A Musical Plea to Make Dredd II
Composers Jon and Al Kaplan have released their latest internet musical and its humorous plea to bring in Karl Urban for Dredd II. Dredd: The Musical points out that there are many more villains in Mega-City One that need to be judged. The two minute thirty-five second song nugget also includes a reminder of why the 1995 Judge Dredd movie was not-so-lovely. If you’re not a fan of the comics that the movies were based on, you can cheat a bit and check out this handy everything-you-need-to-know-guide by Rich Barrett at Mental Floss.
Jon and Al have been composing for several years and have a library of short internet musicals, such as Super Mario Bros.: The 8-Bit Opera and Die Hard: The Musical (Alan Rickman). There’s also an entire section dedicated to the The Schwarzenegger Follies and 24 SEASON TWO: The Musical.
Not limited to the viral videos, the brother composers also created the unauthorized musical parody of The Silence of the Lambs film, Silence! The Musical, which played Off Broadway and garnered its own New York Times theater review.
