Judge Dredd name change

The upcoming Judge Dredd has had a name change, to distance itself from the Sylvester Stallone original.

At the Toronto International Film Festival, the film is being referred to as just Dredd, with the plot being listed as follows:

"DREDD takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot - if necessary. The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision of director Pete Travis bring DREDD to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra's revered comic strip."

Pre-production started on 23rd August in South Africa.
