Posted from the comic book message forum 2000 AD:
Rebellion and 2000 AD are proud to announce that Judge Dredd is coming to a cinema near you soon!
Together with DNA Films, the movie production company behind such great sci-fi movies such as Sunshine and 28 Weeks Later, Judge Dredd will go into production 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.’
We’ll keep you up to date with breaking news as it happens!
Oh goodie. Just what the world needs: a Judge Dredd reboot.
Seriously? Are you freaking kidding me? We don't have enough stupid looking comic book adaptations out there we have to dredge up this one? The 1995 version with Sylvester Stallone was fantastically bad (currently 15% fresh over at Rotten Tomatoes). I dont see the logic in wanting to try again with this.
And with this news, we completely forgot to mention that "The Phantom" was also greenlit to be rebooted last week.
Hollywood just doesn't get it.
