If there ever is a television series based around Judge Dredd, don’t expect writer Alex Garland to return. In an interview at New York Comic Con, Garland gave his answer when asked if he’d ever return to the character:
“No. It was a pretty crude experience, for a bunch of reasons. At the end of it, I didn’t want to go back. I love Dredd, by which I mean I love the character, but I’m not in any hurry to do that again.”
Garland was the writer for Karl Urban’s version of the character and most people felt this to be the most comic book accurate version of Judge Dredd. There were apparently behind the scenes problems, where Urban had even previously stated that Garland was the real director of the movie. It is a shame for fans that Garland would not wish to return.
What do you think about Garland’s statement?
