Is the new Judge Dredd movie Dredd 3D an adaptation or inspired by a specific storyline in the comics or graphic novels?

1 Answer 1


No, Dredd 3D is not an adaptation or inspired by a specific storyline.

Alex Garland did consider adapting one of the more well known Judge Dredd storylines such as Origins, but decided that that he would not adapt such a big epic and instead went for an approach of writing an original story - a kind of 'day in the life of Judge Dredd'.
