Yes, producer Adi Shankar is calling attention to himself again, but this time it’s with an educational video about the economics of sequels. Those who work in the movie business will already know most of this, but if you don’t follow it that closely, he explains things pretty concisely and in a fun way.
The bottom line is that you’re not getting a Dredd sequel unless a major celebrity wants it to happen. The narrative as to why that is was interesting to me, though. I hope it is to you too, once you get past the fact that a guy who draws Xs on his hands and paints his face is telling you how to do business.
Now, 2000AD fans: who could Dwayne Johnson play? Maybe a crossover movie where he’s Rogue Trooper?
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
