There’s a remake of Dario Argento’s Italian horror classic on the way, and it now has arguably its most crucial element in place.

Judge Dredd has had a mixed history in terms of live-action adaptations. The first movie to feature the character was a failure in almost every possible way. The second was amazing, but nobody saw it. Despite critical praise and a cult following, there was no chance it would get a sequel. Now, the character is getting another shot on the small screen. According to Entertainment Weekly, IM Global and game developer Rebellion are teaming up to create a Judge Dredd TV show.
