Statement Released About Dredd Rumors

Statement Released About Dredd Rumors
After rumors that Pete Travis, director of the upcoming "Dredd" film, was removed from his post, a statement has been released.

Pete Travis, along with Alex Garland, who was said to have been replacing Travis, issued the joint official statement:

"During all stages of the filmmaking, 'Dredd' has been a collaboration between a number of dedicated creative parties. From the outset we decided on an unorthodox collaboration to make the film. This situation has been misinterpreted.

To set the record straight, Pete was not fired and remains a central part of the collaboration, and Alex is not seeking a co-director credit. We are all extremely proud of the film we have made, and respectfully suggest that it is judged on viewing when its released next year."

"Dredd" is slated for a September 21, 2012 release.
