On the up side it looks like the new screenplay is a much less convoluted story than the original. Think 'Training Day' meets 'Die Hard' hard with a bit of 'Assault on Precinct 13' thrown in. For those that wish to know more, a google of "judge dredd" and "peach trees" should turn up a script review somewhere out there.
I'm also rather curious as to whom they might cast as Dredd's sidekick in this one. If it was me, I'd choose Summer Glau, but perhaps that kind of typecasting won't do the girl any favours in the long run...plus she'd need to dye her hair or wear a wig.
