Shame this film never happened. :(


I tried searching but couldn’t see it. He shared it on Twitter for DayofDredd, I am probably so late to the party on this but it’s the first time I am seeing it.

Film & TV / Re: Judge Dredd: Mega-City One - TV show announced!
« on: 13 August, 2019, 12:22:48 pm »
There are reports that Deadpool might be repackaged to appeal to the PG13 market. Disney wants family-friendly fare rather than Adult material to sell to the masses. Rebellion is not Disney, but you could see the possible insistence amongst some investors to 'lighten' the tone of Judge Dredd. Tough call, money if you make your product more appealing. However, Garth Ennis's 'The Boys,' now considered a success must prove there's a market for more Adult orientated material. Megacity One strikes me as an almost perfect reflection of current-day America, where Security fears dominate all thinking. That might prove to be both any programmes appeal and its problem. The 'good guys' wear black, shoot to kill and defend a society where an elite have banned Democratic accountability. That might prove disagreeable in the long run, but maybe like GoT they can show that most stories have more than one side to them. The extremism of the Judges came about by Democracy's failure, and like any system, the Justice Department is subject to change and reform.   


Preacher too, although on it’s last season the whole thing was quite loaded with Adult content for sure.

From humperdoo to Arseface, all the gore, drug use, Violence, offensive imagery etc.

It wasn’t mr H reviews neither the one I mentioned upthere ^ sorry folks, I got my wires crossed, still there is someone with a high subs count, posting a load of nonsense, panicking his audience & casual passby viewers with a lot of stuff like “Oh no the script is rewritten, this is bad news” etc like I said I tuned out when I got to that part and came here to check the boards knowing it was full of crap, since even major Hollywood blockbusters have script revisions etc

Jason Kingsley confirmed to him that 'things' (presumably the screenplay, maybe also the series outline) have been 'completely rewritten' since last year's announcement.
Which, in case anyone starts freaking out, is also extremely standard when it comes to new shows and pilots. What you see in the screen often ends up barely resembling the original pilot script.

Some YouTuber has already done that & started panicking the casual audience of about 20K people already  ::) & apparently according to the comments the YouTube video they have been informed the show is going to be woke & appeasing to the sjw crowd & people arguing over it in his comments  (I didn’t watch all his video as soon as he started his panicking out over the script Photo I stopped watching)

There's a Youtube video doing the rounds which claims a 'MASSIVE UPDATE' on the show.

Needless to say, it's nothing of the kind, just a regurgitation of the facts and passing off observations the guy's read by Steve and Joe (here or on social media) as his own deductive reasoning.

Which is shameful shit, especially as he does have something like one piece of genuine news - Jason Kingsley confirmed to him that 'things' (presumably the screenplay, maybe also the series outline) have been 'completely rewritten' since last year's announcement.

That's it. Now go ahead and post the video anyway, because you never bother to read the thread.

Seen that piece of trash video if it’s the one i’m Thinking off, I refuse to repost it to give it clicks, since it talks a load of rubbish & at 20k views giving misinformation to the general casual audience doesn’t help their perception of how things are shaping up, infact any negative press like that likely informs the casual viewer to stay the hell away from it until they catch it many years later on dvd or if tv picks it up when it is finished & then moan about it being cancelled & how they wish they saw it at the start  :|

Much like the 2012 film really (just the people who say they wish they saw that film in the cinema)

Casual audiences tend to believe these rubbish Youtubers for some reason, I admit I had been worried myself but when you look into things properly you understand the situations better & also I am not a YouTuber who misinformed a Large audience though neither.

General / Re: When did 2000ad get good again.

Ahh cool did not see this thread.

Can’t believe I didn’t just look at the board properly.

I know there was a period in the 90’s that isn’t fondly remembered by some as a good time for 2000ad.

although that’s when I got into it myself 13yrs old in 1995 after the movie - for about 2 years I think, I cannot even remember the last story I read, I just stopped buying 2000ad & the Megazine one day in about 1997 although I feel like I remember thinking some of it was underwhelming. I actually stopped because I was about to start my final year of school with my GCSE’s & also I got into other hobbies.


What was the turnaround point for you? I’d love to know more about that era, like why did you stay with it all the way through, did you not mind it, but felt it could’ve been better?

Was it one specific prog where it felt like a fresh start?

What was the first big story then after that turnaround point that you knew Dredd & 2000ad was back on course to being the best again.

Is there a general consensus on what was considered the turning point or is it different for everyone?

General / Re: Wondering about the Dredd TV series

Fingers crossed for anything on Dredd day/month in Sept.

A cast announcement even if it’s just one actor, or more concept art or news if it’s going into preproduction in 2020, anything at all really.

Difference was when 2012 Dredd was released they were hoping enough time had passed for people, the general public had enough time to forget Sylvester “Removes his Helmet” Stallone.

This time around it will be not far from Ten years away by the time everything is done and on our TV screens but NO ONE wants to forget about Karl “Dredd” Urban. They should really strike while the Iron is hot that’s why it’s a shame it’s not on our screens already, whilst you have the public interest and while it’s still in their minds fresh that’s when you should capitalise on getting the next thing going, it’s only a shame the distance between wanting a sequel & not getting it & thinking about a TV show took so long.

My biggest Fear is what if by the time the TV show is aired no one cares enough even if it’s really good cos they are too busy with Disney plus with all their Star Wars and Marvel Shows Etc? to add yet another Comic book show into their lives? So 3 seasons & then it’s cancelled 😑

But at the same time we don’t want it rushed and it turns into a disaster.

Thinking of Blade Runner - another Classic that built up a huge Cult following on home release, so when the Sequel came out I expected it to do gang busters at the box office, it did not.

Suggestions / Re: #2 A Netflix style way to read old progs
« on: 01 May, 2019, 11:09:48 pm »
That said, how much is a digital sub, and what would be viable for a Rebellion service? If you’re already paying £10 for PDFs, would you pay the same for a Netflix-style sub (which removes ‘ownership’ but would give you current issues, back issues, and possibly also Treasury content)?

Throw in the Rebellion TV shows in the future & rebellion games, any novel published Dredd or non - dredd & 2000ad, any audiobooks they have as well.

Close to what Disney already offer in the UK Digital service i.e not that much really, especially as they are limited with the tv shows, always a season or 2 behind since they allow sky the rights. They charge £4.99 per month

but disney plus is going to be 10 to a 100 times bigger probably.

Great news, cannot wait to see what comes feom this in the future

Also there are some massive 3rd party film and TV companies I can see wanting to borrow the space for filming in the future such as Star Wars, Dr Who, anything Marvel and non Sci-Fi too

It’s also available on steam to buy if you just want the game for just over a fiver

Games / Retro Dredd game from 1995 coming to steam this year
« on: 13 May, 2018, 03:08:59 pm »
Suprised there is no thread for this yet, anyone else see it in this weeks thrill mail?






Used to own that on the Megadrive all those years ago, should be good for a laugh, I never did complete it.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/690250/Judge_Dredd_95/


Also I would totally buy it if they released it on the Switch, just saying.

13
Ahh great suggestions guys and thank you

Also just in time for that sale too off to get me some lenny zero etc

14
If you haven't already read them, I think you'd really dig the Dreddworld spin-offs Simping Detective, Lenny Zero and Low Life - all extremely 'Noir', for the most part... The likes of Marauder and Bato Loco also have a great line in 'seedy underbelly' type stuff.

Thanks added to wishlist

On a bit of a Cyberpunk kick at the moment (this year we had gits live action, bladerunner 2049, Blame! Was On netflix, battle angel alita live action movie is coming soon, Deus Ex Mankind divided was recent as well as ruiner game and still awaiting Cyberpunk 2077 from cdpr in the near future! Etc)

I know all of Judge Dredd is Cyberpunk/Dystopian

But what are the stories that most resemble something out of Bladerunner or that futuristic Neo Noire type setting or stuff related to the above to read?

Technically it could be all of it, but if you had to pick a few to read.
