New JUDGE DREDD movie back on the cards?

Well, according to reports: yeah.

"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!"
Decent British producers (let's not kid ourselves that being set on the American continent is really in any way that important to the Dredd mythos - the cynical worldview, all ours, sorry). Could be promising. The first attempt at bringing the character to screen was, to my eyes, a near miss. A fine looking film, if only they'd worked harder on the script and the tone. And by errors in script and tone, I mean: just which the fuck Einstein hired Rob Schneider to ruin every scene he appears in? Verisimilitude, people!

Hell, everyone in UK comics seems to have a story about being taken into Sly Stallone's trailer, where he'd grill them on the minutia of Dredd lore. Stallone almost got Dredd. But what's the point of giving the embodiment of faceless authority a face? That's right - it still rankles. Fuck you, Hollywood.

this was on at 2am the other day and I stayed up until the end.

You are right about the production design; the Lawgiver, ABC Warrior & Mean Machine were great. The Judge uniforms were good, tho leather might have been better than that wetsuit fabric.

but Schneider...jesus.

If I had any sway over the production design on a new Dredd movie, I'd tell them to base the Judge uniforms on the Frank Quitely covers for THE COMPLETE JUDGE DREDD: the elbow and knee pads seem so much more workable if you incorporate them into the gloves and boots.

Well the Mean Machine design was Chris Cunningham, so that's why it looked great. I think the real problem is that the movie was made back to back with Demolition Man, and that movie has this great black humor to it and Judge Dredd is just completely flat. That and Armand Assante is just fucking terrible. He ruins the film a lot more than Schnieder.

When I was a kid, The Ferg out of JUDGE CAL was a personal fave of my mates, my dad, and me. Him and Spikes Harvey Rotten. And Tweek. Anyway, I digress. Schneider shat on my childhood. He's my Jar Jar.

I know a guy here in Canada who was working on a JD movie script some years ago- Death was going to be the main villain and apparently they had plans to shoot it in India-!>>>?

Course it never happened, which is probably a good thing.

Personally I'd love to see another attempt at Dredd. If it was successful then it could open the doors for other 2000Ad productions.

What I wouldn't give to see the ABC Warriors or Strontium Dog on the big screen.

Yeah and I'm with you on The Ferg thing too,I remember shedding a tear at his demise in the comic: With Schneider I just wanted him 'Dead' within the first few minutes of the movie.

Mark said...

So much 2000AD stuff seems like an easy fit with Hollywood. How easy should it be to pitch ABC Warriors in a post-TRANSFORMERS world? "Seven wild, crazy, mixed-up robots clean up a frontier planet. It's TRANSFORMERS meets SEVEN SAMURAI". Hell, it'd make a great CGI animated movie. Even I'd pay to see that.

Holy shit, a Bollywood Dredd movie? Judge Death, Judge Kali, Judge Ganesha!
