Judge Dredd co-creator John Wager has revealed that 20th Century Fox passed on a spinoff movie featuring series antagonist Judge Death.

Speaking to Screen Geek at 2000 AD’s 2000th Issue Celebration event, Wagner was quoted as saying:

That was actually the first script that Alex Garland did was a Judge Death script but Fox, who they were dealing with at the time, turned it down. They wanted more nuts and bolts before they went into the [metaphysical].

Judge Death hails from an alternate dimension and believes that life itself is a crime, the penalty for which is death. He also was the subject of Adi Shankar’s Bootleg Universe spinoff animated short Superfiend. We’d love to see him shoe up to menace Dredd in a future movie, and Wagner also mentioned in the interview that he still believes a sequel will be made, so let's wait and see.

I'm confused... is this related to the 2012 Karl Urban film?

No, this script was pitched to Fox before that film went into production.
