Currently filming in South Africa under the watchful eye of director Pete Travis (Vantage Point), Dredd is scripted by novelist turned screenwriter Alex Garland (The Beach, 28 Days Later, Sunshine) and is expected to follow the brutal lawman on an average day on the beat in Mega City One, as he breaks in his new partner, Judge Anderson played by Olivia Thirlby (Juno).
Dredd will be presented in 3D, and is expected to hit cinema screens in 2012.
