Good news, Dredd fans!

A sequel to the 2012 cult-favorite Dredd movie is one step closer to happening.

The Destination Star Trek convention is taking place in Frankfurt, Germany where Karl Urban, who played Bones in the J.J. Abrams movies, was on hand to offer an update on a Dredd sequel.

What Culture reports that Karl Urban stated talks are taking place between director and writer Alex Garland and Lionsgate.

According to the report, Karl Urban noted that while Dredd didn't do all that well at the box office, the studio has noticed the audience as a result of DVD sales.

The studio has more than likely also noticed the fan response to a sequel for Dredd as petitions are online as well as fan sites and Facebook pages supporting a second movie.
