Will New Dredd Film Be As Bad As The Old One? - Updated

Time to start getting worried about the new Judge Dredd movie? Despite design work by 2000AD artist Jock, the movie's producers haven't contacted the character's creators according to Dredd writer Alan Grant. Or have they? Click through for update.

Talking to /Film, Grant - co-writer of Dredd for more than a decade, complained that producers hadn't contacted either himself or Dredd creator John Wagner to consult on the movie, but Jock responded on 2000AD's official message board that that was not accurate. According to fans at the board, Wagner has seen the movie script and given feedback to the producers, as early as May this year. So was Grant mistaken, or were his comments a sign of sour grapes over being left out of the loop?

(Thanks for the heads up, Matthew.)
