Judge Dredd TV Series in the Works

Great news Judge Dredd fans, it looks like there is a TV series based on our favorite futuristic law bringer currently in the works. Personally we here at Nerdgasm Needs are huge fans of the 2012 Dredd film and have been eagerly waiting for a sequel. Though this is not a direct sequel to the movie, fans should still be pretty excited about this announcement. Honestly, an on going TV series might actually be a little better avenue for Dredd especially with so much content already written in the comic series. This has the potential to be one of the best comic booked based series on TV if it is done right. Also be sure to check out the official poster below.

According to Entertainment Weekly;

Independent entertainment studio IM Global and independent U.K. games developer and publisher Rebellion have struck a deal to turn the iconic comic book character into a live-action TV show called Judge Dredd: Mega City One. 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.

IM Global Television president Mark Stern attributed the pressure from fans on social media as one of the major reasons why this project was able to gather momentum. So far there has been no official word released on who will be cast as Dredd or any of the other judges. Also, it has not been said which network this series will be featured on. Our personal hope would be to see Karl Urban return as Judge Dredd because he did such a fantastic job in the 2012 movie. Of course only time will tell but this definitely sounds like a labor of love, and we personally can’t wait for this series to debut. As always we want to hear from you Nerd Nation. Are excited for a Judge Dredd TV series or would you have rather seen another feature length film. Let’s discuss so be sure to let us know your thoughts on this by leaving them in a comment below, on the Facebook page, or hit us up on the Twitter page @Nerdgasmneeds.
