Trivia: Director Pete Travis had a hard time on the set of Dredd - Karl Urban would not take his direction, only that of the film's writer Alex Garland. During editing, Travis was blocked out of the process due to conflicts between the producers and the executives, with Garland taking over. Garland briefly attempted to gain a co-director credit due to overseeing the editing, but was blocked by the Director's Guild of Great Britain, because he had not overseen filming or even directed before. Travis and Garland then reached an agreement where Garland would only get writing and producing credits. Several crew members, including Karl Urban, still consider Garland the primary director. Urban said in an interview "what a lot of people don’t realize is that Alex Garland actually directed that movie...I just hope when people think of Alex Garland’s filmography that Dredd is the first film that he made before Ex Machina."
