Judge Dredd: Mega-City One TV series ‘in development’
Judge Dredd, the “incorruptible” ruthless law enforcer will be coming to the small screen for a new television series. A new series is now “in development”. IM Global and Rebellion have come to an agreement to bring the show to a live action serial format entitled ‘Judge Dredd: Mega City One’. The show will be set in the dystopian future of Megalopolis and centered around the East Coast of the United States of America.
“We’re very excited to be beginning the journey to get more of Judge Dredd’s Mega-City One on the television screen.” said Jason and Chris Kinglsey, heads of United Kingdom Publisher and game developer Rebellion.
The show is predated by two movies. “Judge Dredd” was released in June of 1995 and saw Sylvester Stallone starring as the Judge himself. He played alongside Armand Assante, Rob Schneider, Max Von Sydow and others. The next movie, “Dredd” came out in September of 2012 and featured Karl Urban in the role of Judge Dredd for this outing. He was paired with Olivia Thirlby as Anderson and Lena Heady as the villainous Ma-Ma, head of the drug-dealing Ma-Ma Clan.
Dredd himself first appeared in 1977 in the pages of 2000 A.D. He was created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra.
“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.” — Kingsley
EVERYTHING ‘BOUT THE COMIC CHARACTER HAS TO BE GOTTEN RIGHT THIS TIME, JUDGE DREDD HAD BETTER PUT ON THE REAL JUDGE DREDD BODY ARMOUR (VERY VERY VERY CLOSE TO THE COMIC BOOK ADAPTATION ‘COZ THAT’S THE SELLING POINT) THE 2012 BODY ARMOUR IS A MESS ‘COZ IT AINT GAT THE SHOULDER PLATES RIGHT-WHICH IS THE ESSENCE OF THE BODY ARMOUR (THANK GOD 1995 VERSION DID). ALSO THE LAW MASTER AS WELL AS THE LAW-GIVER OF THE 1995 IS BEST FOR JUDGE DREDD ‘COZ IT REALLY LOOKS MEGA URBAN.LETS UNDERSTAND SOMETHING; JUDGE DREDD IS ALWAYS FACING GUN SHOTS, FLYING BULLETS COZ HE DEALS WITH HOSTILE EVIRONMENTS AND CRIMINALS WHO SHOOT HARD AND IN A CARELESS AND IN AN UNTRAINED MANNER SO THEREFORE 1995 CROTCH PAD IS A WELCOME IDEA (I MEAN YOU CANNOT PROTECT/SHIELD ALL YOUR BODY AND LEAVE YOUR GENITALS UNPROTECTED/UNSHIELDED). THANKS FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY TO VOICE MY MIND ON WHAT JUDGE DREDD SHOULD LOOK LIKE
