Quick Post: DREDD To Start Shooting This Month

Variety reports that DREDD (aka JUDGE DREDD reboot) will start shooting November 12 in South Africa. Karl Urban stars in the titular role and Pete Travis directs.

Lionsgate has picked up the US distribution rights for the $45 million futuristic thriller after the movie sold very well for foreign rights at TIFF.

Here's the storyline:
DREDD takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot – if necessary. The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision of director Peter Travis bring DREDD to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip.

I am hoping for the movie that this character SHOULD have! So far, so good.
