files/pictures/picture-35.jpgLast week, the L.A. Times reported that Pete Travis was ousted as the director on DREDD and that writer/producer Alex Garland had taken over in the editing room and was seeking a co-director's credit. Now, the producers have issued the following statement to clarify the situation.
"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."
