The new ‘Dredd’ Trailer is out. What do you think? Will it be the LAW?
Here is the old 1995 Judge Dredd Below:
Fact: Judge Dredd was actually my first theater ‘R’ rated movie. I bought a ticket to Casper and snuck in.
Producer Andrew Mcdonald had this to say,
“The main thing about Dredd is that it’s a fantastic comic that was completely messed up 20 years ago. Our idea is to make a very hard, R-rated, gritty, realistic movie of Dredd in Megacity, so we’ve got to get the tone right. He’s not going to take off his helmet. His bike is going to feel real. He’s going to hit people and it’s going to feel real. There’s been a change in comic-book movies; they were treated unseriously and now they’re treated seriously. We’ve cast a guy called Karl Urban to play Dredd. We’ll be shooting in Johannesburg, it’s being directed by Pete Travis, we’re shooting with the people who did ‘District 9′ – and if we get it right, Alex [Garland] has a couple of ideas for other stories as well. It’s not based on any one comic, and [creator] John Wagner is involved in every decision.”
I actually enjoyed the older Judge Dredd, so I’m thinking this has potential. What do you think?
So I just saw this announcement and had to comment on it. Another Judge Dredd movie coming? They didn’t learn their lesson from the first one? Say it ain’t so boys, say it ain’t so. I am sure with all the success that comic book movies have had it was just to hard to resist another shot at. So is this a series reboot? Or a whole new plot line? It remains to be seen. All I can say is, please, please don’t put Stallone back in it. Here is the link.
