Collider has it that the title to the upcoming Karl Urban re-adaptation will simply be called Dredd. No Judge. They also have a synopsis, via IM Global:
DREDD takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of
quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the
most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law,
sentence offenders and execute them on the spot – if necessary. The
endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision
of director Peter Travis bring DREDD to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film
that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation
from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip.
This follows news from last week that Olivia Thirlby (Juno) has joined the cast, playing a telepathic rookie named Cassandra Alexander who shadows Dredd. Also, Dredd will reportedly keep his helmet on for the entire movie, and will be more faithful to the tone of the comic. Filming is due to begin this fall in Johannesburg for a 2012 release.
