KARL URBAN CONFIRMED AS JUDGE DREDD
As I reported last month, Karl Urban (of Star Trek fame) has been confirmed as Judge Dredd in the remake due to arrive on the big screen late next year.
Producer Andrew Macdonald had this to say when speaking to Empire Online;
“Our idea is to make a very hard, R-rated, gritty, realistic movie of Dredd in Megacity, so we’ve got to get the tone right. He’s not going to take off his helmet. His bike is going to feel real. He’s going to hit people and it’s going to feel real.”
While the story is not going to be based on any one comic (you KNOW if this is popular they will do Block wars and Apocalypse arcs) but here is the even more amazing news – John Wagner, master of Dredd, is being consulted every step along the way!
With the people shooting this responsible for District 9, a promise that the helmet is staying on and an amazing Judge Dredd writer being consulted on story and tone this really can’t go wrong.
This sounds awesome! This sounds very very awesome. Karl Urban is the law!
