Director Pete Travis has been forced off Dredd – the latest film adaptation about the 2000AD lawman Judge Dredd – according to reports in the US press.
The Los Angeles Times claims that scriptwriter and producer Alex Garland ( 28 Days Later , Sunshine ) has taken over the post-production process and may seek a co-director credit.
“Although the specifics of the disagreement that led to Travis’ dismissal are up for debate, two sources said it arose when Travis and producers and executives in charge of the production did not see eye-to-eye on footage Travis was delivering, ” says the LA Times , quoting three anonymous sources.
“A separate person involved in the film maintained that although Travis is no longer involved in post-production, he is keeping up with progress via the Internet and has not been pushed aside.”
Speculation also suggests that there may be reshoots.
We know what Dredd would say: “ Drokk!! ”
