We’ve already heard the great news that Judge Dredd will return in the TV series Judge Dredd: Mega City One but there’s the small matter of time. Namely, the two years wait we’ll have to endure before we get to see the judge, jury, and executioner in action.
According to SFX Magazine, production on Judge Dredd: Mega City One is chugging along full-speed ahead, and returning franchise producer Jason Kingsley has been talking about the scope of the new series.
“Long-form storytelling makes showing Mega-City One and its inhabitants much easier. Trying to fit all of that into a two-hour movie is very hard. My best guess is that it’s at least two years away. But we’re so early in the process that things could happen a bit faster, or much more slowly.”
It’s defiantly disappointing but Kingsley quickly followed up that blow with: “Dark fantasy elements are one area that would be great to explore. The show will combine the macabre with the insane and the light-hearted. It’s a big place, after all, with 400 million stories to tell.”
So, there you go. It might take a while before we see Judge Dredd: Mega City One but when we do, all bets are off…now all we need is that Karl Urban announcement.
