Image from a remake I didn't even know was being made~ Who can keep track of them all?

Apparently Karl Urban (my favorite thing about "Star Trek") is making a new version of Sylvester Stallone's old movie "Judge Dredd." Here's the first image to be released.

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.

I never got into Judge Dredd. I'm just waiting for the inevitable "I AM THE LAW" compilation that will end up on YouTube.

Futuristic neo-noir?
Dark, visceral incarnation?

bleeeuuurrrgh.

OK I feel better now. Have these guys ever even read 2000AD? Mega City 1 is a tacky, cheap and cheerful vision of brightly coloured plastic and unreliable technology. There's always a fun, satirical feel to it. JD deserves better than yet another by-the-numbers post-apocalyptic-neo-noir-dark-visceral-dystopia.

Still, I don't have to see it, do I? I can always wait for the next re-make...

Didn't care much for the original so I'm doubtful I'll follow this one.

I'd heard that. I've never seen the original, but I do like Karl Urban.
