First Look at Concept Art for “Judge Dredd: Mega-City One” TV Series

Dredd 2012

IM Global and independent U.K. games developer and publisher Rebellion are currently in the process of developing a live-action TV series of Dredd, which is titled “Judge Dredd: Mega-City One.“ Karl Urban is in talks to return as Dredd.

While we wait for further news, check out two new concept art pieces via the good people over at IGN.

It’s unlikely that we’ll see the TV series for quite some time yet, but pre-production does seem to be already underway as I type this latest update.

”Judge Dredd: Mega-City One” is set in a future where the East Coast of the U.S. has become a crowded and crime-ridden megalopolis. It will be an ensemble drama about a team of Judges — futuristic cops invested with the power to be judge, jury, and executioner — as they deal with the challenges the future-shocked 22nd century throws at them.
