Looks like Sylvester Stallone’s comeback may be even more influential than we originally thought. Could the success of Rocky Balboa and Rambo actually be responsible for the rise of a new Judge Dredd movie? Nah, let’s not get too carried away here! Still, according to Ain’t It Cool News, UK production company DNA Films (28 Days Later, Sunshine) are working with 2000 AD to bring a new version of Judge Dredd to the big screen. Stallone’s involvement seems highly unlikely, but has yet to be denied thus far.
Jason Kingsley, CEO and Creative Director, had this to say: “We can’t give away too many details at this point, but we’re looking forward to working with DNA Films to bring Judge Dredd back to the big screen.” Well, with all the other comic book franchise reboots going around Hollywood these days, this kind of makes sense. Despite the fact that the original flick bombed, I’d love to see another take on the dystopian future of Mega-City One. With a decent script and a talented director on board, this could definitely be something to look forward to. Would you see a new Judge Dredd movie? Should they get Stallone to reprise his role?
