From the article, and all this talk of computer generated sets, and having seen a few bits and pieces of The Mandalorian, does this make it cheaper and more cost effective to make a show? Does that make it more likely that they could budget a pilot for selling to a Netflix, Amazon etc.?
That would certainly be a great way of making the show, but according to rumour The Mandalorian was about $15 million per episode! They used Unreal Engine I think for the virtual sets so maybe Rebellion's video game knowledge would be helpful here.
Jesus, $15 mil? That's hard to believe -- it looked good but not 15$ mil/episode good.

It looks like Karl Urban is still onboard for a Dredd return

That's good news, and it seems things are progressing towards a possible green light for shooting to begin. The film variety, I mean, rather than Dreddy Hi-Ex-ing everyone in sight! Will they have the Mean Machine as a comedy relief character or more of a returning threat to the street Judges of Mega-City One?

I hope they don't have Mean Machine until the second season, because he was in the 1995 film, and the tv series needs to be as different to that as possible.

Would be fantastic if they could get Karl Urban onboard for the series. As he says, there is so much good stuff they could mine from the comics, and there are countless possibilities with the technology we are seeing being created to bring some of the Mega-epics to life, on a smaller budget.

I want The Cursed Earth, shot entirely in a quarry in a Wales with model work for the Killdozer sequences using the original Matchbox toys.

I can actually imagine a Cursed Earth populated by Welsh people.

Obviously with a man just off camera throwing stones and rats at Karl.

Latest rumour: adaptation of pre-existing story from the comic (which would seem to fly in the face of the early concepts we were told about - but a lot can change in a year or two).

confirmed! (that it's a made-up rumour with no basis in reality)

It's a good lesson to remind onself that quite a lot of stuff on here and on YouTube is utter tripe and made up garbage. I know this because there's a series of rumours going around about one of the projects I'm producing, Judge Dredd: Mega City One and which story line we're using.

Who knows where this rumour has come from but it's utter boll*cks. I know this because I know what's in the script, (and no I'm not going to tell you what is), but it's not what they're saying, not even close, not even vaguely. Two facts, it's got Judge Dredd in and it's set in Mega City One.
