The new JUDGE DREDD movie also stars Olivia Thirlby as Cassandra Anderson and is shooting in 3D.

Said producers Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich of the new film:

“The main thing about Dredd is that it’s a fantastic comic that was completely messed up 20 years ago,” said Macdonald. “Our idea is to make a very hard, R-rated, gritty, realistic movie of Dredd in Megacity, so we’ve got to get the tone right. He’s not going to take off his helmet. His bike is going to feel real. He’s going to hit people and it’s going to feel real.”

’28 MONTHS LATER’ In Development – DANNY BOYLE: “I Want To Direct It”

A recent quote from ALEX GARLAND – best known for writing the novel THE BEACH, and scripting the Danny Boyle-directed scifi film SUNSHINE and 28 DAYS LATER. – indicates that a 3rd installment of the zombie-plague movie – possibly called 28 MONTHS LATER – was in developmental hell:

“When we made ’28 Days Later,’ the rights were frozen between a group of people who are no longer talking to each other. And so, the film is never going to happen unless those people start talking to each other again. There is no script as far as I’m aware.”

Despite that, director DANNY BOYLE has indicated that the movie may indeed be moving forward:

“There’s another 28 Days Later in the works.” When asked if the title would be 28 Months Later, Boyle replied “In theory, yes.” Immediately the next question was if he’d be producing, to which Boyle responded, “Actually I want to direct it.”

A little over two years since THRALL WORLD first heard about the development of an HBO backed series based on the NINE INCH NAILS ‘YEAR ZERO’ album.. Here’s the latest:

Trent Reznor says HBO and BBC Worldwide Productions are moving forward with the development of “Year Zero,” the grim sci-fi epic that Reznor has chronicled in his music as well as in a celebrated Alternate Reality Game (ARG).

“We are in [the development phase of] pre-production with HBO and BBC [Worldwide Productions] to do a miniseries,” Reznor said.

Reznor is working with the team of Lawrence Bender, best known for producing Quentin Tarantino films such as “Pulp Fiction,” “Inglourious Basterds” and ”Reservoir Dogs“ as well as the documentaries “An Inconvenient Truth” and “Countdown to Zero,” and Kevin Kelly Brown, who was executive producer on “Roswell.“

“Year Zero” takes place approximately 15 years in the future, with the U.S. a religious dictatorship and the world on the brink of environmental and social collapse. Reznor has indicated that he’d be interested in a film version of the story, and has also hinted at a recorded sequel at some point.

For a limited time, sign up and download a free copy of The Social Network sampler HERE.

Said TRENT REZNOR (NINE INCH NAILS, HOW TO DESTROY ANGELS) about his collaboration with ATTICUS ROSS (credited with programming and/or producing WITH TEETH, YEAR ZERO, GHOSTS I-IV and THE SLIP as well as the score for the movie THE BOOK OF ELI)

“This is what Atticus and I have been working on for the last few months. We had a great time working with David Fincher [SE7EN, THE GAME, FIGHT CLUB, THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON] on this and the film turned out excellent – something we’re very proud of. It opens in theatres Oct 1 and you should check it out.

Musically, this all came out of our secret laboratory – electronic in basis, but mostly organic sounding. Lots of experiments and emphasis on sound fraying around the edges while focusing on the proper emotional tone for the various scenes.”
