: Latest Dredd TV news

This is the bit that really interested me:
Judge Dredd: Mega City One doesn't currently have a network attached, but the project is being developed by IM Global and Rebellion. It is also said that the show will center around a group of Judges, as opposed to just Judge Dredd, so that could help alleviate the workload and make Karl Urban's involvement a more real possibility. The good news is, at least for now, it is on the table.

This would be perfect in my oppinion.
1) We get Karl Urban as Dredd (a must in my book).
2) We also get a show that has episodes about other judges - this allows the TV show to better deal with the pro's and con's of being a judge. Not every judge is a 'super-cop' like Dredd and their weaknesses will better add to the character of Dredd when he is in the episode.

A great Win-Win approach if the team can get it.

Thank you, yes I am keeping an eye on that thread also, but new news is lost in there. So just wanted to post the latest updates I find on the web, that are not clearly seen here.
Maybe we could have a restricted post with links to news and no discussions in the same thread.

As things progress it would be great to be able to go to the thread and see what is happening.

Have to say the ongoing thread has (understandably) turned into a behemoth and getting news from it as opposed to discussion about whether Walter should have JarJar ears in the show, provided its based on his appearance in The Pit and reuses the helmet from '95 and should pads from '12 is tricky...

... mind if I just got off my arse and listened to the podcast already this wouldn't be a problem right now!

Netflix, apparently (https://www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle/esmagazine/jason-kingsley-rebellion-games-interview-a4089466.html).


If one of his horses is called Warlord, what are the others called?  Battle, Action, Tiger?

It's asserted as fact in passing, but there's no direct quote and I can't find any official announcement on this. It's been asserted as fact repeatedly, for example, from this headline (https://www.digitalspy.com/tv/a837878/judge-dredd-tv-mega-city-one-karl-urban-plot-netflix-release-date/) you'd think it was a done deal, but buried at the end of the article is an admission that the writer knows no such thing. Until I see a Netflix/Rebellion press release, I'd take that with a very large pinch of salt.

Although Netflix are making Wagner & Ranson's creator owned Button Man, apparently.

That is Ace news. L.A Confidential was a fantastic Movie so to have its screenwriter interested in a 2000AD property is about as good as it gets.

That's great great news, that'll be excellent. More Wagner adaptations please, thank you.

Wow! It's amazing nobody did it before now, though. I mean, they did The Bogie Man and they haven't done Button Man... The mind boggles.

(I bet they make Harry a yank.)

Some people would argue that they haven't done The Bogie Man (in the same way that they hadn't done Judge Dredd prior to 2012).

What happened to that 'mega city one update - it's bad news' thread from earlier today then? was it scuttlebutt?

Better to keep all posts regarding JD: MC1 in one thread, I'd have thought.
