Well kids, it hurts me to report this, but according to AICN, a Judge Dredd film has been green lit for production. I know, after seeing the 1995 Sylvester Stallone version, I was left wanting more (shifty eyes). They don’t specify if this project is a sequel, or a remake of the earlier installment, there’s just an official statement saying its a go. You can check it out after the jump, and draw your own conclusions.

Rebellion and 2000 AD are proud to announce that Judge Dredd is coming to a cinema near you soon!

Together with DNA Films, the movie production company behind such great sci-fi movies such as Sunshine and 28 Weeks Later, Judge Dredd will go into production in 2009.

Jason Kingsley, CEO and Creative Director said, ‘We can’t give away too many details at this point, but we’re looking forward to working with DNA Films to bring Judge Dredd back to the big screen.’

We’ll keep you up to date with breaking news as it happens!

One word……. why?
