Alex Garland’s Dredd might be one of the more upsetting Hollywood stories as it remains one of the better post-Dark Knight comic book movies but ultimately tanked at the box office throwing a cinematic sequel for the badass Judge Dredd adaptation into limbo.
2000 AD had instead moved towards a series title Mega-City One with Dredd star Karl Urban suggesting he’d be willing to return to the role, on the big or small screen. Urban is currently shooting another comic book series at the moment in Toronto with The Boys.
There is now an update on Mega-City One via THR, as there is now word a pilot script from Judge Dredd comic book writer Rob Williams in complete, along with a plot outline for the first two years of the series. It’s a good sign that things might be finally coming together.
Mega-City One currently doesn’t have a home but there was chatter a while back that they were courting places such as Amazon and Netflix.
