Director booted from new Judge Dredd flick?

As the new Judge Dredd film – Dredd – enters post-production, reports have emerged that director Pete Travis has been removed from the flick due to “creative disagreements”. 

According to the L.A. Times:

“Travis has not been involved in the current editing phase of the movie, after creative disagreements with producers and executives in charge of the film reached a boiling point.”

Reportedly running the editing room is writer/producer Alex Garland (who may even seek a co-director credit when all is said and done).

A source close to the production maintains Travis is still in charge, and merely keeping up with progress via the internet.

Judge Dredd was previously brought to the screen in a much-maligned Sylvester Stallone vehicle sixteen years ago. This new take – starring Karl Urban as the Judge – was said to be a grittier adaptation of the comic.

It is set for release in September of 2012. Pending any reshoots, of course.

Discuss: This doesn’t sound like good news.
