Not a good sign.

Director Pete Travis Off DREDD
Even though the movie is now in post production, the director of the Judge Dredd reboot has been asked to step away from any further involvement. Click for the details..
 
Well this may explain the lack of any footage or real promotion for Dredd which we were expecting to see quite a while ago. Word is that the director of the movie, who has already shot it, has been asked to leave the editing and post production to others.

From The LA Times..

Although he completed shooting the picture earlier this year, Travis has not been involved in the current editing phase of the movie, after creative disagreements with producers and executives in charge of the film reached a boiling point, said three people with knowledge of the production who asked not to be identified because they were not authorized to speak about the situation publicly. Instead, the editing room is now being run by a writer-producer on the film, the screenwriter Alex Garland, the people said.


Apparently Garland may now seek a co-director credit on the movie too since he has done the lions share of the work since Travis left the project. Details on exactly why Travis was asked to step away are sketchy but according to the LA Times it was "when Travis and producers and executives in charge of the production did not see eye-to-eye on footage Travis was delivering". The blog also mentions that re-shoots are a possibility. This type of thing is rare, but not unheard of. Lets just hope that we still get a good movie out of all of it.

Getting yanked around by bad reporting...

Pete Travis NOT Off Dredd After All?
Well, at least not according to Alex Garland and, er, Pete Travis. The La Times have updated their original story with a statement from the duo that cites an "unorthodox collaboration" for the confusion..
 

Fans feared the worst when word from The LA Times suggested that director Pete Travis had been asked to step away from the already finished shooting Dredd and locked out of the editing process. But now the site has update their story and if we go by Garland and Travis they seem to have gotten the wrong end of the truncheon..



Travis and Garland released a joint statement that read, "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."


They could just be downplaying this of course but for now we should take their word. I find when wires have been crossed like this the truth lies somewhere in the middle. I wouldn't be surprised if Travis is still on board in some capacity but there were arguments about the way the final film should come across and he probably had final word on the edit taken away. Of course that's just my guess! One way or the other it has to be seen as a relief that things are still moving forward.

First Red Band Clip From DREDD Hits

Check out the first clip from the upcoming reboot of Judge Dredd, which features Dredd himself and his rookie partner Anderson dispensing some VERY bloody justice. Not for the squeamish..

Dredd has been getting some very positive feedback from its Comic-Con screening, and Lionsgate have decided to give those that were unable to attend a taste of the action by releasing the below clip just as it debuts at the Con..
