Rebellion Starting Film & TV Studio

Video-game company Rebellion is starting their own film and television studio, reports Variety, saying they are building out studio space as part of a $100 million investment in the endeavor. Rebellion acquired the Dredd rights in 2000 with the purchase of comic publisher 2000AD, and company cofounders Jason and Chris Kingsley were producers on Dredd, the 2012 film reboot. Word is the new studio will create upcoming TV series Judge Dredd: Mega-City One as well as the Untitled Rogue Trooper Movie that's tentatively being directed by Duncan Jones. Here are some details:
In the gaming world, Rebellion is known for the “Sniper Elite” series and such recent releases as “Strange Brigade.” It has acquired a raft of comic book IP, having bought “2000 AD” from Egmont and, two years ago, the Fleetway and IPC Youth Group archives from the same seller, a deal that handed it titles and characters including “Battle,” “Action” and “Roy of the Rovers.”

Jason Kingsley told Variety that the barriers between different types of screen-based entertainment and storytelling are falling away. “I think we are pretty good at creating content in all different types, screen content and interactive games and all sorts of stuff, and I’m hoping we’re going to be equally good at making TV and film,” he said.

The Kingsleys were producers on the 2012 feature film “Dredd,” and the hard-hitting lawman will return in TV series “Judge Dredd: Mega-City One.” That will be produced by Rebellion Studios, which, with pilot script in hand, is talking to potential broadcast and platform partners. The Rogue Trooper film features the titular blue-skinned, genetically engineered super-soldier, and is being developed in partnership with Duncan Jones and Stuart Finnegan, who are directing and producing, respectively.

Part of the reason for setting up the new studio, which sits near Rebellion’s Oxford base, was a lack of space to pursue these new projects, Kingsley said.

Did we see different movies? The newer Dredd was a bland, basic movie. I finished watching it, but I wasn’t gripped by the story at any point whatsoever.

You did see the same movie. You just have a different opinion.
