Judge Dredd better not offend cinema again

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Tuesday, May 11, 2010

The British comic book anti-hero Judge Dredd has already had one chance to be a movie star and the results were less than stellar. Back in 1995 Sylvester Stallone played the futuristic law enforcement officer of Mega City One, and while the film wasn't a critical, commercial or fanboy hit, in today's epoch where remakes are coming fast and furious, even Judge Dredd is getting a second chance to be a movie franchise.

Longtime Danny Boyle producing partner Andrew Macdonald has hooked up with screenwriter Alex Garland (The Beach, 28 Days Later) on this new Judge Dredd movie, which is said to go back to the elements of the original 2000 A.D. comic book and present him as more of a bad-ass than Stallone's version. Created by writer John Wagner and illustrated by Carlos Ezquerra, the Judge dispenses terminal justice to the law-breaking citizens of his town, instilling obedience through fear. A lot of the commentary on Mega City One's excessive society found its way into the sarcastic worldview of RoboCop, but since that film is also getting remade, no one is going to remember if the new Judge Dredd project feels (or even looks a bit) like RoboCop anyway.

Pete Travis (Vantage Point) is attached to direct this new Dredd film. Macdonald's just worked out a deal with Reliance Big Entertainment, the Indian film company with deep pockets, but the budget for the movie is rumored to be no more than $50 million. So far no star has been found to wear the big shiny boots of Dredd.

-Deadline.

They need to NOT get a star for the boots. I think that was the first and biggest of several mistakes in the first one. You can't put someone like Stallone in a film and expect him to have his face covered the whole time. So, instead, you violate the way the character works and have him unhelmeted.

No, get a strong up-an-comer, or even a Hugo Weaving (V for Vendetta, anyone?) to keep the helmet on for all 2 hours (or whatever)

Rob Schneider killed this movie dead... also one burning question if Judge Dredd and Judge Rico were brothers (or clones) why have Armand Assante play his clone brother? Why not have ONE actor in a duel role?

I did not think Stallone did a horrible job as Judge Dredd but he quickly removed his helmet, then shoulder pads, then the belt, the gun then the uniform was stripped away from him then he was no more than a common a prisoner... AKA no more "Judge" in Judge Dredd! in truth, I think he was only a Judge for the first and last 15 minutes of the flick, the rest of the time he was an inmate... Ironically Demolition Man was closer to the true source material than Judge Dreddwas.
