Judge Dredd TV show in production


Thos of us desperate for a sequel to the kick ass Dredd are in for some good news. A Dredd TV show, called Judge Dredd: Mega-City One, is in the early stages of production! OK, that might not actually be good news for a sequel, but it’s good news if you want more Dredd in your life. Rebellion, the comic’s publisher, and an independent entertainment studio called IM Global are making the live-action show and will likely shop it around. 

Hopefully they’re leaning more Karl Urban than Sylvester Stallone. The plot, which centers around a team of judges doing their judge thing around the city, is said to focus on issues that will reflect modern day ones. Jason and Chris Kingsley, owners of Rebellion, worked on Dredd so there’s a good chance this will be as solid as that. The two said, in some sort of joint quote, “Thanks to the legions of fans who have kept up pressure on social media, and a lot of background work and enthusiasm, we aim to make a big budget production that will satisfy both our vast comics audience and the even greater general screen-watching public.”

Check out the poster for the show below.
