It took over two years for DNA Films to get the rights to the character, and now it's going to be whipped up for a near $45 million, as "a high-octane slay ride through the dark underbelly of a vast futuristic city." Seeing that we're already barreling towards the mid-year mark, and production is supposed to begin this year, casting notices should begin to pour in shortly.
The big question: Who should leave this and try to wipe our minds of Stallone's 1995 film? Since there's no distinct face in the long-running comic strip, and it occurs in real time, Hollywood can go in a myriad of ways with the casting. The star can be old or young, and DNA could even dip into Dredd history and choose a lead who isn't white, which would be a nice change of pace.
