Remember how all our dreams came true when we found out there's a Dredd TV show on the way? Well, we've got an update on where it's at and what we can expect, thanks to Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley (via SFX magazine).

Although it's obviously early days, that didn't stop the Dredd boss from teasing a few details about what fans can expect, revealing that the series could be very different from the movie adaptations. "Dark fantasy elements are one area that would be great to explore," he admits. "The show will combine the macabre with the insane and the light-hearted. It's a big place, after all, with 400 million stories to tell." A more fantasy-based Dredd? That's something I want to see!

Even if you loved both the Dredd movies (for very different reasons), there's reason to be excited about the TV show. "Long-form storytelling makes showing Mega-City One and its inhabitants much easier, " says Kingsley. "Trying to fit all of that into a two-hour movie is very hard." We still have quite a while to wait though: "My best guess if that it's at least two years away," he says. "But we're so early in the process that things could happen a bit faster, or much more slowly." Well, that was nice and vague, wasn't it?

And yes, I know what you're wondering, but Kingsley expertly dodged the question about Karl Urban returning to play Dredd saying talks haven't yet begun, but admitting he knows Urban "well enough to have a chat with him".

Fingers crossed then.

Karl Urban has to be Dredd, he nailed it in the movie.

^ His Dredd was the only real Dredd, as far as Iím concerned. In fact, I bought the DVD largely based on your recommendation P, and Iím pleased to say I was not at all disappointed. :D
It was, in essence, everything the 1995 piece of s#!t starring Sylvester Stallone was not.

If the series follows the newer movieís lead and forgets the 1995 movie altogether, I might watch.
