Judge Dredd Will Get A Reboot

DNA Films, Reliance Big Entertainment and IM Global are teaming to develop a 3D film adaptation of John Wagner’s UK comic “Judge Dredd” reports Deadline

Alex Garland (“28 Days Later,” “Sunshine”) penned the script and Pete Travis (“Vantage Point”) will direct the sub-$50 million project set in a futuristic world where cops have become judge, jury – and if necessary – executioner.

The project will ignore the big-budget 1995 film adaptation starring Sylvester Stallone and will go back to the comic’s roots. Despite DNA’s deal with Fox, it seems Fox won’t be involved in the project.
