Judge Dredd has had a rough live action history. There was the bad Sylvester Stallone movie that was released in 1995. In 2012 there was a very good remake starring Karl Urban as Dredd. Unfortunately it did not do very well at the box office and plans for a sequel were scrapped.
However it appears that they are taking a shot at another live action version of the charachter, this time on TV. Judge Dredd: Mega City One is now in the works according to Entertainment Weekly.
The show will maintain the dark, gritty feel of Judge Dredd and the bleak future he lives in. It is going to be an ensemble drama about Dredd and other judges policing the tough streets of Mega City One. The show will also have a similar feel to the 2012 movie as some of that team is returning to help make this show.
There has not been any casting news as of yet, but they better try and get Karl Urban back as Judge Dredd!
