Judge Dredd: Early Title and Synopsis


We reported earlier this summer that a Judge Dredd movie was in development and that Karl Urban was in negotiations to play the comic book character. It looks like the movie is further along now; it has been given an official title — or at least an early title — and it is “Dredd.”

We also have a brief synopsis about the upcoming movie: “Dredd” takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot – if necessary. The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision of director Peter Travis bring “Dredd” to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip.

Keep an eye out for more Judge Dredd information to come in the next following months.

    Well I can only say that it should all be uphill after the Sylvester Stallone mishap with the original movie. They need to go less spoofy and over the top and more gritty, like The Dark Knight.
