There is a brand new poster out for Lionsgate’s Dredd reboot that is worth a quick view. Just to recap, the film is not anything major as it is set for a September release which should give it away, but this is the start of a potential low-budget trilogy. The project’s writer Alex Garland went on the record saying last month that the movie needed to gross $50 million domestically in order to warrant a sequel for the Karl Urban-starrer.
In terms of setting, this is very much your classic R-rated Judge Dredd. The backdrop is a fictional earth where police are now called judges and brutality is in their nature. This Pete Travis-directed film casts Olivia Thirlby and Lena Headey in supporting roles with the former playing a partner-like cadet named Judge Anderson. Headey is the villainous lead Ma-Ma who is responsible for selling a reality-altering drug called Slo-Mo.
Dredd hits theaters nationwide on September 21 later this year.
