Judge Dredd again?

It might be an understatement to say that the big-budget Sly-powered JUDGE DREDD movie didn't turn out especially satisfying (at least to fans of the comic incarnation), but we may get another chance at seeing The Law personified filling perps with ballistic justice on the big screen.

Dredd rights-holders 2000AD and Rebellion have teamed with production company DNA Films (SUNSHINE, 28 DAYS LATER, THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND) for a new flick featuring the futuristic Mega City One's infamous peace officer as he dispenses instant violent justice. The plan is to begin production some time in 2009.

Before we get too excited, keep in mind that this is actually the third time we've heard Dredd would return to the big screen. Way back in 2001, Rebellion announced plans for new back-to-back JUDGE DREDD flicks, one involving corruption in Mega City One's legal system and the other pitting Dredd against the notorious supernatural Judge Death. Then in 2004, a new production company reported they were scrapping previous scripts and starting from scratch. Only Psi Division knows if it'll actually happen this time.

Extra Tidbit: I think Jason Statham has the perfect jaw for the helmet. Thoughts on who else could play Dredd?
