Karl Urban is Judge Dredd!?

Movie News

Karl Urban looks set to take over from where Sylvester Stallone left off as “judge, jury and executioner” “Judge Dredd”.

Bleeding Cool reports that the Kiwi, who starred in “Star Trek” and “Pathfinder”, is going to be offered the lead role in 2000AD’s long- planned reboot of the comic book movie.

The Playlist recently ran a script review on the film (script was written by Danny Boyle’s right-hand man Alex Garland) and, on the whole, it’s positive.

Said the review, “It’s a very action heavy script, with some amazing sequences that will make any Dredd fan happy…this is a gritty film, that plays the world we are in as a realistic future, a very dark, unpleasant crime ridden world as Dredd explains ‘Twelve serious crimes reported every minute. Seventeen thousand per day. We respond to around six percent’. The famous ‘I am the law’ makes a few appearances….It never felt too long or too short, It’s just right. The pace is fantastic and if shot well would make for one visually stunning piece upon release.

“It never felt too long or too short, It’s just right. The pace is fantastic and if shot well would make for one visually stunning piece upon release.

“There is a very cool sequence told from a junkies POV high on SLO-MO, the cool visuals of melting images, vibrant colours and [a] slow raid by Dredd and Anderson will be [something] very cool to see.”

Dredd keep his helmet on this time, then?
