Cool anecdote!

Did Mel confirm whether he'd make an appearance in the new Max film?

If Urban does it well, then I say keep him in the role.

As to see Urban as seriously, here the clip of him in Riddick and Bourne Supremacy (sorry for music!)

Cheers for that!

How many sequels would you like to see Dredd run to? As many as Bat Man, or Star Trek. Myself I'd love a T.V. srerial Animated or otherwise.
coming at a cinema near you soon

Just to hark back to movies Dredd and 2000ad might have influenced for a second: Went to a screening of the Mad Max trilogy last night which had a Q & A with Mel Gibson and was nice to hear Dredd get a mention as an influence on the style of the movies.



It wore its influence  on its sleeve, or on its poster at least:

IF there will be sequels, it'll be 2, as these things go.. Then it'll be 5 years after the third one for another reboot..

I've always seen the influence in Mad Max, particularly the second one, myself. Just never heard it mentioned directly from anyone on the production. Good stuff.

It always seemed it was only the first Mad Max that carried the Dredd influences. The series became its own thing with the Road Warrior.

That is how Dredd should have looked, IMO.

He kinda does in the new film, there's a good balance berween the comic and bike gear. I think it's too austere for Dredd to be as stripped-down as that image though.

Plus it looks pretty much like Fargo's proto-judge look in Origins

Hey Joe dude, I read on this newly-fangled interweb contraption that there's only 113 visual effect shots in Dredd, and not the 800 previously reported (the 800 shots mentioned are the stereoscopic 3-D shots), and that the work on the effects wrapped in October, you seem to be clued in to what's going on with Dredd, is this true, and do you have any related links for it...?

Yes it's true, at least in the context of work performed by someone who worked on the film last year:

Shahid Malik

FX Supervisor on Dredd
Prime Focus Film
Public Company; 1001-5000 employees; PFOCUS; Entertainment industry
February 2011 – October 2011 (9 months) London, United Kingdom

Created and/or specified all the 113 FX shots on Judge Dredd feature film reboot. Managed a total team of 10 FX artists.



http://uk.linkedin.com/pub/shahid-malik/22/b5/807



I don't see anything to be concerned about though, there were around 200 FX shots in the '95 Dredd which is a bigger film with more varied locations. The new Dredd was a fairly practical shoot -in one location- that doesn't use CGI as a visual crutch. I expect the CGI will be mostly backgrounds/exteriors of the city/blocks and specific incidents within the city-block itself, nothing huge. Don't forget the work of the talented cinematographer Anthiny Dod Mantle who will add so much to how it will look.

There are also other companies besides Prime Focus that are handling FX shots such as Base Black and the Mill. Whether their work is included in this count is unknown.

Remember there's no contextual confirmation on any of these numbers. The average modern film can have around 2000-5000 cuts these days so there could well be 800 FX shots in Dredd but it depends on the nature of the FX and whether any 3D conversion for certain shots is included in that number.

Yeah that would sound about right, if we're lucky. I know from 1995 to the present day seems a long while to wait though.
