Judge Dredd Getting Tv Show

Ever since Karl Urban perfectly nailed the persona of Judge Dredd on the big-screen in Dredd, fans have been hoping for a sequel. Sure, there have been rumors, and there was even talk of Netflix doing something with the property, but nothing concrete. Until now.

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that independent entertainment studio, IM Global, and independent U.K. games developer/publisher, Rebellion, have settled on a deal to turn the comic book character into a live-action TV show called Judge Dredd: Mega City One. They describe it as follows:

The potential show is set in a future where the East Coast of the U.S. has become a crowded and crime-ridden megalopolis. The plan is to make the series an ensemble drama about a team of Judges — futuristic cops invested with the power to be judge, jury, and executioner — as they deal with the challenges the future-shocked 22nd century throws at them.

The show is still in the early stages of development, and no talent or network affiliation has yet been announced; however, Mark Stern, Stuart Ford, and Jason and Chris Kingsley are listed as executive producers. The latter three were producers on 2012’s Dredd.

Other than the above information, and the poster for the project (below), we don’t know a whole lot. Will the TV series have direct ties to the movie, or will it be more comic-centric? I guess time will tell.
