SDCC: Release Date Set for Dredd

Variety reports that Lionsgate is planning on bringing Dredd to theaters on September 21, 2012. That is a week after Resident Evil: Retribution and the same day as Hotel Transylvania hits theaters.

Dredd is directed by Pete Travis from a script by Alex Garland and stars Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby and Lena Headey.

The film takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot – if necessary.
