Self-confessed fanboy Karl Urban (“Chronicles of Riddick”, “Doom”) was jumping at the bit to play 2000 AD’s legendary comic-book strongman Judge Dredd on the big screen. In this frank interview, the New Zealand actor talks about the excitement of working on “Dredd”, with director Pete Travis.

Dredd takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot – if necessary. The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision of director Peter Travis bring Dredd to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip.
