Not EVERY movie needs a backstory, you know. The new Judge Dredd movie that is being made drops Dredd into a high rise full of criminals and locks the door - and we never learn a single thing about Dredd. He never even takes off his helmet. And it's one of the coolest things about the script.
I stand by my notion that the film needs to open in Metropolis and stay there.
I think the world needs to the see the backstory of Otis and Ms. Tessmacher - who were they as children up until they became adults. How DID they hook up with Lex. Do you want to know?
