Oh that wouldn't bother me. For me there is a big gulf separating books and movies/TV adaptations. You can't really compare the two. Bladerunner is a great film based on a rather mediocre and for me forgettable book. Film is an entertainment..
Once I am dead I would not want others 'continuing' and diluting my stories and characters for mass market gain quite possibly distorting public perception of my original, robbing it of gravitas.*
At least 2 live action series and some made for TV films. And I vaguely remember at least one cartoon series.Was there a Robo Cop TV show?
Not just sci-fi, o toned down a bit it could have been a Clint Eastwood Dirty Harry type vehicle. Still loved it though.Blade Runner was a brilliant film. In my opinion it doesn't need another film as it cold never match the original. Upon rewatching the sequel I did enjoy it, but (again in my opinion) this was only ever intended as a one-off film; we didn't really need to be told the further adventures of Decker, it was better to imagine the possibilities.
As for Dredd, there is so much mileage in the 2000ad universe. There are so many stories that could be told that don't even have to relate to Dredd. as much as Stallone's film gets slated, Mega City One was portrayed brilliantly and its a shame this has never been followed up. The Urban Dredd movie was also great, but with slight cosmetic changes could have been any generic sci-fi adventure movie; it barely used the JD licence.
