedly vile Judges to ever grace the streets of the "Big Meg". Can you guess who'll be number one? Cause if you can't, then your guessing skills are seriously, seriously lacking.
