"Judge Dredd" (1995) ist die Verfilmung der gleichnamigen Comic-Serie...
Man schreibt das dritte Jahrtausend. Nukleare Kriege und ökologische Katastrophen haben die Erde verwüstet. Staaten existieren nicht mehr. Übriggeblieben von der menschlichen Zivilisation sind drei Weltstädte: Megacity I, II und III. Zerstörung, Korruption sind an der Tagesordnung. Und dennoch ist diese Vorhölle besser, als die "Verfluchte Zone", die verwüstete Welt außerhalb der Megacities. Dorthin verbannt zu werden, ist schlimmer als der Tod. Aus dem Chaos hat sich ein neues, radikales Rechtssystem erhoben, das System der Judges. Sie sind Polizisten, Richter und Vollstrecker zugleich. Judge Dredd (Sylvester Stallone, u.a. "Rocky", "Rambo") ist eine lebende Legende in Megacity I. Er ist die Verkörperung der neuen Justiz. JUDGE DREDD IST DAS GESETZ !!!!!!!
Am 15. November 2012 kommt die "Judge Dredd"-Neuverfilmung "DREDD" in 3D - mit Karl Urban (u.a. "Herr der Ringe", "Priest") in der Titelrolle - in die deutschen Kinos...

Hero Complex sprach mit dem "Judge Dredd"-Schöpfer John Wagner...
GB: [...] How do you view the 1995 Sly Stallone film these days? And is that view any different than it was at the time of its release?
JW: My views haven’t changed, though apart from my initial viewing I haven’t seen the film since it came out. They told the wrong story - it didn’t have that much to do with Dredd the character as we know him. I don’t think Stallone was a bad Dredd, though it would have been better and lent him more cred if he hadn’t revealed his face. He was just Dredd in the wrong story. I envy their budget, though. Some of the CGI was very good, and the re-creations of the Angel Gang and the robot. The robot actually came from a Pat Mills story and didn’t belong in Dredd, but it looked good. If the plot had revolved around characters like them the film would have been more successful. [...]
GB: The new film looks like a very different beast than the 1995 one - no Rob Schneider appearance this time around. Tell us three specific things about the project that make you optimistic.
JW: The plot is about Dredd and his world. It’s impossible to cover every aspect of the character and his city - perhaps that was one of the failings of the first film; they tried to do too much and ended up with not a lot. "Dredd" homes in on the essential job of judging - instant justice in a violent future city. I like the actors, they’re well cast and they handled their parts well. Olivia Thirlby is perfect as Anderson, the young psi judge. She gives the character a touching vulnerability. Karl Urban will not remove his helmet and will not kiss his costar. [...]
On Friday, some potentially troublesome word broke through The LA Times that suggested that Dredd director Pete Travis was no longer involved in the film and that writer/producer Alex Garland had stepped in as his post-production replacement. Today, an official update has been issued from both Travis and Garland that reads as follows:
"During all stages of the filmmaking, 'Dredd' has been a collaboration between a number of dedicated creative parties. From the outset we decided on an unorthodox collaboration to make the film. This situation has been misinterpreted. To set the record straight, Pete was not fired and remains a central part of the collaboration, and Alex is not seeking a co-director credit. We are all extremely proud of the film we have made, and respectfully suggest that it is judged on viewing when its released next year." [...]
Dredd is still planned for release in 2D and 3D on September 21, 2012.

It's not often that a director of a major action film is asked to step aside as the movie enters its postproduction phase. But that's what has happened with director Pete Travis and "Dredd," the remake of the 1995 Sylvester Stallone vehicle "Judge Dredd," casting a pall over the anticipated reboot.
Although he completed shooting the picture earlier this year, Travis has not been involved in the current editing phase of the movie, after creative disagreements with producers and executives in charge of the film reached a boiling point, said three people with knowledge of the production who asked not to be identified because they were not authorized to speak about the situation publicly. Instead, the editing room is now being run by a writer-producer on the film, the screenwriter Alex Garland, the people said.
In fact, so involved are Garland and two other producers, Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich, that Garland may seek a co-director credit on the movie. Although he's made no decision on whether he'll seek that credit -- a petition would need to be filed with the Directors Guild of Great Britain -- the fact that the possibility is even being considered is unusual. Garland is a novelist and screenwriter who did not shoot the movie and has never been credited with directing a picture before. Representatives for Garland and Travis did not respond to a request for comment.
There also still exists the possibility of reshoots, two of the people familiar with the film said, although who would man the camera in that scenario is an open question. The movie is set to come out next September.
Although the specifics of the disagreement that led to Travis' dismissal are up for debate, two sources said it arose when Travis and producers and executives in charge of the production did not see eye-to-eye on footage Travis was delivering. A separate person involved in the film maintained that although Travis is no longer involved in postproduction, he is keeping up with progress via the Internet and has not been pushed aside.
It's odd but not unheard of for major Hollywood producers to look elsewhere for editing help after a director has finished shooting a movie. It happened, for instance, with last year's "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time," as Hollywood uber-producer Jerry Bruckheimer sought a longtime Steven Spielberg veteran to work on the film and kept director Mike Newell out of the editing room for weeks.
But it's rarer for a situation to evolve to a point where a new co-director is named. The sources said a decision will be made on whether Garland will seek directing credit as the film gets closer to completion.
"Dredd" is being financed by the India-based giant Reliance Entertainment, and overseen by its foreign-sales subsidiary IM Global. It will be released in the U.S. by Lionsgate, which has also been involved in the production and postproduction phases. Spokeswomen for Lionsgate and IM Global did not respond to a request for comment.
When it first went into the pipeline, "Dredd" held plenty of promise. Although the original was considered a commercial disappointment, the new movie, based on a popular comic book and loosely remade from the prior film, featured a hot young cast led by Karl Urban, fresh off a turn as Bones in J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek" reboot. Travis was coming off a mid-budget hit in "Vantage Point," meanwhile, and the new "Dredd" film was to be scripted by Garland, a well-respected writer who had movies like "28 Days Later" under his belt.
The remake, about all-powerful "judges" who rule an uninhabitable Earth, also played off an interest in dystopian material that was being led by the hot genre property "The Hunger Games."
Movies can rebound from the stigma that comes with editing-room drama. But it's a mixed bag: Reported tension with director Stephen Sommers on "G.I. Joe.: The Rise of Cobra" in 2009 didn't stop the film from succeeding at the box office. But "Persia" disappointed when it was released in 2010.
It was first reported by JudgeDreddMovieNews.com, and later confirmed by The Playlist, that Lena Headey has been cast as the main villain and gang leader, Madeline Madrigal (AKA "Ma-Ma") in Dredd.
Headey ("Game of Thrones," "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles," 300) joins Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby in the Pete Travis-directed movie, written by Alex Garland and currently filming in South Africa. [...]

Lionsgate have roared and they have overcome, after negotiating a deal with IM Global to land the domestic distribution rights for DREDD, according to Variety.
DREDD is the 3D adaptation of - yep, you guessed it - the JUDGE DREDD comic book series, which Sly Stallone famously took on back in 1995. This time around, Karl Urban (you may know him as Bones from the new STAR TREK) will take on the title role, and Olivia Thirlby (Ellen Page‘s sardonic friend in JUNO) as his trainee/love interest. The $45 million movie is being directed by Pete Travis, with a script written by novelist Alex Garland (THE BEACH). [...]
Bei IM GLOBAL gibt es folgende Synopsis zur Neuverfilmung...
DREDD takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot - if necessary. The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision of director Peter Travis bring DREDD to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra's revered comic strip.
Olivia Thirlby has joined the cast of Judge Dredd, reports Variety.
Thirlby will play Judge Cassandra Anderson, a psychically powered rookie Judge who teams with Judge Joe Dredd (Karl Urban) for training. Set in a dystopian future, the British comic book adaptation focuses on a police force given the power to act as judge, jury and executioner to whomsoever they perceive to be part of the criminal element.
In the 2000 A.D. comic book series (within which Judge Dredd is a recurring story), Anderson goes on to lead the city's Psi Division, maintaining an uneasy friendship with Dredd.
Judge Dredd will be directed by Pete Travis with a script by Alex Garland. It was previously adapted into a film in 1995 with Sylvester Stallone in the lead. The character of Judge Anderson did not appear in that iteration of that franchise.
Karl Urban has been confirmed for the leading role in Judge Dredd by producers Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich of the new film. Urban had been rumoured for the role already, but in a Movie-Con Q&A this evening the pair confirmed that he has been cast for the film, shooting in South Africa soon.
"The main thing about Dredd is that it’s a fantastic comic that was completely messed up 20 years ago," said Macdonald. "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 has a couple of ideas for other stories as well. It’s not based on any one comic, and John Wagner is involved in every decision." [...]
Mike Fleming schreibt für Deadline.com...
[...] Andrew Macdonald’s DNA Films has made a deal with India-based Reliance Big Entertainment and IM Global to finance Judge Dredd, a 3D film that was scripted by Alex Garland, and will be directed by Pete Travis, best known for Vantage Point and Omagh. The film will be shopped at the festival by IM Global, in the first collaboration since Reliance bought a majority stake in Stuart Ford's foreign sales company. While Judge Dredd is perhaps best remembered for the forgettable 1995 action film that starred Sylvester Stallone, Macdonald went back to the franchise’s DNA to completely overhaul the film and bring it back to its origins as the UK comic created by John Wagner and illustrated by Carlos Ezquerra. Dredd is set in a futuristic world filled with violence, and the character is empowered to act as judge, jury and executioner. Garland's best known for writing the novel The Beach, and scripting the Danny Boyle-directed scifi film Sunshine and 28 Days Later. He also wrote the script for a movie version of the Microsoft game Halo that was scrapped by Universal and Fox. The budget's under $50 million, I'm told. This is the kind of project that you would normally find at a studio. This one looked like it would be done under DNA's deal at Fox, but that deal's going away, and Fox let this one loose.

[...] Way back in 2001, Rebellion announced plans for new back-to-back JUDGE DREDD flicks, one involving corruption in Mega City One's legal system and the other pitting Dredd against the notorious supernatural Judge Death. Then in 2004, a new production company reported they were scrapping previous scripts and starting from scratch. Only Psi Division knows if it'll actually happen this time.
