Judge Dredd Director Fired?

Karl Urban Dredd
The LA Times is reporting from the set of the upcoming Judge Dredd remake that director Pete Travis is no longer with the film. The movie is currently in post-production and it is believed that writer and producer Alex Garland will assume the role of director for the remainder of the production. This would be the first time that Garland has stepped into the director’s chair, being best known as the writer for such science fiction movies as 28 Days Later and Sunshine.

It’s unclear what the reasons were for Travis’ departure although it’s believed that extensive re-shoots may have to be done.

Dredd stars Karl Urban and Lena Heady and has a planned September 2012 release date.
