Judge Minty – 2000AD Fan Film in the works
Posted by LiveFor on March 15, 2010
While we wait for the new Judge Dredd film to find a director and begin filming – Duncan Jones’ recent ideas sound as if he is the man for the job – we can look forward to seeing some Judge action in a fan film heading our way called Judge Minty.
This is looking very cool.
The fan film will be based on Judge Minty, a character created by John Wagner and Mick McMahon. An aging Judge who is forced to ‘retire’ from the streets, mainly it seems because he has become too compassionate.
He chooses to take ‘The Long Walk’ into the Cursed Earth, there “to take law to the lawless”. The film will be based around his first experiences in the radioactive wastes.
Edmund Dehn is playing Judge Minty. Award winning artist and illustrator Greg Staples has a brief appearance as Judge Dredd (that’s him in the pic) and filming is currently underway.
Steven Sterlacchini is directing it and I can’t wait to see some footage.
