Judge Dredd

#1
For all you 2000AD fanatics, I heard last night that a new Dredd movie has been greenlit by DNA pictures, the company behind Last King of Scotland, 28 Weeks later and Sunshine.

I'm just hoping it sticks to the source material unlike that crapfest with Stallone

The Stallone Film is crap, but it did stick at least in part to the source material, just to flaming much of it, would have been better to film 'Origins' or some such (if it had been written then of course)

Any news on who plays Old Stone Face? I reckon Christian Bale would be good in the role. Do the same for Dredd as he did for his old sparring partner, Batman.

Whoever does it must play Dredd as he was always ment to be: the Hardest B@stard in Comics. During the Apocolypse War, Dredd wiped out East Meg 1, killing close to half a BILLION men, women and children. 8O

The Apoclypse War would make a good Dredd movie, as would Origins, which shows the rise of the Judges to control Mega City 1... 8)

Yeah, they've got the CGI now for Rouge Trooper; just look at Dr Manhattan in the new Watchmen film... 8)

Judge Dredd with a Zimmer frame?
The 2000AD Judge Dredd is just short of 70 at the moment.

Yes, but due to gene-therapy etc, Dredd is physically a man in(approx.)his late 40's - early 50's, with exceptional strength and stamina for a man of that age. 8)

Dredd himself does not know his exact age due to the cloning process, which accelerated his development as a child.

Given that Stallone was one of the inspirations for JD then he would be ideal to play him again - the first movie wasn't actually that bad, apart from a) the stupid comedy sidekick and b) Dredd TAKING HIS BLOODY HELMET OFF.... Sly's not that ancient - younger than Harrison Ford, who was OK in the last Indy film - and he keeps in pretty good shape. Just give him a pair of boots two sizes too small, that'd get him in the mood.

As for plot - what's the best, do you think? There are so many possibilities - Cursed Earth, Judge Child, Chopper, anything with Death, Orlok, or Anderson?

Meanwhile, I'm back on R&R in 3 weeks, and the second (or possibly third, after a nice cup of restirative tea/synthicaf) thing on my to-do list is sit with a great pile of 2000ADs, Megazines, Etc. Bliss :)

Could I suggest Jessica Biel ???
You certainly can! :drool:
doing what or who though.
The 2 Jessicas, Biel for Anderson, Alba for Hershey, Harrison Ford for Chief Judge and Michael Culkis (The Shield) for Dredd.
