New Judge Dredd Movie

(From IMBD News)

Comic book movie Judge Dredd is to return for a sequel - 13 years after the futuristic anti-hero was portrayed by Sylvester Stallone.

The rights have been bought up by DNA films, the production company behind several of British director Danny Boyle's movies, including last year's Sunshine and 2002's 28 Days Later.

The news was announced on the official 2000Ad website, the comic book on which the film was based, according to

Jason Kingsley, CEO and creative director of the comic book franchise, says, "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."

It is not yet known whether Stallone will reprise the title role.


I can't imagine Sly will be recast as Dredd.

My over riding memory of the film was seeing it in Manchester back in '95 when I was "escaping London and life" for a few months and then getting homesick as almost every crowd scene had people I knew from Slimelight or other areas of the London Clubland in them!

Will be looking forward to seeing how the new film develops and with Rebellion  and DNA Filsm behind it I reckon it'll be a big improvement on the '95 film.
