They did make a Space Truckers movie didn't they, I remember Denis Hopper in a 2000AD looking movie.
There was a movie called Space Truckers with Dennis Hopper but as far as I'm aware it was nothing to do with a 2000AD comic, certainly it was nothing like Ace Garp.
The first time I heard of an ABC warrior, was in Sylvester Stallone's Judge Dredd. Were the robots cross-series?
Off the top of my head Hammerstein (the character who the ABC robot in the Stallone film was very loosely based off of) was origionally from a different comic that 2000AD got the rights to. They then had him form the ABC Warrirors, had one series on Mars and then they were tied into Nemesis.
The first series could be adapted fairly standardly, but as soon as they were crossed with Nemesis it got really dark and also really weird in places.
Just regarding cross overs, in 2000AD there's a lot, for example Strontium Dogs has crossed with Dredd. Then there's all the cameo stuff which without being full crossovers indicate a shared universe, like Blackblood (one of the ABC warriros) being a Volgan war robot with the Volgan's being the invading force from Invasion!
Someone with a lot of time and an extensive back catalogue could probably link just about every 2000AD comic strip together in some way.
