Dredd Remake Was Possible Because Sylvester Stallone's Judge Dredd Failed

25 September 2012 6:07 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

While promoting "Dredd," writer Alex Garland spoke about the movie, revealing that it would not have been possible unless the Sylvester Stallone version didn't fail at the box office. "[That] made it possible for us to get the license, because if it had been a smash hit, we couldn't have made our film," he explained, adding: "We were in post-production on 'Sunshine' and in pre-production on '28 Weeks Later,' and [producer] Andrew [Macdonald] said, 'I think we can get the rights to 'Dredd,' because nobody wants them and nobody realizes how good a license it is. Do you want to do it?' And I immediately said 'yes.'" Of course these comments now sound funny, since "Dredd" is failing much worse than "Judge Dredd" did. "Dredd" grossed only $6 million this weekend on a $50 million budget, while "Judge Dredd" took in $113 million globally on a $90 million budget. »
