Jungle Cruise Review 'SUMMER ADVENTURE of the year'

Karl Urban First Look As Judge Dredd

First Look At Judge Dredd Good Friday to everyone. We get our first look at Karl Urban (Star Trek, Red) as Judge Dredd . From what you can see from the picture it stays true to the comic book, from the first look at the costume we are miles ahead of how Stallone looked. The picture was posted on a Twitter account for Jock who is the concept artist working on the film, let's hope he doesn't lose his job for this. "There’s been a change in comic-book movies; they were treated unseriously and now they’re treated seriously. We’ve cast a guy called Karl Urban to play Dredd. We’ll be shooting in Johannesburg, it’s being directed by Pete Travis, we’re shooting with the people who did District 9 – and if we get it right, Alex has a couple of ideas for other stories as well. It’s not based on any one comic, and John Wagner is involved in every decision."  View the picture after the Jump.. Please Leave A Comment- Source- @jock4twenty

Karl Urban Confirmed For Judge Dredd Reboot

Karl Urban Confirmed For Judge Dredd Reboot Karl Urban has been confirmed for the leading role in Judge Dredd by producers Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich of the new film. Urban had been rumoured for the role already, but in a Movie-Con Q&A this evening the pair confirmed that he has been cast for the film, shooting in South Africa soon. “The main thing about Dredd is that it’s a fantastic comic that was completely messed up 20 years ago," said Macdonald. "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." "There’s been a change in comic-book movies; they were treated unseriously and now they’re treated seriously.
