Dredd 3D Not a Remake

When I first heard about the remake of Judge Dredd I was appalled.  My thought was “can’t they come up with an original idea?”  Well after seeing the preview and reading about this upcoming film, I see now that it is not a remake after all. http://youtu.be/JqqgrUna28w Announced in 2008 that the movie was in [...]
