Lionsgate have announced that they will be handling US distribution for Dredd, the upcoming Judge Dredd movie that will, as we first reported, see Karl Urban don the famous helmet. Alex Garland has written the screenplay and Pete Travis is directing.
Here in blighty, Entertainment have picked up the rights (oldish news, but I think a reminder is relevant here) . Fairly good news all round, I think.
The Lionsgate deal will also see them taking charge of Boaz Yakin’s Safe and Simon West’s Protection, and while none of the three films have yet to be shot – Dredd kicks off on November 12th – the company’s press release has described them all as “genre movies at their best”.
