The new Judge Dredd film has been kept under wraps since it was first announced. The reboot has been reported to have begun filming yesterday in Johannesburg and will be shot in 3D.
As far as comic book movies go imagine DIE HARD taking place within the world of BLADE RUNNER; that’s the JUDGE DREDD script offered by Alex Garland. Clocking in at 110 pages, this is not the most complex or plot heavy story. What is offered is a high-octaine, action filled screenplay, that is both hardcore and gritty.
The Judge Dredd movie is being made by the writer/producer team from The Beach, 28 Days Later, Alex Garland and Andrew Macdonald. Allon Reich is set to produce with Michael Murphy (District 9) to co-produce.
Pete Travis who was the director behind Omagh, Vantage Point and Endgame is also involved with the movie. To keep the movie as close to the comic as possible John Wagner has signed up as creative consultant with Jason Kingsley and Chris Kingsley, owners of Rebellion/2000 AD to also co-produce.
‘Alex Garland’s script is faithful to the original concept that made Judge Dredd a favourite bad-ass hero. It’s a high-octane slay ride through the dark underbelly of the vast future city. A fan pleaser. With their track record, I have every faith in Alex Garland, Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich.’
‘I grew up reading Judge Dredd. The incredible writers and artists of 2000 AD were formative influences on me. Andrew, Allon and I have developed this adaptation of Judge Dredd with an emphasis on adrenaline and realism, but with all the scale and spectacle of Mega-City One. We think Pete’s propulsive, edgy style is a perfect match for the project.’
