Urban Casting RumorPosted by T'Bonz - 22/07/10 at 11:07 am
The Judge Dredd reboot may feature Karl Urban (Star Trek XI‘s Dr. McCoy) in the lead role.
According to Bleeding Cool, Judge Dredd, played by Sylvester Stallone in 1995, has been offered to Urban.
Judge Dredd is based on a comic that first appeared thirty years ago in 2000 A.D. a British-based, sci-fi oriented weekly comic book anthology. In Judge Dredd, set in a dystopian future, uniformed “Street Judges” patrol Mega-City-One, dispensing “on-the-spot” justice, functioning as police, judge, jury and executioner.
Dredd rides a cannon-powered, computer equipped motorcycle (The Lawmaster), carries a DNA-coded handgun (The Lawgiver), a “pliability-inducing” baton and he wear as half-helmet that covers all of his face save his mouth and jaw.
