The Law!

While watching Danny Boyle accept his Best Director award at the Golden Globes for Slumdog Millionaire, I mentioned to Mis Hooz over the phone that his production company acquired the rights to a new Judge Dredd movie. (io9 posted some concept art that's been done already.)

That, of course, immediately brought up the awful Sylvester Stallone movie from 14 years ago. (Has it really been that long?) And if we're talking about that, we have to post a clip of this scene (which was mocked recently on Attack of the Show):

Armand Assante can really bring it when he has to, don't you think?

Anyway, I think Danny Boyle could improve on that. If he was going to direct the thing. And I'm not sure he should, after doing Slumdog Millionaire, which could win Best Picture at the Oscars, (and getting sci-fi out of his system with Sunshine and 28 Days Later). But it'd be pretty cool.
