’28 Days’ Writer to Script ‘Judge Dredd’ Remake


Well played, Danny Boyle.

According to a twitter post from comic artist Jock that was scooped up by MTV Splash Page with almost zero context, Alex Garland is going to be writing the new Judge Dredd that for some reasons is being made during our lifetime. Garland wrote both 28 Days Later and Sunshine while Boyle directed, so the pairing seems perfectly natural.

It also seems awesome.

I realize that I was aghast at the idea of a remake when it was first announced, but I did note the silver lining of a production company that understands science fiction working on it. Now, with Garland, it seems like things are falling into place a bit better now that they’ve added a screenwriter that knows what he’s doing.

Could we actually be seeing a true-to-form adaptation of a great science fiction comic?

Stay tuned for when they announce Sylvester Stallone as the lead.

What? He’ll be hot off of the fame he’s getting from The Expendables.
