We are pretty pleased to share the news that Duncan Jones (filmmaker and all around cool dude) has confirmed that his script for the upcoming live-action film adaptation of 2000 AD’s Rogue Trooper is DONE.
Back in July of 2018, Jones (“Moon,” “Warcraft“) teased that he was working on a comic book project in film-form on his Twitter, and that it had SOMETHING to do with 2000 AD. The publisher is home to several well-known titles, like Judge Dredd, Sinister Dexter, and the thing Jones actually announced- Rogue Trooper.
It’s been awhile since we’ve gotten an update about the project. We had hoped to hear more after the Rebellion purchase of a studio back in November of 2018, which was supposedly to allow the company to pursue the long-awaited Judge Dredd tv series, Mega City One.
The last time we heard anything about Rogue Trooper, was January of 2019, with Jones saying:
So today’s tweet about the script being done, is pretty darn exciting, and makes us hope a production update isn’t far off.
….but also WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON NEXT, DUNCAN?!
