They’re trying to relaunch the character with an all new reboot film, with completely different people (including the writer of 28 Days Later). It sounds like they want to stay true to the original comic instead of the lame movie, so it could work. The question is, if it’s really true to the comic, they will never show Judge Dredd’s face. The movie had him wear his helmet for about a minute.
Dredd’s trademark line “I am the law!” was “I am DUH law under Stallone.
If they do it right it could be interesting. We shall see.
