Re: Judge Dredd Reboot!! - Part 2
I don't think they had the budget to make MC-1 look like the Stallone version. The filmmakers probably went with the District 9 look because it was cheaper.
If they had the budget I could see them going for a Blade Runner cityscape. The overcrowded, down and dirty futuristic cityscape would work well for Mega City One in live action.
All aboard the Pork Chop Express!
