FILMS

Shaun of the Dead (1994)
Directed by Edgar Wright.
2000AD featured a comic prequel of this 'Romzomcom' (romantic zombie comedy) in prog 1384 (April, 2004) written by Simon Pegg & Edgar Wright, with art by Frazer Irving.
A Life Less Ordinary (1997)
Directed by Danny Boyle.
2000AD featured the comic adaption of this film in progs 1063-1070 (Oct. to Nov. 1997). Adapted by Bish-OP, with art by Steve Yeowell & Alan Craddock.
Judge Dredd (1995)
Directed by Danny Cannon.
The story combines elements from The Return of Rico (prog 30), The Day the Law Died (progs 86-108), The Judge Child (progs 156-181) and Block Mania (progs 236-244).
Visually the film is excellent, but it was a dissapointment to the fans, especially after Dredd is taken off the streets.

Hardware (1990)
Directed by Richard Stanley.
Although not originally intended to be a 2000AD film, a court ruled that the story was significantly based on Shok (Judge Dredd Annual 1981, reprinted in prog 612). Steve McManus and Kevin O'Neill were added to Hardware's writing credits.
