Urban's name has cropped up a few times in the mill so I'd treat that as a recycled rumour....however I like the idea so if any truth in it then he's not a bad choice at all.

Yeah Pete Travis is directing. I was about to post the same thing about Duncan Jones. That could have been cool.

Actually a small part of me thinks it's going to get binned before cameras roll. Not sure why, just have a feeling that it's going to fall apart.

This entire movie screams "B Movie Madness!!!!"
This could come and pass me by and I'll never notice it. There are just some movies that don't excite me and this is one of them. The makers that be will ruin all hopes and as a last ditch to make any cash, will quickly churn out dvds 2wks after the theatrical release.
If it's never made, consider it a blessing and a mercy kill. Some things should have never been, ala Lindsey Lohan (without her rack, her rack is fine lol).

Apparently it's a bland script, the whole action takes place in one setting, ie one block, to keep the budget down.

Hey, it worked for Reservoir Dogs & Phonebooth. What's to say it won't work for this?

I kid, it'll make the Stallone version look good.

It worked for District 9 and since they've aquired the same crew I assume that's what they're going for. I read the first 10 pages of the script and pretty much loved it. I refuse to read anymore simply because I don't want to spoil myself.

And am I the only person here that actually likes the idea of a Die Hard meets Blade Runner type film!?

I also like the idea!

Where has everyone got hold of the script?  I have searched but no luck, help?!

There's been no confirmation that the script was actually the script - it may have been an early draft or a complete fake.  Until we see the movie itself, or someone 'official' confirms it, there's no way to tell until we see the finished product.  One guy popped up with it out of nowhere, pushed it on every major (and probably minor) site on the internet (with no previous posts on any of them on which to judge his trustworthiness or otherwise), slagged it off  for being "Dredd Hard" (because it mostly takes place in a tower block) and people seem to have taken it at face value.

I recommend a pinch of salt, healthy dose of, and an open mind until we can judge for ourselves.

I like Urban in the role, still not sure how the concept will work out - it sounds quite a different approach for a Dredd film but smacks of budget slashing so its down to Travis and his team to paper over that and deliver something cool.

However I'm going out on a limb now - please no D9 docu feel or Bourne style shaky cam action: I'm sick of both in action films now. If Die Hard's a model for this new Dredd film then take notes and shoot/edit it old school so we can see what the hell is going on. I enjoyed The A-Team recently but got pissed off very quickly with the shaky cam action and it actually detracted from a lot of the action for me.

If it is remade like a comic book, I'm thinking Tank Girl and the original Punisher it could be quite good. Aside from Stallone wearing the outfit I didn't relate it to 2000AD.

This is looking good.Urban is a great actor and they say hes not going to take his helmet off.Hes capable of playing a hard bastard(see The Bourne Supremacy).The promise of hard R violence and the fact they are forgetting that Stallone film ever existed.

I'm all for a more character driven take on the Dredd mythos so the low budget doesn't bother me, but the choice of director doesn't bode well plus the fact some have been v critical of the script. Fingers crossed.

One person has been very critical - dreddhead123. The same person who 'discovered' the alleged script and spammed it all over the internet (there's been no confirmation or denial about its authenticity from anyone involved and it wasn't pulled down, so make up your own mind...).

Regardless, others who read it said it wasn't bad at all and Wagner himself seems happy with the actual script (happier than he was with the original anyway ) and is still quite involved with the project, so again, make up your own mind. I haven't read it so can't comment either way.

Will keep an open mind until there's something concrete to judge it by.

whether its good or bad, it will still shit all over the Stallone version... and if it doesn't, everybody involved should be banned from ever making another film ever again!

While it's not normally my thing, I'll admit I would still get down to some serious girl on girl action with Diane Lane from the Stallone movie.

Well....that kind of came out of nowhere.

Um, anyway - I was thinking about the Stallone attempt and it got me thinking....how the hell did we not get a Paul Verhoeven version in the 90s? It was pre-Showgirls so he still had the goods after massive hits like Total Recall and Basic Instinct and it seems to me like perfect fit of material and filmmaker.

The comic stories celebrated ultra-violence in a sci-fi setting which alternated between epic and intimate while also taking sly satirical jabs at contemporary society, using outlandish sci-fi stories to take the piss out of 20th century politics and social trends. Robocop and Total Recall share a lot of those same points and the later Starship Troopers did too so it's not like Paul totally turned his back on his early US hits. Ah well, the Dredd that could have been eh?

Plus Conni with Verhoeven at the helm you may well have had some Diane Lane girl-on-girl scenes

Don't like the name change. Seems totally unnecessary. If 2000AD can have JUDGE DREDD strips for 33 years, I think a new film should have the common decency and respect to use the same full name! Sigh. The whole thing stinks of arrogant cluelessness.

"Oh let's change the name!"

Whatever.

WRONG!!!!!!!!!

What can you tell us about the new Dredd movie in the works? Have you been involved on any level?

John Wagner's reply:

Ive been a kind of advisor/consultant since fairly early on. The script, I believe, has been posted on the web so anyone is free to look it up and judge for themselves, though personally, had I not read it already, Id prefer to wait and let the finished movie come as a complete surprise.

http://geeksyndicate.wordpress.com/2010/09/03/2000ad-1700-interview-7--john-wagner/



So there! It was the REAL screenplay leaked (be it an early or later draft). You were convinced it was a fake screenplay. It's not. I sure proved you wrong, KeithM!

Dreddhead123 is happy to gloat.
