That Judge Dredd Movie Dread? Never Mind


?Remember yesterday when I said director Pete Travis had been fired from the new Judge Dredd movie, and how that was probably a bad thing? Yeah, never mind. Here’s a joint statement from Travis and screenwriter Alex Garland, who was supposedly taking over:

During all stages of the filmmaking, ‘Dredd’ has been a collaboration
between a number of dedicated creative parties. From the outset we
decided on an unorthodox collaboration to make the film. This situation
has been misinterpreted. To set the record straight, Pete was not fired
and remains a central part of the collaboration, and Alex is not seeking
a co-director credit. We are all extremely proud of the film we have
made, and respectfully suggest that it is judged on viewing when its
released next year.

Yeah. Sorry about that. I promise I’m not trying to post bullshit in order to get pageviews or stir up controversy or anything, I’m just really, really gullible and stupid. Sorry. (Via /Film)
