The writer said that a TV show might be an alternative to the rumoured movie trilogy.
"I actually think that maybe the best way forward for Dredd is television," Garland wrote on the 2000 AD message boards.
"American TV has completely rewritten the rule book where filmed drama is concerned. Game Of Thrones/The Wire/Breaking Bad... An equivalent version of Dredd would be f**king great. Imagine the epics..."
Director Pete Travis recently denied rumours of a dispute between himself and Garland over the making of the film.
Dredd 3D will debut on September 7 in the UK and September 21 in the US.
