Exclusive Interview: Dredd 3D ‘s Alex Garland


Fans of the futuristic vigilante anti-hero known as Judge Dredd, first introduced in the pages of the British weekly 2000 A.D. in 1977, have much to rejoice, because in Lionsgate’s Dredd 3D, they finally got the character right and that comes down to two things: the casting of Karl Urban in the lead role and the hiring of Alex Garland to write and oversee the project.

Garland has established himself as one of England’s top genre writers, having written the screenplays of 28 Days Later and Sunshine for director Danny Boyle, and also writing the novels “The Tesseract” and “The Beach,” the latter which Boyle adapted. Doing a superhero movie like Dredd may seem like an odd choice from some of Garland’s work like his recent adaptation of the novel Never Let Me Go, but as it turns out, he’s been a comic book fan since he was a youth.
