Rebellion, the parent company of 2000 AD, has spent $100 million on a new studio for its television and film projects, which currently include Judge Dredd: Mega-City One and Rogue Trooper, directed by Duncan Jones. The new Rebellion Studios has an overall area of 220,000 square feet, including a 25,000-square-foot sound stage.

The company expects to create up to 500 new jobs with the purchase of the space, which was previously a printing press for the Daily Mail newspaper.

Regarding the purchase, Rebellion co-founder Jason Kingsley said:

"We've got a huge library of good stories, and we'll do original stuff as well. We make computer games. VFX is an area we are looking at as well. There is a whole bunch of interesting stuff, but you do need the craft skills and you need facilities...and it is hard to find them. We were looking and couldn't find anywhere to shoot the stuff we have ambitions to do."
