Alex Garland Writing Judge Dredd Script
Posted 09.10.09 by Ryan
If you think the new Judge Dredd will be anything like the Sylvester Stallone movie from 1995, think again. Danny Boyle's DNA Films is producing the movie. And while Boyle won't be directing, Alex Garland, the screenwriter for Boyle's Sunshine and 28 Days Later, is writing the script.
Comic book artist Andrew "Jock" Simpson, who worked on Dredd comic strips in the UK and has been creating script visuals for the movie, confirmed the news on his Twitter page:
Working through script visuals for Judge Dredd movie. Alex Garland writes a great script.
No production details are currently known, but with DNA putting Garland on scripting duties, it looks like Dredd is a project they are taking seriously.
