First Footage Of New Judge Dredd Will Show At Kapow! Comic Con In April
When you consider that the project has been talked about for the past two years with very little headway, it's amazing how quickly things have come together for the Judge Dredd reboot. Based on script written by Alex Garland (28 Days Later), directed by Pete Travis and starring Karl Urban, the movie is now in production and apparently going well enough that they can start making promises.
Digital Spy has learned that producer Andrew Macdonald has plans to bring the first footage from the film, titled simply Dredd, to Mark Millar's Kapow! Comic Con in April. The event itself was only announced earlier this week and the thought is that the convention will be the UK equivalent of the San Diego Comic Con. Said Macdonald,
"It is fantastic to be involved with Kapow! and I'm really looking forward to talking to all the fans about our upcoming Dredd movie. I'll be on the 2000AD panel with a little taster of what people can look forward to from our 2012 release."
It's still hard to know what to expect from this movie. We all know that it can't be much worse than the Sylvester Stallone version from 1995 and Garland holding the pen is always good news, but the first image from the shoot that came online a few weeks ago does look a touch goofy (they really need to shrink that helmet). It's hard not to root for the project, though, so my fingers remain crossed that what they have to show in April will blow fans away.
