He is the LAW! Fans were disappointed to hear that Karl Urban wouldn’t be returning to play Judge Dredd in a sequel to 2012’s Dredd, but it’s just been announced that a new Judge Dredd: Mega-City One TV show is in the works from IM Global and independent U.K. games developer, Rebellion. The series will be produced by IM Global Television president Mark Stern, CEO Stuart Ford, and Rebellion’s Jason and Chris Kingsley, who along with Ford were also executive producers on Dredd (2012). There are currently no actors signed on to the project and there’s no release date for the series as of yet. A synopsis was released courtesy of EW:
Judge Dredd: Mega-City One is set in a future where the East Coast of the U.S. has become a crowded and crime-ridden megalopolis. It will be 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.
