2000 AD Writer Rob Williams Has Finished The Pilot Script For JUDGE DREDD: MEGA-CITY ONE

Just over a year ago, we learned the live-action series, Judge Dredd: Mega City One, was in development, and now we know that 2000 AD writer Rob Williams has completed the script for the pilot episode...

It’s been quite a while since we last heard some news for the live-action Judge Dredd series, but thanks to a new report, we've learned writer Rob Williams is the creative lead for the pilot and that he’s already finished the script for the first episode.

In their report, The Hollywood Reporter also revealed that Williams “worked with a group of writers” to map out the story for the first few seasons.

And to go along with the latest news, executive producer Jason Kingsley made a statement that described the script as thrilling and teased even more announcements to come:


“I’ve read the pilot script by Rob and the team, and got that same thrill I did when I first discovered Judge Dredd. As we drive this project forward I’m always surprised by how much effort goes on behind-the-scenes to bring something like Mega-City One to the screen. I’m very pleased with how the whole project is coming together and looking forward to more exciting announcements in the coming months.”

No network or streaming service Is officially set to air the series, and so far no casting decisions have been made. That said, the last we heard, Karl Urban was in talks to reprise the role he first took up in 2012’s Dredd.

Also, while his name is in the title, Dredd isn’t expected to be the only lead character in Judge Dredd: Mega City One, as  the series has been described as an ensemble.
