HOLLYWOOD, Oct. 8 (UPI) -- The remake of Sylvester Stallone's sci-fi shoot-em-up "Judge Dredd" has hit a personality-conflict roadblock, sources told the Los Angeles Times.

The newspaper said this week screenwriter-producer Alex Garland has taken over the post-production editing of "Dredd" from director Pete Travis after so-called creative differences arose between the production staff and the producers.

The movie is set for release next September; however, the changes taking place did not rule out the re-shooting of some scenes, sources told the Times.

The newspaper said "Dredd" started out with a strong acting, directing and production team, but the creative clashes escalated to the point that Garland, who has never directed a film, stepped in and took the reins.

Neither Garland nor Travis would comment on the situation; however, a source told the Times Travis was still monitoring the post-production process and had not been pushed out of the project.
