‘Dredd’ Director is Off Project


This summer, we had a brief update on the movie “Dredd,” which was an image of Karl Urban as the comic book character. The film had a director at that time, Pete Travis, but due to some reported drama on the project Travis is no longer part of reboot of Judge Dredd.

According to 24 Frames, principal photography on the project, which Travis was part of, is complete, but now that the movie has gone into post-production, he has left the project due to conflicts with the movie’s executives and producers which had to do with “creative disagreements.”

While Travis is a new name for me, I wonder how much his departure will affect the production.

I guess that until we see some actual footage of the movie, that we can start “judging” it more.

We’ll keep you posted about “Dredd.” In the meantime, what do you think of Pete Travis’s departure from the project? Hit it with your comments to the right.

    Peter Travis is an unknown name for me, but as far as creative differences, the updates that I was reading from the creator of Judge Dredd himself over the summer seemed pleased with the production at the time. I don’t think that there will be much of an effect on the film with his departure.

    LOL. Yeah, Cherrybell, the dismissal of a director usually isn’t a big deal.

    When the unknown director of the remake of a really bad film adaptation of a marginally good comic leaves the project…well you do the math
