Dredd Netflix-bound?

Take this with a HUGE grain of salt, but according to Superherohype Karl Urban is talking to venues like Netflix to continue the story of Judge Dredd in the television space.

I have no idea if this is true, but it’s a great idea because Dredd, while underwhelming in theaters in 2012–financially speaking, because it was an awesome movie that most importantly was true to the character–could be poised for a comeback on a space like Netflix, which would work really well toward expanding the world and the mythology of the Cursed Earth.

Luckily, the movie wasn’t terribly effects-heavy, so cost may not necessarily be an issue, and $50 million (or thereabouts) doesn’t sound like too much stretched over a season or two.

I also wonder, if Dredd were to to become a Netflix series, would they have an international partner, since the original movie was shot in South Africa. which has a look that was crucial to the movie.

Then again, being on Netflix is doing wonders for Daredevil, so who knows.
