This is borderline as to whether we should be covering Judge Dredd or not but I am sure you will all forgive me. The second photo of Karl Urban as Judge Dredd has hit the web via BC showing Karl Urban as Dredd wearing the iconic helmet from the comics.
If you ignore DOOM and Pathfinder Karl Urban has had an ok career capped with a top performance in the Star Trek remake. I think he has the look and potential of pulling off a stark and dangerous Dredd character. The original film which starred Diane Lane ( who is just a shot now as she was then ) and Sylvester Stallone may have been panned by critics but I still loved it. Lena Headey from The Sarah Conner Chronicles and 300 is co-starring and my assumption is she will play the role Diane Lane did in the first film.
The remake is called ‘Dredd’ and is slated for a release in 2012. It is based off the comic and set in a violent, futuristic city, the police have the authority to act as judge, jury and executioner. I am looking forward to this film alot more then the Total Call Remake or the Fright Night remake that is for sure!
