Judge Dredd in 3-D
The news out of Cannes is that JUDGE DREDD is returning to the Silver Screen. This new take will be a “high-octane” $45 million production, filmed in Johannesburg, South Africa and directed by Pete Travis (VANTAGE POINT), according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The script by Alex Garland (28 DAYS LATER) appears to have the approval of co-creator John Wagner. Wager and artist Carlos Ezquerra developed the furturistic lawman with editor Pat Mills for the UK comic book 2000 A.D. in 1977.
The character previously appeared in the visually appealing but lack-luster JUDGE DREDD (1995), embodied by Sylvester Stallone.
