On Friday we reported the newest casting announcement for the reboot of Judge Dredd, with Olivia Thirlby announced to play the role of Judge Cassandra Anderson. The news came only a few weeks after Karl Urban was named as the actor in the title role and seemed to indicate that the film is being fast-tracked. Now there's even more evidence to support that theory.

IM Global, the production company behind the film, has posted an entry for the project on their website which not only reveals the title, simply Dredd, but also provides a fairly nondescript synopsis:

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.

While not jam-packed with information, the synopsis does give us the direction they are going with the film, which, it seems, is as far away from the Sylvester Stallone-version as possible. It's still unknown when the film is set to go into production or when a release date will be announced, but we'll be sure to let you know as soon as we find out.
