Judge Dredd is the titular character of the comic books of the same name. In brief, the comic books are set in a future Earth that has seen serious international conflict, with the result that most of the population has become concentrated in a number of huge conurbations called mega-cities because much of the rest of the planet remains radioactive. Furthermore, order is maintained in the mega-cities by judges, who possess the power to convict, sentence, and execute criminals on the spot. As a result, it should come as no surprise to learn that Judge Dredd is often used as

Hungry for more Judge Dredd? As we've previously reported, a live-action Judge Dredd television show is on the way, titled Judge Dredd: Mega-City One. It is planned as an ensemble drama following a team of Judges, including Dredd. Initially, it was thought the project was another reboot, or "soft reboot," following the lackluster box office of 2012's Dredd starring Karl Urban as the title Judge, but with the revelation just this week that Karl Urban is currently in talks to appear in Mega-City One, it looks like we may be returning to the world of Dredd as established in 2012.
Well, now we have our first look at the current vision for that world, and though it isn't a perfect match for what we were given in 2012, it's pretty damn close. Think Dredd, only a little bit even more like Blade Runner, as though Dredd's world has less neon »

Im Global and independent U.K. games developer and publisher Rebellion are currently developing “Judge Dredd: Mega-City One,“ a live action TV series that should make up for the fact that we’re probably never getting a sequel to the kickass 2012 film. Karl Urban may even have a role in the series! It’ll likely be a […] »

When Im Global and Rebellion announced they were developing a Judge Dredd: Mega-City One series, it was met with a lot of excitement from fans, especially at the prospect of Dredd star Karl Urban returning to the title role. While it is still looking for a network, Judge Dredd: Mega-City One is in active development and has been for quite a while – as revealed in concept art for the series from IGN from Jack Eaves.
The first piece of concept art is titled ‘Democracy March’, offering a look at the advanced and very packed skyline of Mega-City One, complete with the Statue of Liberty in the background. This may be a reference to ‘America’, one of Dredd’s most important and fan-favourite storylines.
The next piece of concept art is titled ‘Lowlife Arrival’ and sees the Judges patrolling the lowest levels of Mega-City One. This could again be »

One of the biggest criticisms with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was that the film was simply too dark. The latest DC project, Justice League, recently headed into what fans hope are the last reshoots and final adjustments. Actor Joe Morton, who plays Cyborg’s father in the film, spoke with IGN on the nature of the reshoots.
"Well, the stuff that I had to do were just really small little bits and pieces, nothing necessarily having to do with tone. I know that with Ray [Fisher], the young man who plays Victor, there were some adjustments that they made in terms of the tone of that character. I think what I heard was that there was a need from the studio to lighten up the film in a way, that the film felt too dark. I don't know what that meant in terms of how it actually got translated »

Marvel at the wider world of Mega-City One.
IGN has today premiered the first concept art for Judge Dredd: Mega-City One, Im Global and Rebellion’s long-brewing revival that’s poised to bring John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s square-jawed law enforcer to the small screen. And though the end product may be a full two years away, Mega-City One has been coming on in leaps and bounds.
Case in point: Series producer Brian Jenkins recently announced that Karl Urban has come into contention to once again don the mantle of judge, jury, and executioner. Negotiations are said to be ongoing, but it’s clear that both parties are keen to turn that long-requested dream into a reality.
Story-wise, there are precious few details currently available for Judge Dredd: Mega-City One, but this first-look concept art does present a faithful rendition of Wagner and Ezquerra’s dystopian universe, »

A Hellish Universe
This should come as no surprise, but there are hopes that Neil Marshall’s big screen reboot of Hellboy could spawn a cinematic universe. “It’s a very loose adaptation of one of the Hellboy graphic novels,” he told The Verge. “When you have more books out there, you have a lot more to sift through. You can look around at how big the world is, and borrow pieces from here and there. You want to sell a larger world, but you have to pick and choose what goes in there. The challenge for us has been to not lose sight of the specific story, but suggest the elements of a larger story. My hope is that this introduces a lot of stuff that then expands into a Hellboy Cinematic Universe.” Read more here.

Jason Kingsley, executive producer on the upcoming TV revival Judge Dredd: Mega-City One, has reaffirmed that negotiations with Karl Urban, who donned that iconic helmet for Pete Travis’ 2012 reboot, are indeed underway.
Word of Urban possibly reprising the role of judge, jury, and executioner first surfaced online just yesterday, when the actor himself told those in attendance at last weekend’s Star Trek Las Vegas Convention that he would “love” to suit up as Mega-City One’s no-nonsense law enforcer.
And though the casting of Karl Urban would certainly fire Judge Dredd: Mega-City One into the mainstream spotlight – if it isn’t there already – Jason Kingsley told Screen Geek that for the sake of Dredd fans, he’s more concerned with the actual quality of the show itself, stressing that “this needs to be done right” after so many false starts.

Back in May of this year, it was announced that Im Global and Rebellion are working on a TV series entitled Judge Dredd: Mega-City One, with producer Brian Jenkins revealing that the door would be open for Karl Urban to reprise his role as the iconic lawman from 2012’s cult movie Dredd.
Well, speaking at a Star Trek convention in Las Vegas this past week, Urban has revealed that he’s open to donning the helmet once again, and has even been having talks about that very possibility!
“I am in discussions with them about that,” said Urban (via TrekMovie). “I told them that if they write the material and give Dredd something to do and give him a function, I will be there. I would love to.”
Urban’s performance as Judge Dredd was very well received by fans, so lets hope he can reach a deal with »

If Dredd was the only time we got to see Karl Urban as the titular character, that’d be a shame. From the very start of the action movie, he was Judge Dredd. While some actors might’ve looked ridiculous in that suit and helmet, not for a second did Urban. He had a huge presence that helped make the contained […]
