Check This Out: Early Futuristic Judge Dredd Concept Art
It's real! Back in December, just before the holidays, we ran an article about Judge Dredd coming back from the dead. Apparently DNA Films (the company behind Sunshine and 28 Weeks Later) has greenlit another Judge Dredd film that would be based on the 2000 AD comics and not a remake of Stallone's 1995 film. At the time, I had this feeling that it could've all been a bunch of BS. But apparently not! Our friends at io9 have got their hands on what is supposedly the first few concept art photos from the upcoming film. The art was drawn by 2000 AD artist Jock and show us what the new Judges and Mega-City look like.
Click on any of the photos below to see them in full-size over on io9.
I don't know, or care, enough about the Judge Dredd concept and its origin in the comics to really get excited about these. As great as they look, I'm also wondering how they're going to find the budget to pull off a world that looks like that. I have nothing against low budget sci-fi, but these photos are definitely not low budget. They also need to find the right director, which is the next bit of news I'll be waiting to hear. Our first article on this new Judge Dredd movie got quite an enthusiastic response in the comments, with a lot of people supporting Judge Dredd. Maybe this could turn out pretty awesome? What do you think?
