Judge Dredd TV series is one step closer to happeningEnlarge (credit: Lionsgate)
Attention, citizens of Mega City One: Judge Dredd will finally be coming to a vid-screen near you. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Rebellion, the British game company that also owns 2000AD—the “Galaxy’s greatest comic” and the home of the antihero lawman—and IM Global are working on a live-action TV series about the future cop.
This will be welcome news for the tens of thousands of fans who signed a petition to make a sequel to 2012’s Dredd.

That movie, starring Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby, was a hit with critics and fans of the comic, but an inept marketing campaign in the US resulted in disappointing box office revenues. (The less said about the 1995 Stallone Judge Dredd film, the better.)
“This is one of those seminal sci-fi properties that seems to only become and more relevant with age,” IM Global’s TV president Mark Stern told Entertainment Weekly. “Not only is it a rich world with biting social commentary, but it’s also fun as hell! As a fan of the comics and both films, it’s a dream come true to be able to work with Jason and Chris [Kingsley, the owners of Rebellion] in adapting this for television.”
