New "Judge Dredd" Movie in Development

Posted: December 20th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
New "Judge Dredd" Movie in DevelopmentSubmit Comment
Rebellion and 2000 AD have announced that a new Judge Dredd movie is currently in development. Together with DNA Films, the movie production company behind such sci-fi films as "Sunshine" and "28 Weeks Later," will go into production on "Dredd" in 2009.

Jason Kingsley, CEO and Creative Director said: "We can't give away too many details at this point, but we're looking forward to working with DNA Films to bring Judge Dredd back to the big screen."

Judge Dredd is a comics character whose strip in the British science fiction anthology 2000 AD is the magazine's longest running. Dredd is a law enforcement officer in a violent city of the future where uniformed Judges combine the powers of police, judge, jury and executioner. He and his fellow Judges are empowered to arrest, sentence and even execute criminals on the spot.

Back in 1995, director Danny Cannon helmed a "Judge Dredd" movie, which stars Sylvester Stallone, Diane Lane and Rob Schneider.

Are you looking forward to a new "Judge Dredd" movie?

rocketman it wasn't Stallone's version like all actors he just did what was written on the script *toby spiderman 3* the director and writer are the ones who messed the movie up. Stallone did a great job and he looked perfict for the part. Just think if the wirter and director from sin city did the first one for example the movie would have blown people away.

i now what yer saying Waffleman,but it seemed more like a stallone film rather than a dredd film to me,and it was about as far away from the Dredd i grew up with as you could get.also he had to much influence over Danny Cannon(director),that plus the studio poking its nose in resulted in a mess of Phantom menace proportions(if you're a 2000ad fan ),a classic case of not enough respect for the source material.....i do hope that we get a flick thats across with Aliens and black hawk down in tone,but in the Dredd universe...dredd has sooooo much potential its unreal.

rob schneider was the only redeeming character in that movie

F*ck yeah, I admit that the Stallone movie was garbage, but that wasn't his fault, it had an awesome cast, Jurgen Prochnow, Max Von Sydow, Diane Lane, it was just horrible story that made that movie what it was. Me and Waffle Man often talk about how that movie had awesome potential and how it should be remade. Unfortunately Stallone is a little too old now because he was PERFECT for Dredd, but if they take the movie seriously they can make a huge, successful franchise out of it.

Judge Dredd is one of the best comic characters ever created and needs to be done correctly on screen. The key to the character is his lack of emotion; he's not a robot but his personality is completely tied in with what is right or wrong in the eyes of the law. That's the reason behind his catch phrase 'I am the law ', He has no regard for the other trivialities of life like love - he only loves the law anything else has been burned from his psyche or repressed. That's the point of the character and what makes him unique, he's like a machine with no regard for even himself and he'll go to any degree to protect the law of his city. The screen writer of the original movie (William Wisher I think) had absolutely no idea about how to portray the character. When it comes down to it - Dredd is simple to write when you realize that he only has one real motivation, and all the comedy and absurdity in the comic arise from his tunnel vision in following the letter of the law. Hes a man who IS a machine - More than Robobop. If you want an emotional center to a Dredd story - that will come from other characters like Chopper, Anderson or PJ Maybe - not Dredd himself. There are precedents onscreen of characters that we like but don't really 'Know ' - COLUMBO being one example - it can be done, so there's no need for Hollywood to muck it up again. Get Pat Mills Alan Grant or John Wagner involved with the script they're all geniuses. Actor wise I think Clint Eastwood was the template but its too late for him now. Mickey Rourke would be a better choice than Ron Perlman, either would be good. Bruce Campbell? On looks alone the actor Richard Burgi would be a good choice - Look him up. DO IT RIGHT THIS TIME
