Taken from a Rebellion Press Release:
Since Karl Urban donned the helm to star as Judge Dredd, 2012’s DREDD has gone on to achieve cult movie status – the official campaign for a sequel, endorsed and co-ordinated by 2000 AD, now has a 125,000 name petition and a 93,000-strong Facebook page. The fans have since rocketed the DVD and Blu-Ray to the top of the Amazon charts around the world and Urban himself has personally thanked them for their ongoing support.
Rebellion is very pleased to announce that DREDD: The Illustrated Script and Visuals by Jock and Alex Garland is out this week from all good book stores and comic book stores on both sides of the Atlantic.
Taking Garland’s original pre-production screenplay we have run it alongside Jock’s never-before-seen comic-style storyboards, which were not only used by director Pete Travis but also award-winning cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle to create the visual look of the film. The stunning layout by 2000 AD designer Simon Parr, put together in close cooperation with Jock, are exclusive concept visuals, behind-the-scenes photos, and notes from the artist on his work creating the look of this cult classic.
It also features an exclusive introduction from screenwriter Alex Garland: “Part of [Jock’s] huge contribution was a full-length comic book version of the script, that we distributed to everyone from financiers to crew. His paintings and sketches were one of the quickest and most effective way of conveying the look and tone of the project. When – a very long time later – the picture was locked, I could see his input had pervaded the film at all levels.”
The limited edition numbered hardback sold out from 2000 AD’s online store within three days!
