It seems that we may see a re-imagined version of a futuristic judge in the near future. 2000 AD has revealed that a brand new Judge Dredd film has been greenlit.

The production companies 2000 AD and Rebellion will be teaming up with DNA Films, which has produced Sunshine and 28 Days Later, for the new movie.

"We can't give away too many details at this point, but we're looking forward to working with DNA Films to bring Judge Dredd back to the big screen," said Jason Kingsley, CEO and Creative Director for 2000 AD.

It was said that the film will begin production in 2009.
