The Judge Dredd TV series is ready to go once it’s able to begin production, according to Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley. Kingsley spoke with MovieWeb for a new interview and said that the scripts for the series, which was first announced back in 2017, is just waiting for COVID-19 until it can commence production.

“I want there to be a sequel [to Dredd],” Kingsley said. “We’ve got the rights back so we can do it, we’ve just got to get rid of this virus thing that’s going on at the moment, and then hopefully things can kick off in all sorts of different areas of making film and TV, it’s just, it’s all very messed up at the moment for everybody. A lot of work has been done on all sorts of different scripts actually. So Mega-City One the TV show. Basically, we can’t go into production because of the [situation] and we’ve got scripts and everything is ready to go but the problem is, because of the [situation] and everybody’s funding changes and everybody’s shifting around.”

Kingsley noted that the show is hopeful to have Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby back, and perhaps someone else. He noted, “Well if we can get people back, you know, we even joked that it would be quite fun to get Stallone back.”
